Bay Area thrashers THE KING MUST DIE just released a video for “In Blood”. The songs comes from the upcoming sophomore record, due April 15th. The clip was directed by the guitarist Mike Sloat.
The King Must Die is a thrash metal band formed in 2011 and operating out of the San Francisco Bay Area. All five members of TKMD came of age at the height of the Bay Area thrash scene and those influences are evident in their aggressive, riff-driven, uptempo music.
Their new record, “Murder All Doubt” picks up where their 2014 debut, “Sleep Can’t Hide the Fear”, left off and shows a continued evolution of TKMD’s signature sound. Guitarists Mike Sloat and Kent Varty trade off galloping riffs and unexpectedly melodic solos with equal skill, while drummer Corky Crossler and bassist Scott Paterson provide a dynamically fluid and tight rhythmic base. Vocalist Doggie Doyle’s poetic lyrics, syncopated phrasing, and powerful delivery blend perfectly with the rest of the band to deliver a powerfully complete package. If you’re a metal fan, check out TKMD’s “Murder All Doubt”…and don’t miss a chance to see TKMD live!
