KING-HELL BREAKTHROUGH – I KILLED PHARAOH
LJCD77 // LP // 21-APRL-2008
A creeping, wheezing gasp of clarity in the otherwise nonplussed ear of humanity, King-Hell Breakthrough is eleven tracks of brilliant menace, a collection of songs to jump to, to cry with, and to swear by.
Recorded and crafted with renowned alchemist and knob-fiddler Russ Russell, it tells the stories of a number of people affected by a single event, and encompasses the many musical and literary influences that have helped slap IKP into the state they currently find themselves in.
For fans of Faith No More, Deftones and Alice in Chains.
King-Hell Breakthrough is available now from Amazon, or if you contact COMMIT directly.
