KING, an unfaltering and melancholic blackened metal force - keeping the spirit of old while carving a new path, epic while remaining raw, majestic while retaining a primitive atmosphere.
Within the debut album “Reclaim The Darkness”, KING creates the perfect soundtrack to tell tales of an old world, a world forged by the gods and walked by giants. Tales of dark and bleak battles, never ending winters and the wonders of time and space.

KING was formed in 2013 by David Hill (guitar) and Tony Forde (vocals) who had worked together previously on grind core and death metal projects but shared the same drive to create something with more depth and space to express their musical ideas and concepts. David Haley joined on drums in 2014, his drum arrangements perfectly captured the atmosphere of KING taking the compositions to the next level. Drawing from shared musical influences, the underlying focus during the writing process was on strong song structures to allow the arrangements to effortlessly transition between raw black metal and epic, soaring layered melodies.

KING signed with renown Norwegian label Indie Recordings & released their debut album; Reclaim the Darkness on August 26th 2016.

2019 sees the release of a new single Mountains Call and the long awaited new album Coldest Of Cold available for pre-order now. Out Nov 22nd 2019 on Indie Recordings (world) EVP recordings (Australia)
