KING HEAVY - Debut Album Out In September

  • Print

Interested how it might sound a mixture between Candlemass, Black Sabbath, Celtic Frost and early Danzig? Wait no more for the answer, here's a thing for you and its name is King Heavy! The band will release their self-titled debut album on 4th September via Cruz Del Sur Music. King Heavy was formed in 2009 by ex-Procession founder Daniel Perez Saa and Luce Vee, known for being the vocalist of Belgian doom metal act Hooded Priest. Shortly after, guitarist Matias Aguirre and drummer Miguel Canessa were added to the line-up and in 2014 the band self-released an EP entitled Horror Absoluto which was later repressed on split-vinyl by French label Emanes Records. King Heavy is so much more than nowadays mono-dimensional, superficial doom metal. Aside from strong elements of Candlemass and of the more traditional doom metal sound, King Heavy offers tons of epic arrangements and a twisted touch that definitely reminds of Black Sabbath’s Born Again, Celtic Frost Into the Pandemonium and the early, darkest side of Danzig. The album contains 7 songs for a total running time of over 47 minutes and has been recorded, engineered, mixed and mastered by Pablo Clares at DM6 Studio, Chile;  vocals were recorded by Peter Maene at Creative Factory, Belgium. Shortly after the release of the album, the band will undertake a Chilean and European tour which will bring them to Malta’s Doom Fest, Dutch Doom Days, Biebob (the notorious Belgian metal club) among others.
