While Kings Destroy have a hardcore background, with two members having logged time in Killing Time, the band traffics in sludgy stoner rock. Their 2010 debut album, And the Rest Will Surely Perish, established them in and around the NYC area, but they’ve stepped it up for their sophomore album, A Time of Hunting. Produced and recorded by Sanford Parker, the album is also one of the first releases on War Crime Recordings, the label founded by Parker and Yakuza saxophonist Bruce Lamont. The album won’t be out until May 14, but Spin is streaming “Casse-Tete,” one of the standout songs on the album. It’s a six minute sludgefest that sounds like Black Sabbath fronted by Trouble’s Eric Wagner. If you’re in or around the New York area, Kings Destroy will be playing with Orange Goblin, KEN Mode, ASG and Roadsaw at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn this Monday (22).
