KING HEAVY: lights on “La Gárgola”!

Epic doom metallers KING HEAVY introduce today “La Gárgola” the first track off their upcoming self-titled release out in early September.


“La Gárgola” (spanish for “Gargoyle”) gives a very good perspective of what you will find on the album, Heavy, Epic Doom Metal led by the multifaceted vocals of Luce Vee (Hooded Priest / Witchsmeller Pursuivant),  melting into twisted and obscures melodies much in the line of Celtic Frost’s masterpiece “Into the Pandemonium”.

Shortly after the release of the album (coming in compact disc, limited LP and digital) the band will embark on a tour that will bring them to Europe playing both Malta Doom Fest and Dutch Doom Days festivals.

Tracklist:
La Gárgola
Life A.D.
As Dawn Broke On The Day
Thirteen Chosen Ones
Wounds
The Crowning
He Who Spoke In Tongues

KING HEAVY to release self-titled debut album in September 2015

Chilean / Belgian band KING HEAVY is set to release its debut full length on Cruz Del Sur Music on September 4 in Europe and September 19 in USA.

KING HEAVY was formed in 2009 by ex-Procession founder Daniel Perez Saa and Luce Vee known for being the vocalist of Dutch Doom Metal act Hooded Priest. Shortly 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.  King Heavy rocks!

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 which were recorded by Peter Maene at Creative Factory, Belgium.

Shortly after the release of the album, the band will engage a Chilean and  European tour which will bring them to Malta’s Doom Fest, Dutch Doom Days, Biebob (the notorious Belgian metal club)…  Other tour dates will be published and confirmed very soon!
