Undearth The Kings: The Southern Necessity
Worcester metalcore alliance hit a compulsive stride
Boasting members from Cars On Fire, Axewound and earthtone9, Unearth The Kings’ debut album is backed by a PledgeMusic campaign and picks up where 2014’s glorious And Yet It Moves EP left off, with the addition of four new songs.
The outcome is seven slabs of unapologetic, punk-soaked metalcore. It hits full-throttle from the off, with Ali Ross’s vocals veering wildly between Every Time I Die-esque vitriol and anthemic warbling on opener My Name Is Architect, while the rampaging Iron Tongue is teeming with hook-laden riffage.
