"Delusions of Grandeur"
Pissed off, politically charged, and passionate about preserving their music and culture, Killing Kings buck current trends of modern day Hardcore in favor of a more classic approach. Taking cues from the streetwise delivery of bands like Biohazard and Sick of It All, they are on mission to stand and deliver their own state of the world address from the perspective of the American working class. Delusions of Grandeur is an urgent wake-up call to the masses at large to stand and fight for the well-being of those who are exploited by the powers that be. With deep roots firmly planted in the Hardcore scene, these seasoned veterans are taking their years of knowledge and experience and injecting the spark of life back into a long-dormant creature. They deliver their message with an intensity that rivals the Hardcore greats, and are fearless in their exploration of subtle melodic nuances that recall classic albums like Life of Agony's River Runs Red, all without sacrificing the forceful precision of their sound. As torchbearers of a powerful sound that was once the mighty cornerstone of the Hardcore scene, they are set to revive the dwindling legions who have abandoned Hardcore's social conscience for hollow messages and commercial appeal. Killing Kings have arrived to reclaim the throne in the name of Hardcore and return power to the hardworking individuals in this country who have been trampled by government that claims to protect them. There is a revolution at hand, and Delusion of Grandeur is the soundtrack, get involved, or get left behind.
