Sounds | King Hiss, Revolt!

En hupla, ook King Hiss trapt af met een eerste single die een regelrechte djoef op je muile is. Horen we hier Thrash Metal invloeden? Het is bijna alsof Anthrax, ten tijde van Neil Turbin, door je speakers knalt: een razend tempo, een gezonde scheut aggressie en ook hier de juiste dosering melodie zodat het nummer zich vlot in je gehoor nestelt. Gaat het nieuwe album Earthquaker (ik moet bij deze titel steeds aan Earth Rocker van Clutch denken, of Earthshaker van Y&T) volledig die richting uit of wordt het eerder een aanvulling op hun Stoner/Groove Metal? Het antwoord krijgen we op 1 november te horen. Hun release show vindt plaats in De Kreun op 1 november!

In the vicinity of Flanders Fields, the Belgian big bang is a well-known phenomenon. It occurred during a thunderous night when H8000 legend Joost Noyelle, vocalist Jan Coudron and rhythm section Dominiek Hoet & Jason Bernard decided to join forces. Wayward sons only a mother could embrace. Their goal? Write earth shaking songs with a nasty attitude. And conquer the world. Against all trends, with headstrong ways.KING HISS was born. King of voracious riffs with vicious fangs and a bad breath ...We’re talking 2011. 2016. Five years later and things have moved at breath-taking speed for KING HISS. You must have lived under a rock if you missed themat work. Sold-out clubs? Check! Festivals, both big and small? Check! Features in all the relevant magazines, off- and online? Check! Their previous records SNAKESKIN (EP) and full-length debut SADLANDS - including a collaboration with Dave Collins (QOTSA, Black Sabbath, MötleyCrüe, etc.) - received overwhelming positive reviews. Bothnationally and internationally. But the stage is the natural habitat for these loud Vikings of the Low Countries. That’s where they’re at their best. Singer Coudron grabs every opportunity to exorcise his many demons, as if it’s his last performance ever. Right by his side, Joost Noyelle (Congress, Liar, Man’s Ruin) can rightly be called a modest living legend. Providing 6-string riff tornadoes, with melody and aggression in equal doses. Rhythm section Dominiek ‘Visioene’ Hoet (bass) & Jason Bernard (drums) complete KING HISS as the musical version of a painting by Hieronymus Bosch. Rougher than Ragnar’s beard and tighter than a duck’s ass, that’s what you’ll remember about the four gents on stage. For their previous creation, MASTOSAURUS, KING HISS went into the Oceanside Studio with producer/drummer ACE ZEC (Death Before Disco, Customs & Nailpin). The right person to entrust their 10 songs full of ‘grit’ to tape. No compromises, no pulling punches. 10 times TKO, causing maximum damage. The songs were then mixed in Austin, USA by MACHINE, known for his solid work for Clutch, Crobot, Fall Out Boy, Lamb Of God & We Came As Romans amongst others. The mastering was done by PAUL LOGUS (NY, USA) no less. You probably know him for his previous work for Anthrax, Clutch, Steel Panther and our very own Diablo Blvd. With the new album EARTHQUAKER, the band remains in Belgium, stating there is enough talent present to deliver a bomb.
