Kings Destroy, Fantasma Nera: Where You’ll Find Yourself

Friday, March 15th, 2019

The usual disclaimer: I won’t pretend to be impartial about a new Kings Destroy release. I’ve followed with great intrigue the process by which the New York five-piece have made Fantasma Nera, from the composition of the songs to working with producer David Bottrill — who has helmed records for Tool, King Crimson, and many, […]

Live Review: Kings Destroy, Gozu, Forming the Void and Clamfight in Brooklyn, 03.02.19

Tuesday, March 5th, 2019

Half a decade ago, I tagged along with Kings Destroy on a West Coast tour that took us, among other places, through a snowstorm in Wyoming. It was late at night, and cars were sliding off the road and pulled over with their flashers on, plows nowhere to be seen. A general wreck. I took […]

Someday the Middle East will be gone. The real estate is simply too valuable. Walking up to what’s one of Boston’s most celebrated venues, you can see the encroaching condos across the street looming over the restaurant, nightclub and huge Downstairs basement space like skeletal godzillae, hollow inside and just waiting for their alluring names […]

Thursday, January 31st, 2019

Brooklyn’s Kings Destroy are getting ready once again to fuck with the formula via their fourth long-player, Fantasma Nera, which branches into new levels of progressive songwriting and melody while turning their confrontational aspect inward as much as outward in theme and execution. Like everything they’ve done, it leaves the past in its dust. Set […]

Kings Destroy Sign to Svart Records; Fantasma Nera Due March 8

Monday, January 14th, 2019

It was two years ago yesterday that Kings Destroy released their 2017 single-song EP, None More (review here), which I’m still proud to say was the first tape I played on my current Walkman. Nonetheless, as they move toward four years removed from their 2015’s self-titled (review here), the good news arrives that the anti-genre five-piece have signed […]

Things have been quiet on the surface from Brooklyn’s Kings Destroy the last couple months. Sure, they shared the stage with YOB over the summer and issued the single-song 14-minute None More EP (review here) early this year, but while there hasn’t been much word from them since, currents have been running full speed, carrying […]
