Canada’s burgeoning punk-tinged rockers King Bull has a new EP Conflicting Opinions On Mold And Bacteria out now on digital platforms via Riot Records, alongside new single ‘I Hate Waiting’.
Hell bent on making a record that would upset folks in the FM radio industry, King Bull haphazardly put together Conflicting Opinions On Mold And Bacteria. Fancy recording studios and high budgets were apparently scrapped in favour of a dank mildew filled basement with a tendency to flood when a hose-happy French Canadian over waters spruce trees for no reason. If you’re sick of the highly polished overproduced rubbish that everyone’s putting out nowadays, you should give this a shot. It can be ordered here.
Meanwhile, ‘I Hate Waiting’ is said to sizzle “like spam on a pan”. The song itself is fat and cholesterol free, but it might still give you a heart attack. It’s about impatience and bulging veins. Those with pacemakers are advised to listen with caution.
The full track liasting is ‘Don’t Want You to Know’, ‘Never Seen You Smile’, ‘Cigarette’, ‘Scary’ featuring Ryan Kuly, and ‘I Hate Waiting’.
King Bull do not sound like Metallica. The distorted vocal would likely be considered ignorant by most people, but there’s a chance Iggy Pop would maybe like it. If you have the gout you’ll probably be able to relate to the lyrical content.
King Bull encompass 70s rock and punk with an angsty vibe and some earthy streetwise riffs and powered by a punk-tinged, rock-ignited fuel.
Fired up by intricate licks, buzz-cutter guitar tones and uniquely edgy vocals, The band has been together a baker’s dozen years but not one band member half a century yet, they mix classic rock with edgy punk, the kind of stuff you might like were you into The Who or The Stooges.
Previosly they released the singles ‘Never Seen You Smile‘ – that is still available here and before that ‘Don’t Want You to Know’, that’s also still available across digital platforms through Riot Records here. Louder and less logical than anything else they’d accomplished previously, you arer advised to turn it up and watch the smoke pour from your amplifier as your speakers explode. The trio feel this one is sure to encourage children to smoke and dogs to wet themselves.
Those singles followed last year’s EP What Happened Here and their third single for the Riot Records label, and that was ‘B-Side Baby’.‘B-Side Baby’ was described as a little ditty “that dives from garage fused punky rock to an incredible Guns N’ Roses styled crescendo.
You can check out two of those single’s videos here at RAMzine.
