The King Is Blind are a band from the United Kingdom that has recently been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2014 ep "The Deficiencies Of Man" which will be released in September by Mordgrimm".
A very dark and atmospheric sound starts off the ep before going into a more brutal death metal direction along with blast beats and a mixture of growls and screams and you can hear a very heavy old school vibe in their musical sound and there is also a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts present throughout the recording.
Some of the riffing on the recording has a black metal feeling to it at times while some of the slower parts shows the band bringing in elements of groove as well as the darkness of doom metal and one of the tracks sees a small amount of melodic chanting before going into a faster direction with the following track and adding in grindcore influences and on the last song there is a brief use of acoustic guitars.
The King Of Blind take their music into a faster and old school death metal direction on this recording while still having a bit of doom metal in their sound, the production sound s very professional while the lyrics cover darkness, mythology and anti religion themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from The King Is Blind and if you are a fan of doom and death metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Of Osiris & Execration" and "Revelation, Apocalypse". 8out of 10.
