King's Girls

King’s Girls

This 4-piece Halifax based group is one of my favourite new emoviolence bands. After their brilliant ep called “Numbers” which was released on 30 December 2013, the guys are back with some harsh tunes.

These 4 guys play a very captivating dark-hardcore-violence blast between bands like Alpinist (or Jungbluth), Hexis, maybe Danse Macabre…and yeah they do it unbelievable well. The band was founded in autumn of 2012 and they recorded this whole thing in winter 2012/2013. It’s a pretty astounding result for such a… Read More »
