THE KING'S HEAD
Dutch alternative rock band The King's Head have released their debut single and video The Far Beyond on all available streaming services. The single is a forerunner of their self-titled debut album which will come out later this year. The band is on full strength, ready and willing to take the battle to the front lines.
THE KING'S HEAD is an alternative rock band from The Netherlands.The year is 2018, when The King’s Head is formed in Breda, a city in the deep south of the country. Five guys, who have all been playing the local scene since the late nineties, join forces. Their mission is clear from the first time: a dark, melodic, progressive and fresh hybrid of everything they loved to listen to in their formative years. Most notably in that department is the deep and haunting growl that Pim van Zuilen unleashes in the music. Not only is he the bringer of the storm, but while doing that he pulls a double musical duty as a guitar and keyboard player. Singer / guitar player Tim van Bokhoven is confidently in charge of the mic and strings, delivering his raw and emotional vocals with sheer ferocity. Lead guitar player Koen Koniuszek brings thunder and flavor with his dark and haunting lead work and his heavy, punishing riff work. Behind the first line of fire resides the engine that drives it all forward. Jasper van der Hoeven on bass and vocals and Chris Stadhouders on drums provide the deep and driving foundation on which the wall of sound is built. After two years of working on their craft, the band is ready to start their first campaign.
Grunge with a heavy edge
The music of The King's Head is as diverse as rock history itself. They take the listener on a journey that goes from classic hard rock to grunge and from sludge to the melodic side of metal, topped off with a progressive edge. Dark vocal harmonies that take the listener back to days when the great alternative rock movement ruled the world at the end of the last millennium. Combined with a heavy edge, that makes no mistake that some of the members had a good and healthy metal collection under their fingertips.
About The Far Beyond
"At last, the wheels are finally in motion. After recording our first, self-titled album in the last months of 2019, The King's Head made plans for festivities around releasing that bastard. But as we all know by now, the world took a different turn. We’ve decided to release the record later this year. But we still want to introduce ourselves to all of you right now. The first track we’re going to throw at you from an appropriate distance is called The Far Beyond, for which we made a video, too. That's one thing, and we believe that this song sums it all up very nicely. It has harmonies, it rocks in a slightly metallic way, it’s short and sweet and Tim sings his bloody heart out. Exactly the way we like doing things."
