Tag Archives: King 810
From Flint, Michigan, formed in 2007, King 810 – formerly known as simply King – are back with their second full length album. Entitled “La Petite Mort Or A Conversation With God”, it’s darker and more disturbing then the debut album was back in 2014.
This is quite murderous. Literally. Because David Gunn’s world is not as comfortable as your usual living room. It’s not live on TV, it happens to you. He speak up openly about real life, poverty, abuses, faith, violence and hate. He spits anger and portray the world as most of us refuse to see it. But, my beloved liars and fools, this is the world we are all living in, can’t deny it, can’t ignore it, one day it will come and get you anyway. (more…)
Violence. These days are pretty much about violence, no matter if we think about Iraq, Gaza, Ukraine or the United States of America. We can speak about what’s going on in Ferguson, Missouri, or we can look at what happened in Frisco, Texas where a 16-year-old homeschooled teenager shot down both his parents. And – unfortunately – we’ve got plenty of other stories on daily basics each and every day from all over the world.
King 810 make out of violence a kind of trademark and marketing strategy. Recently they had to cancel their gig at Download Festival because vocalist David Gunn and bassist Eugene Gill, were arrested and taken into custody on Friday on charges of “assault with intent to do great bodily harm” – for an incident occurred in October 2013, outside of a bar in Flint, MI. All because of a stupid fight and, eventually, publicity.
King 810 risking to be more famous for their criminal record and violent imaginary, rather then for their music… And it’s sad. And ultimately, it’s unfair too.
Something really went wrong with this species, isn’t it? (more…)
