The King Is Blind are delighted to confirm that they have signed a deal with relaunched seminal UK label Cacophonous Records to release their debut album Our Father in January 2016.
Vocalist Stephen John Tovey stated:
“Cacophonous has always had a reputation for uncovering some truly remarkable new talent, and we’re delighted to continue the legacy not just of the label, but of British metal. Bands like Napalm Death, Cathedral, Paradise Lost, and My Dying Bride et al exploded out of the UK closely followed Cradle of Filth’s debut. That is the full intention of The King Is Blind, for Our Father – to be an album that enhances the heritage of British metal”
Guitarist Paul Alan Ryan-Reader, who played on the very first Cacophonous Records full length The Principle Of Evil Made Flesh enthused:
“It feels good to blast out some death metal riffs again, and I’m delighted Cacophonous, in their ‘resurrection’, want to put the record out. It married with the concept of Our Father, of the beast re-emerging, and it’s a great closing of the circle for me. I couldn’t think of a more fitting choice for such ungodly worship”
Cacophonous cult leader Frater Nihil added:
“I’ve been friends with TKIB guitarist Paul since 1992, from his early days in Cradle of Filth. He played me some material when TKIB were in their infant stages, and I was blown away. The songs were immense; listening to them was like stepping back into the halcyon days of the death metal scene. When the opportunity arose to relaunch Cacophonous they were the first band I thought of in terms of a release; they’re angry, visceral and brutal, everything you’d want in a death metal band. They’re everything the label showcases”
More details relating to Our Father will follow shortly.
