“A fine way for legendary UK underground imprint Cacophonous to reopen their doors… This band [has] produced a devastatingly potent and exciting heavy metal album that could have genuine crossover potential. 8/10.” – Metal Hammer Magazine
“The debut full-length from these East Anglians is more than just a throwback to the halcyon days of extreme metal, with a good measure of gut-slicing grooves and morbid suspense adding contemporary weight to their satanic substance. KKKK.” – Kerrang! Magazine
East Anglian Monolithic Metal 5-piece THE KING IS BLIND have today unveiled a new video for the pummelling FRAGILITY BECOMES WRATH. The track is taken from their behemoth debut album OUR FATHER (KKKK – Kerrang!, 8/10 – Metal Hammer) which features in Metal Hammer’s ‘Top 20 Albums of 2016 So Far’ , and follows previous single …FOR ALL THE DAEMONS ARE HERE which received multiple spins on BBC Radio 1 Rock Show.
“’Fragility Becomes Wrath’ has firmly established itself as a live favourite within our set already, and we wanted this video to give people a snapshot of the intensity we bring to the live arena, while still retaining elements of the mysticism that litters our work. We returned to our home stamping-ground of Colchester Arts Centre, with the talented Danny B of HVR Video at the helm, to blast out a video befitting the hurtling juggernaut that the track is, and to imbue the visuals with all the energy and battery people are coming to expect of The King Is Blind.
Lyrically, the song works on two levels. Adapted from John Milton’s Paradise Lost, it reveals the story of the War of Heaven from the point of view of the main protagonist, Satan, and shares his rage, adrenaline and, ultimately, failure, with the music reflecting the emotions he endures; whilst simultaneously exploring how a whisper can become a scream… how from the smallest acorn, the mightiest oaks may rise, and how within us all we can find the motivation to metamorphose from a state of fragility to embody the behemoth that is wrath. Each and every one of us has the potential within to achieve feats of greatness. ‘Fragility…’ and its accompanying video is the perfect embodiment of everything that is The King Is Blind right now”
