ϟϟϟ KING HISS ϟϟϟ
The mutual love for heavy music combined with the genuine desire to create catchy, accessible tunes, was the main motivation for the 4 gentlemen of King Hiss to form a band.
The fact that every bandmember came from a different musical background - ranging from hardcore to metal, over classic and stonerrock - contributed to their own trademark style and sound.
If you were to give human form to their musical style, it would probably be the bastard child of Mastodon and Kyuss: a mix of voracious riffing, thunderous rhythms and exhausting energy.
King Hiss declared January 2012 the right time to release their first 3-song demo onto the unsuspecting ears of their fans. And boy, did it leave a mark. Following this first release, a ton of shows were played, good times were had and a solid fanbase was built.
Writing songs became second nature and combined with a strict workethic, the boys entered the studio once more to record a 7-song EP called ‘Snakeskin’. Their releaseshow in April 2013 sold out and the reviews were overwhelmingly positive. Two videos were released for the songs ‘Rollergirl’ and ‘Snakeskin’ (thanks to much appreciated help of some very talented friends). The journey towards bigger and better stages continued.
Over the course of the last 2 years, King Hiss supported insanely cool bands like Red Fang, Kvelertak and Steak Number Eight. They also shared stages with legendary acts such as Mondo Generator, The Sword, Karma To Burn, The Exploited, and many more.
The fact that King Hiss was one of the few Belgian bands asked to play the legendary Graspop Metal Meeting in 2013, should testify to the professional level at which they make and play music.
And the future is looking bright. January 2014 marks the start of pre-production for King Hiss’ first full album. The boys are teaming up with Ace Zec (Ocean Side Studios) to get their sound to the next level. They are aiming to record 12 brandnew songs that will reflect the musical growth they experienced while playing together.
King Hiss is
* Jan Coudron – vocals
* Josh Fury – guitars
* Dominiek Hoet – bass
* Jason Bernard – drums
ϟϟϟ SUPPORTS ϟϟϟ
ϟϟϟ GRIZZLYNCHER ϟϟϟ
Grizzlyncher is a Belgian band with great ambition and attitude. Hailing from Bruges, and born as a youngster quadruplet in the summer of 2010, they are a (post)hardcore/sludge/southern hardrock outfit with a very contemporary sound. If you listen closely, you may even recognize some new wave and stoner rock due to their trademarked catchy hooks and intriguing soundscapes. Stir it all up real good and you get the rock ‘n’ roll, yet very sensitive, brew that is Grizzlyncher. The band is set to release a brandnew EP "O'Cetacean" early 2014!
ϟϟϟ SONS OF DISASTER ϟϟϟ
Sons of Disaster is a BxHell based, high octane Rock & Roll band. Their music is infused with overcharged riffs, selfdestructive hardhitting grooves, unforgiving basslines and lyrics spawned by Satan himself. These guys pride themselves in playing every gig as if it's their last. Their last album 'Death And Destruction' dropped in October 2013 and following that release, they played a shitload of cool shows. Believe us: this is one band you DO NOT want to miss out on!
