Review

King's X's Ogre Tones is nothing less than a grand slam. Loaded with the trio's trademark vocal harmonies, Doug Pinnick's patented bass burps, Ty Tabor's signature guitar stylings and Jerry Gaskill's unmistakable rhythmic skills behind the drum kit, this 14-song celebration is both accessible and heavy, somber and inspiring. The band has long been compared to The Beatles and herein lies the proof. The Beatles comparisons are more than simply the ethereal vocals. They're also about Pinnick and Co.'s ability to craft memorable songs, whether the opening stomp "Alone," the rifftastic "Fly," the uplifting rocker "If," or the gorgeous acoustic track "Honesty," which stands as a new career high. Lyrically, the group grapples with issues ranging from death to aging to global unrest with humor and warmth, injecting each song with the perfect balance of levity and curiosity. From beginning to end the Texas-based collective demonstrates its unique ability to bring pop, progressive and heavy rock together into one seamless blend that can only be called King's X. --Jedd BeaudoinThe legendary trio King's X are widely known as the pioneers of powerful groove rock. Highly respected by critics, adored by their fans and held in high esteem for their excellent instrumental skills by musicians from all areas of music - King's X has a brilliant reputation that is unequalled in this business. The new album Ogre Tones is their first studio album with new material in four years and it is already being touted one of the best in their catalogue. To properly welcome King's X to the IOMA / SPV / RYKO family, Inside Out Music will be implementing its most aggressive marketing/release plan to date. This will feature two promotional video clips that have already been filmed by famed Hip-Hip director, "Dr Teeth", a national commercial radio campaign, a stand-alone consumer advertising campaign and a 6-week North American tour that has been coordinated to begin with the release of the new CD. Ogre Tones was produced and mixed by Michael Wagener (Metallica, Alice Cooper, Queen, Ozzy Osbourne, Dokken, Megadeth, Motley Crue, Skid Row, Extreme).
