Album Review

That Jamey Jasta is one busy gentleman. In addition to all his other projects (Hatebreed, running Stillborn Records, and up until recently, hosting Headbangers Ball, etc.) in 2008, he somehow found the time to unveil his latest musical venture, Kingdom of Sorrow, which turns out to be a collaboration with Crowbar/Down riffmeister Kirk Windstein. The group's self-titled debut is equal parts hardcore metal (the vocals) and sludge metal (the music), as evidenced by such pummeling, heavy-duty tracks as "Grieve a Lifetime," "Lead into Demise," and "Begging for the Truth." Consistently midtempo and burning with rage, Kingdom of Sorrow doesn't present very many musical surprises, but fans of Hatebreed, Crowbar, and Down should find it all very appealing.

Grew On Me

I was a little disappointed at first listen as I was under the impression that this was going to be heavier than Hatebreed, although I have come to appreciate it after further listening! I'm a huge fan of Jasta's & have come to realize that this is "supposed " to be different! Not as brutal as Hatebreed but metal enough for most! I'm a death metal nut (Suffocation,Deicide,Death) So I was hoping more along the lines of Unearth with Kerswill as the drummer! This at times sounds like Pantera,Down,Old Sepultura with Max Cavelera & actually Chimaira's self titled album! Some very good Catchy Stuff nonetheless!

Pick it up!

I grew up listening to Crowbar and Hatebreed unlike most of the kids who've reviewed this thing. Kirk Windstein and Jamey Jasta sound like they came out of the same womb 10 years apart. Their voices mesh well, and it's like you're getting the "best of" collection of Crowbar riffs with some of the best drumming they've ever had to drive them! (Giving props to Derek Kurswell) Piece It All Back Together is a standout track for me, but I'm sure you'll have your own favorite too. This album is well oiled, tight, and will make you want to punch somebody in the face!

Even if you don't like Hatebreed...

I still strongly suggest this record. I'm not a fan Hatebreed at all but I absolutely love this jam. Pick it up!

Another side project from Crowbar's Kirk Windstein and Hatebreed's James Jasta, Kingdom of Sorrow was formed in 2005, when the two found they had a desire to pay homage to some of the heavier legends in the genre, and add their own individual stamp to the style. Working with producer Zeuss, the band completed their first album, Kingdom of Sorrow in 2007, and it was slated for release in February of 2008 by Relapse.
