EDITORS’ NOTES

Fit for a King follow up their 2013 breakthrough Creation/Destruction with an even more intense slice of metalcore mayhem that seethes with both raw power and finely-honed precision. Brutal breakdowns, jackhammer tempos and lacerating guitar work are counterpointed against the mighty one/two punch of Ryan Kirby’s harsh vocals and Bobby Lynge’s clean singing. Slave to Nothing is particularly impressive lyrically, with “A Greater Sense of Self” and the title tune striking deep chords of Christian sacrifice and redemption. Sonically ferocious tracks like “Kill the Pain,” “Forever Unbroken” and “Imposter” exalt the Creator with savage hosannas.

TITLE TIME

About Fit for a King

Formed in 2007, Fit for a King are a metalcore band from Tyler, Texas who have been making a name for themselves with a furious sound and a driving desire to tour. Made up of singer Ryan Kirby, guitarists Justin Hamra and Bobby Lynge, bassist Aaron Kadura, and drummer Jared Easterling, the band spent their early years relentlessly hitting the road before self-releasing their debut, Descendants, in 2011. Their hard work eventually paid dividends when the band was picked up by Solid State Recording, who reissued their debut in 2013. With the backing of a label, the band went into the studio with producer Andreas Magnusson, and began work on their debut album for the label. The fruits of their labor, Creation/Destruction, arrived in 2013. The Will Putney-produced Slave to Nothing arrived the following year, and saw the band crack the Top Ten on both the Billboard Christian Albums and Top Hard Rock Albums charts. In August 2016 Fit for a King issued "Pissed Off," the first single from their much-anticipated fourth studio LP, Deathgrip, which arrived in October of that year. ~ Gregory Heaney
