Forming in 2013, The King Is Blind has been consistently putting out content nearly year after year. After a demo in 2013 and 2014, they released an EP titled The Deficiencies of Man only to follow that up with their debut full length Our Father in 2016. Now more than a year later, The King Is Blind has released their sophomore full length We Are The Parasite, We Are The Cancer. With such a harsh title, one can expect that the music will be exactly the same, harsh, cruel and punishing and that is exactly what you get within this brand new nine track release.
We Are The Parasite, We Are The Cancer is a grim and unrelenting death metal release that employs the use of thrash and even some elements of doom to create an even more chaotic and spine bending sound. The King Is Blind shoots right out of the gate right after the lead vocalist whispers to you that we are in fact the parasite and the cancer. From here on in The King Is Blind doesn’t look back as they lay waste to all parasites and useless vermin. From track to track you are sure to get an ear full of shredding and uncompromising death metal that does exactly what it should do, and that is smash your face until you are barely recognizable.
There aren’t too many “relaxing” moments on this record as The King Is Blind blasts and chips away at your skull only to expose your rotted brain. From track one until track nine you are provided with violent, grim and gritty metal that you are sure to revel in and bang your head to. We Are The Parasite, We Are The Cancer is an undeniably infectious release that gets right under your skin and makes a home there for some time to come. We Are The Parasite, We Are The Cancer as a whole is an entirely entertaining release that has all of the capability to make you lose it and thrash about like the pure maniac that you truly are.
Through flesh ripping riffs, blasting drums, ever prominent bass lines and rabid vocals, The King Is Blind gifts you one barbaric and unfiltered listen. We Are The Parasite, We Are The Cancer is a tightly knit and well performed record through and through. This release doesn’t leave you feeling as though there should be more to it as The King Is Blind packs so much in to this record that you leave the listen feeling satisfied as to what you just listened to.
We Are The Parasite, We Are The Cancer is a complete barn-and cross-burning record that is unrelenting and unwavering. Each track is just as solid as the one that came before it ultimately providing you with an entirely entertaining and blood boiling listen.
