The legendary King’s X is back at it again with their new release “Ogre Tones” on Inside Out Records. The bands first CD came back in 1988 with “Out of the Silent Planet ” and with that release they haven’t looked back. Doug Pinnick is the mastermind behind King’s X. In 1990, he was asked to replace Ian Gillian as the lead vocalist of Deep Purple and he declined, he also did guest vocals on Dream Theatre’s “Falling Into Infinity ” album.

King’s X has never received critical acclaim as a super band. Their music in the early stages of the band did have some airplay and they did extensive touring but never reached the height of success. Even with the new release “Ogre Tones” that is an exceptional release, I feel King’s X still does not have that element that will bring them the attention they deserve. Songs like “If,” “Bebop” and “Honesty” are classic tunes that have the flare of Oasis; Their writing ability is fine-tuned and should be given a chance to be heard.
