The "New Band To Burn One To" today is RAT KING!! RAT KING are an experimental/ambient/dark lounge metal band from Chennai, India! This is a band like you've never heard before, fusing elements of psychedelic, ambient and folk themes with experimental, industrial metal. If you haven't heard their music, now is the time! With influences as diverse as David Lynch, Fantomas, Philip Glass and Andrei Tarkovsky, this is a band like nothing you've ever heard before.
Rat King have recently released their second album 'Larva' as well as a re-master of their 2008 release, 'The Plague Of Hamelin'. The 2008 edition of 'The Plague Of Hamelin' received critical acclaim from international webzines such as Industrialized Metal, Kvltsite and Metalwave.
'The Plague Of Hamelin' is a morbidly distorted version of the Grimm Brother's fairy tale, The Pied Piper Of Hamelin, and 'Larva' deals with a psychopath, whose recurring nightmares and visions lead him into complete and total disintergration.
The artwork of 'Larva' has been done by Emerson P Williams (Veil Of Thorns, Choronzon) and looks fantastic! This album is a must have, I'll tell you that much.
For fans of John Zorn, Mike Patton, Godflesh, Ministry, Type O Negative, Carcass, and Gnaw Their Tongues.
