All Music Guide:
Capturing the swagger and grit of '70s hard rock, KYNG came together in 2008 to introduce the world to their self-described "California heavy" sound. Based out of Los Angeles, the trio of Eddie Veliz (guitars/vocals), Tony Castaneda (bass), and Pepe Clarke (drums) blends the classic heaviness of bands like Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin with the pop-leaning rock sound of Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age, creating an infectiously heavy blend of old and new that dances between hard and stoner rock. The band's debut album, Trampled Sun, appeared in 2011 on RealiD Records.
