"proem" EP (Roadrunner; 2014)
Reviewed by Jeff Rogers
King 810 are from Flint, Michigan which lead screamer
David Gunn describes as "it makes me never want to visit." Flint, MI is
considered one of the most dangerous cities to live in, thus, the lyrics are on
"proem" are depressing to say the least. The stories yelled by David Gunn scared
the stuff out of me, he basically lets you know that its a war zone and you
better not even look his way or he will have no choice but to bury you. The last
track, "anatomy 1:1" is a spoken poem about how tough it is in Flint and that
nothing is being done about it.
The music is major heavy, depressingly heavy at that. It's got a cool groove though and I felt a bit guilty enjoying it because I know that it comes from such a visceral place.
"God left the slums alone and you're sitting here with Satan."

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
