Sometimes we get a bit…iffy about recommending side-projects for something like If You Buy One Thing This Week. Guys from various bands get together, write some killer tracks then….then…nothing. Their other bands take precedence. The dream is dead.
Unearth The Kings is a new outfit from Owen Packard (from earthtone9) Ali Ross (Cars On Fire) and Jason Bowld (Axewound, Pitchshifter), and even if they never release another thing ever, we won’t regret recommending their 3-song debut EP as it is awesome.
When we first gave this one a spin, it reminded us of earthtone9 (0bvously), Devin Townsend, and The Plight (RIP) in equal measures. If you like any, of those bands, head on over here and grab a copy ASAP. The band are currently offering their entire EP as a pay-what-you-want basis from their official Bandcamp page, so you can get hold of it for nothing. If you’re cheap.
