Australia’s premiere blackened melodic metal force KING have continued to go from strength to strength since releasing their debut album, Reclaim The Darkness in 2016.

Recently they just carved a path across Australia with a run of select dates on the Cold Winds Across Australia Tour which ends this weekend in Hobart at the Brisbane Hotel with guests Ruins, Blackhelm and Permafog.

To cap off such an epic 12 months, the band have released a new music video for the track One World, One King.

The band comment on the song: One World One King is a change of pace, slow and powerful and a great closer for the album. We felt it deserved to be highlighted with an epic music video. It also coincides with the one year anniversary of KING’s debut which is an important milestone for usThe video was shot on the southern coast of Australia on the southernmost tip of a long peninsular, in wild weather, stormy seas, set against black basalt rock cliffs and ferocious rain, enjoy it!

KING will be supporting Paradise Lost in Melbourne at The Corner Hotel December 16

Critical Acclaim for Reclaim The Darkness has been unanimous across the globe!
