King Parrot "Dead Set" Review

"Dead Set"
Released: May 19, 2015

If there was a grindcore version of Turbonegro, I would expect it to sound and appear like Australia's King Parrot. 

Out of their minds, over the top, precise without the appearance of much effort. This isn't work for these guys. Pure simple grindcore fun that comes second nature. 

The guttural death metal vocals accentuate the Sam Kinison-like vocals. I love the grooves this band creates as much as I love their all out attack. The grooves reminded me how much I love the grooves of fellow Australians Blood Duster. 

Check out this video for "Like a Rat" which features producer Philip H. Anselmo

"Dead Set" reached number 21 on the Australian national album chart in it's debut, the highest debut for an Australian extreme metal album to date.

I loved their last album too. Read the write up here:

"Dead Set" is a high volume, aggression with a smile, death/grind/groove metal fest of debauchery. 

King Parrot will be in Lancaster PA on Saturday July 18, 2015 with Superjoint Ritual and Child Bite. 

See you in the pit!
