What makes it so special? For me it's a combination of driving rhythms, an Arctic Monkeys northern-type twist on the vocals, catchy songs and great choruses. These songs are heavy, but all have a sense of melody and rhythm and for a three piece the sound is simply room filling.
It's difficult to compare the Virginmarys with anything contemporary because they have successfully infused so many genres on this album. From the strident Nirvana style openers Dead Man's Shoes and Portrait of Red to the White Stripes blues rock of My Little Girl, this band appear to have been listening to the right stuff. And do I detect a nod to the 80s in Dressed to Kill - the solo could have come from Big Country or U2.
By hitting so many classic rock buttons the band are sure to gain wide appeal, and why shouldn't they - if I buy a better new release this year I will be a very happy bunny.
The lead singers voice is cross between Caleb Followill (Kings Of Leon) with hints of Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys) with a little bit of Lemmy (Motörhead) thrown in for that gravelly power. It makes for a very distinctive combination. Talking of power this album has it, think Foo Fighter meets Black Sabbath and you'll be along the right lines.
If you've heard the single "Dead Man's Shoes" then you'll know what to expect but don't think for a second that this is one track album, it's far from it. That's what makes this debut so impressive, it's 12 tracks (13 with the hidden track) of power and movement, controlled anger and aggression, heartbreak and tears. But what is really wonderful about this album is that you can tell that this band really enjoy playing their instruments and playing them together. It gives the album its soul.
The Attention Grabber: Dead Man's Shoes
Personal Favourite: Running For My Life
Favourite Vocal Performance: Ends Don't Mend
Special Mention: Stripped (Hidden Track) - Such a wonderfully soulful, delicate song. It shows this band can slow things down and still sound excellent.
Overall: 5/5 Buy It, Buy it NOW!!!
Its a really well designed case, and has a numbered sticker inside.
The CDs are both great, and having the acoustic disc as a bonus is good, as it shows the musicianship of the band more. Decided to go and see the band on tour on the strength of this CD, so they must be doing something right!
Enter the Virginmarys.
I hadn't heard of the Virginmarys until I saw them support Feeder in November last year and I was blown away. You know how it is when you go to gigs, sometimes the support bands are okay, sometimes they are bloody awful but on occasion you come across a band or an artist that knocks your socks off and the Virginmarys are such a band. They opened with Bang Bang Bang and it was one of those jaw dropping "wow, this is amazing" moments. It's been such a long time since I've been so impressed by a band - their dynamic on stage, the vocals of Ally Dickaty, the drummer totally beating the crap out of the drums, you could tell it was a pleasure for them to be playing and they were simply spectacular. I got the two EP's they were selling after they finished playing and looked forward to the release of the album.
A few months later King of Conflict is released. It is perfection.
It's the best album I've heard in such a long time and most definitely the best debut I've heard in years.Read more ›

This album takes me back to when British rock was great. The leads voice is rustic with a bluesy tone. The guys are energenic and put on a great gig. Read morePublished 20 months ago by mr kw neale
