Product description

Product Description

The buzz is already building and finally Roadrunner Records can announce the details of the hugely anticipated debut album from Flint, Michigan’s KING 810. Flint, MI, the forgotten city, is where KING 810 call home and it’s the dystopian dwelling that sets the back drop for the band’s debut LP, Memoirs of a Murderer. With no mayor to preside over the bereft community and a miniscule police force, Flint, MI teaches its young to fend for themselves. Memoirs of a Murderer is an embodiment of KING 810’s life within this pressure cooker, a glimpse into the personal account of this disappearing metropolis where tree branches live longer than the children do. Cut to a crackling old tape recorder, singer David Gunn's narrative eclipses three distinct movements, traveling from a very real place down a rabbit hole into the abstract. The three movements align with Freud's psychoanalytic theory of personality, in which the three elements of personality - known as the id, the ego and the superego - work together to create complex human behaviors. It’s a striking and important body of work from the newest members of the Roadrunner Records roster – the album is the embodiment of (David Gunn’s) life within the pressure cooker of Flint, MI, fired by Gunn’s brutally honest narratives and starkly poetic lyricism. Memoirs of a Murderer sees Gunn confronting the violence that plagues the streets of Flint, perfectly capturing the despair that infects the lives of those who reside in the belly of the beast. Memoirs of a Murderer is a remarkable journey through the post-millennial American wasteland, terrifying, tragic, and ultimately transcendent.

Following in the path laid by nu metal pioneers Slipknot and Korn, Memoirs of a Murderer is a polished, perfectly written album, with addictive choruses and powerful verses, but it would be neglectful to simply call it 'another good album'. From its pre-album releases it was clear King 810 would be a force to be reckoned with, and as the lyrics of their lives show, they have more than tested that mettle, making this not just a concept album based on far-off experiences they know nothing of, but instead a gritty and tangible work, in every way perfect. There is anger here, of an intensity rarely so convincingly demonstrated by sound alone, and sadness, for a world that cannot help but destroy itself, and these are aptly written into acoustic ballads such as 'Devil Don't Cry' and 'State Of Nature' and hateful anthems such as 'War Outside' and 'Killem All', plus one of the most thought-provoking tracks I've ever witnessed, 'Write About Us'. In all, it is a complex and devoted album, written so immersively and intelligently that the horrors spoken therein cannot help but be felt as if the listener has, indeed, been a part of that life.

This is an excellent album, original, deep and some great songwriting. There is definitely a slipknot influence and the slows songs complement the heavy songs although the couple of spoken songs go on a bit too long.

What to say, well this band just cant be explained. If you like heavy then you will love this. It is such a good morning album to get fired up on the drive to work. I really dislike the few "spoken word" tracks on the album but they are forgivable for the rest of the album is just brutal

This is a beautiful album, aching with melancholy pain and poetry. Reminiscent at times of Tom Waites and Patti Smith. Shocking in it's explicit violence and longing for Redemption. A heartbreaker.

Good album. Interesting production. So while there are some derivative bits it has a new feel. The topics are dark but presented well and paint a picture of youth trapped in a culture. Does it glorify that culture well that depends on your view. If you take it like a painting of the way it is you can argue it just reflects the environment it came from. If you just take the attitude then yes it’s a problem.

I had no idea what this would be like when I got it. It was an eye opener to a culture I am nowhere near.

It is good. As an aside the band are OK live but the songs and brooding came over better on the album.

King 810 were such a breath of fresh air when I first found them and they haven't stopped in creating incredible music. This album is a deep, semi disturbing, and scarring set of memoirs in song form about the groups experiences growing up in Flint, Michigan. Learn about the history of Flint in your own time and this album takes on a whole new level of intensity.

Amazing. Most innovative, original metal album I've heard in years. Full of powerful lyrics and killer guitar riffs. David Gunn's voice has to be one of the sexiest it has been my pleasure to listen to and combined with his edgy breathing it hits like a hammer. Listened to it non-stop since I bought it. Love it. Hope they hurry with the second album.

If it wasn't for the blatant use of the whole gang gimmick used to market King 810, this would be a ***** review. The songs are strong both musically and lyrically, and Dave Gunn sings every word like he means it. This is a really heavy album, with some really standout tracks. It's worth a listen.
