Although this is truly weird music, for some reason it sticks with me...Quite creative if nothing else. If anyone has a CD or mp3 of this I would be interested in buying or copying it. Please email qverb@yahoo.com Dont mind my posting date. I'm sure I will still be interested. I have only a copy of a copy of the cassette which truly sucks. Thanks

Different! Listen and tell me!! More than a music, it's a sensation hard rock!!

From: Rycheage Date: January 8, 2003 at 1:06
Different brand of hard rock. Worth a listen to. You could probably find this cheap on eBay.

From: Chung Thing Date: December 12, 2003 at 14:13
I remember reading a spotlight on these guys in Rip Magazine in '90 and apparently they were signed because one of Tesla's guitarist saw them live and was blown away. Lot's of psychadelia mixed with Rush / Yes prog rock for a unique hard hitting album. Desmond's vox have a baritone Jim Morrison quality. The recording is nice and raw, but at times the drummer sounds to be drifting from the click track / tempo. Well worth a listen if you like 2112 era Rush. Wish they would have made a few more...

Weird but yet good.

From: Cap'n Rusty Date: March 13, 2004 at 15:00
This shit slays me! Kevin O'Neil's guitar work makes me want to touch myself.

From: Carl jenkins Date: March 13, 2004 at 18:48
This album sucks on a whole new level. The drummer is awful. That being said you can't say enough about Kevin O neil. Shredtastic. Hebbtacular guitar playing

From: S Date: June 11, 2004 at 15:30
Great... Prog\JazzMetal

From: FHS DAVE Date: June 12, 2004 at 5:12
This cd was so far ahead of its time it was unfortunately overlooked. I went to high school and was a student of Kevin O'neil. I got to see King of Kings in NH CT. I had seen Kevin play many times before. This guy is a genius and down to earth. Don't ever pass up an opportunity to see him play. He made another cd with Anthony Braxton called Sous Rature. Desmond is a hell of a musician and performer as well. I love his voice and perspective. Any know what he or Gus are up to?

grat album love you guys

From: Geoff Date: January 19, 2005 at 3:58
This one certainly gets a good review thus far. I'd hate to mess it up by tearing the album apart, so I'll simply say it was not for me. I personally thought it was a dreadful album in every way shape or form, without even a hint of a decent song... IMO.

From: wow_how_odd Date: February 17, 2005 at 17:18
A) Feeling introspective as of late, I've been googling everyone I've ever known and found this. I can't believe people are talking about King of Kings NOW. How surreal. B) Back in the day, Gus Hart and I were extremely close friends. I have no idea how he's doing now. The last time I saw him was on the N train headed to Ditmars Blvd. and it was something like 1997. I moved out of state. I went to grade school with Desmond, whose name is Kenny. C) Yes, they got signed because of Frank.

Not good at all,weird music without the sense of taste.Aor...where?,hard rock...where?.Grunge...a lot!!!.

From: Nelson Date: January 11, 2009 at 17:54
This is weird beyond weird. Some jazz, some guitar shredding, some hard rock but definitely not grunge. I cannot say that I liked every "song" that I heard in this but I'll surely keep this. Notice the quotations because some are just too weird to be called songs.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 1, 2011 at 22:47
yeah actually i agree about the mix of jazz,prog and psychadelia feel but honestly... ...3 songs only caught my attention..."Seasons Of Eve","Mantra" & "Burning Horn"...the rest...sad...really sad...60/100

From: hair metal again Date: December 11, 2021 at 9:44
pretty good debut for KING OF KINGS back in 91 offering a weird psychedelic hard rock sound with great guitar work and some good tunes but on the other hand sometimes they sound confused and lost in their complicated approach as many prog bands suffer!"seasons of eve","mantra",and "written all over you" are the highlights
