Some bands have skillfully chosen names for themselves that almost perfectly evoke the sensations and atmosphere of the music they make, and Pale King are among that number. You could have reached that conclusion from the title track to their new album, Monolith of the Malign, when that song debuted in February, and we have further proof of it today, as we bring you a stream of another song from the album that’s also very well-named: “Ominous Horrors“.
Pale King is a new band, but its members have decades of experience among them. The line-up consists of vocalist Jonny Pettersson (Wombbath, Ashcloud, Henry Kane), guitarist Håkan Stuvemark (Wombbath), drummer Jon Rudin (Ashcloud), and bassist Hannah Gill. All that experience shows, and shines, in the music of this album.
