King’s X, “Black the Sky”

(Continuing my exploration of the King’s X back catalogue.)

For their fifth studio album, King’s X took a slight turn from their signature progressive, soulful hard rock toward a heavier, more grunge-influenced sound. No doubt this was in part due to hooking up with storied producer Brendan O’Brien (Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, etc.). The result, 1994’s “Dogman” album, is, however, a remarkably successful marriage of the “traditional” King’s X sound with a heavier, more stripped-down approach.
