*****

The Kings of Hammerfest are here!!!

King Creature the Cornish quartet has certainly jumped up the ranks in leaps and bounds since supporting the mighty Motorhead at the Eden Sessions in 2015.

The band have recorded their debut album at the famous Abbey Road Studios, 'King Creature - Volume One' is due out late May / early June 2017. The band have recently signed with Marshall Records, a company setup to showcase the finest artists endorsed by the renowned Marshall Amplification.

Opening with a blistering rendition of 'Wrath', one for the fans of the classic duel guitar sound, guitarists Matt K Vincent and Dave 'Ev' Evans compliment each others styles brilliantly. Dave Kellaway on bass and lead vocals control his instruments with ease, holding the bass lines solidly, whilst projecting a standout vocal line especially on 'Lowlife', their up-coming single.

The track brings a great crowd response as they are invited to join in with the choral chanting. drummer Jack Sutton Bassett appears to have an in built metronome, as he breaks into the set closer and KC anthem, 'Power'.

The main set drew a sizeable crowd, which grew as they continued to play. The band also played an exclusive acoustic performance for Hard Rock Hell United earlier that afternoon, a nice chilled out affair with an excellent broken down version of 'Lowlife'.

If today's two performances are to go by, King Creature definitely proved they are going to be more than 'King For A Day'.
