KINGDOM OF GIANTS – “Damaged Goods” Guitar Playthrough

Hot-damn, check out the sick looking ‘tiger stripe’ flamed top on that Jackson HT7.

For those that don’t know, Kingdom of Giants are a modern melodic Metalcore band from NorCal. They’ve got a new album, All The Hell You’ve Got To Spare, coming out real soon. So, their guitarist, Max Bremer was kind enough to give us this playthrough as a lil’ taste of their new stuff.

The song “Damaged Goods” is a perfect example of their new sound. It’s got this distinct Nu-Metal influenced Djent-core feel, sitting somewhere between Linkin Park, or POD, and Northlane.

Their old style was squarely in the Parkway Drive oceancore riff realm, with some floppy-string breakdowns and ‘singy’ choruses sprinkled in. However, it sounds like they’ve stepped outside their lane with this new album and taken a few more chances.

Though, they’ve definitely kept some echoes of melodic Metalcore in the music. A few of the guitar parts, like the neat little arpeggio lead sections in the song there, wouldn’t be out of place in their older stuff. But overall they’ve de-riffed, simplified and ended up with some sick vibed-out guitar grooves in this one.

You can’t go wrong with skulls on an album cover.

The latest Kingdom of Giants album, All The Hell You’ve Got To Spare, comes out on May 5th via InVogue Records. Head over to their webstore and pick yourself up a pre-order with some steeze on the side.
