Chilean / Belgian Epic Doom metallers KING HEAVY present La Gárgola, the first track off their upcoming self-titled, full-length debut album. “La Gárgola” (Spanish for “Gargoyle”) offers a good look at what’s to come when the album is released in early September. This is heavy and epic Doom Metal led by the multifaceted vocals of Luce Vee (Hooded Priest / Witchsmeller Pursuivant), melting into twisted and obscure melodies in the vein of Celtic Frost’s masterpiece Into the Pandemonium.

KING HEAVY is anything but the typical brand of mono-dimensional, superficial Doom Metal. KING HEAVY rocks! Aside from strong elements of CANDLEMASS and of the more traditional Doom Metal sound, KING HEAVY offers epic arrangements and a twisted touch that reminds of BLACK SABBATH’s Born Again, CELTIC FROST’s Into the Pandemonium and the early, darkest side of DANZIG. The album contains seven songs for a total running time of over 47 minutes and was engineered, mixed and mastered by Pablo Clares at DM6 Studio (Chile). Vocals were recorded by Peter Maene at Creative Factory (Belgium).
