King Nine “Death Rattle”

It’s been a hot minute since Scared To Death decimated the Long Island hardcore scene and paved the path for the likes of Incendiary, Jukai, Hangman and countless others to throw the NYC hxc portfolio to the top of the game where it so rightfully belongs. On Death Rattle, the band’s long and overdue follow up to their prolific debut full length, King Nine brings crisp, clear production with plenty of energy and studio flare. If anything, this may be more than what diehards have been waiting for and expecting, but the new anthems are definitely meant to be a diving board for next year’s This Is Hardcore festival and it also wouldn’t be the slightest bit surprising if the band found themselves as direct support to one of the annual festival’s prominent headliners. There’s endless groove and two step opportunities packed throughout, that it’s only a natural place for the dominant hardcore heavyweight. Here’s also hoping a new record for the outfit means the band ventures out of their comfort zone and tours nationally, consistently to get the exposure they desperately deserve, perhaps enabling the guys to finally ditch their day jobs.
