It’s rare that a band encapsulates that evil rock swagger that has fanned the flames of so many rock greats, yet Kingdust is a band that must be placed on that list. Imagine the diabolic hard rock stomp of Danzig crossing over with the mystically tinged wares of The Cult and the volatile rock ‘n roll spirit of Motorhead joining in for one for the road for an idea to what this quartet delivers. Brawny barrages of uncompromising guitars, muscle car engine rhythms, and vocals that capture Satan’s soulful side might as well be trademarked by this act, as they execute these nuances with an abundance of Southern metal’s boogie and mid-‘90s hard rock bite. Making that menacing rock sound that entrances the creatures of the night isn’t easy, but with songs like the stripper on a pole anthem “My Sweet Satan” and the chugging goodness and soaring melody of “Aces & Eights” in its arsenal, Kingdust sure as hell makes it look that way.
