KING'S X XV Inside Out (2008)

King's X

New album from this funk metal outfit, and their fifteenth as the title suggests.

For a three piece, you get some great work here.

And this is full on funk metal. Not as chart oriented as RHCP, not as soulful as Glenn Hughes, you get a fine groove with great melodies, driving rhythms and tough guitars.

Opened "Pray" sets the scene well, the bass driving a rhythm while the guitar adds some very fine touches that range from finesse to full on metal.

"Blue" is a slower and smoother track, but still rough enough with a haunting groove.

You get a range of grooves here, with guitarist Ty Tabor, bassist Doug Pinnick and drummer Jerry Gaskill sharing vocals.

Some songs are short and sweet, others are more adventurous and unpredictable, so over the 14 songs there's enough to keep you.

From the mellow acoustic of "Julie" to driving rock of "Alright", it's a good set.
