The power of hard rock and heavy metal is filtered through Beatles-inspired pop melodies and technically proficient progressive rock chops; thoughtful lyrics also separate King’s X from others. The band took shape in the college town of Springfield, MO. King’s X built up its reputation through relentless touring and relocated to Houston, TX, in 1985 after being offered a recording contract, but the deal fell through. The 1988 debut album Out Of The Silent Planet earned rave reviews. Gretchen Goes To Nebraska appeared the following year and MTV put the video for the single “Over My Head” into rotation; in fact, it was among the channel’s Top 10 requests for many weeks. Subsequent albums include Faith Hope Love, King’s X, Dogman, Ear Candy, Tapehead, Please Come Home … Mr. Bulbous, Manic Moonlight and the collection Best Of King’s X. Pinnick, Tabor and Gaskill have enjoyed significant radio airplay too; “It’s Love” hit # 3 on the U.S. FM radio charts (and the video earned heavy rotation on MTV), “Black Flag” went to # 4 on those same charts and “Dogman” earned regular radio spins as well.
