I love a good collaboration whether it’s a guest vocal, guitar part/solo, etc. More often than not, these collaborations take the song to a whole other level. One song that I heard a while back that I’ve been quite fond of is “Enjoying The End” by Royalty Kult. The combination of Royalty Kult and what guitarist Doc Coyle (God Forbid/Bad Wolves) brings to the table makes this song stand out. The delicate melodies that Doc brings in the beginning sets the tone for the introspective and dark lyrics of vocalist Josh Bauserman. As the song continues, the heavy of the music matches up with intensity of the rest of the song. Royalty Kult is one of the best up and coming bands I’ve heard in a long time.
On Friday May 6, Royalty Kult will be playing at The Federal in North Hollywood as part of Audioeclectica’s Birthday Bash. So make sure you come out and see what all the fuss is about! Tickets HERE!!!!!!!
Royalty Kult (Featuring Doc Coyle)- Enjoying The End:
I always find it to be interesting and cool when a heavy band takes on a more “alternative” sounding bands’ song. A few years back the band God Forbid, while working on their album Earthsblood, took a chance and did a cover of the Muse song “Stockholm Syndrome.” The did they song in their style and made it into quite a cool version. Check it out!!
God Forbid- Stockholm Syndrome:
These days making music with people across the country has been made simple by the internet. The makings of Vagus Nerve started that way, and the end result is something to talk about. After the end of his band God Forbid, guitarist Doc Coyle began putting together the pieces with vocalist Ravi Orr to create music for the purpose of creating passionate music with no restraints or genre guidelines. What they have come up with along with additional input from drummer Moe Watson of Shai Hulud, guitarist Mike Gowen, and Alex Oxenreider on bass, has allowed them to follow their own path. Sonically Vagus Nerve are a rock band with a touch of prog and artistry to help separate them from the pack. Think A Perfect Circle meets Karnivool with a dash of metal. Their debut E.P. Visceral is about to be released and deserves your attention. Vagus Nerve really allows Doc Coyle to shine as a songwriter. Based on the songs “Do You Know Who I Am” and “Pull Me Out,” Vagus Nerve is in the right direction to realizing their full potential.
