KINGS OF DUST - "Kings Of Dust" (2020)

Recommended Posts



The official lyric video for the song "Like An Ocean" from Phoenix-based retro rockers KINGS OF DUST can be seen below. The track is taken from the band's self-titled debut album, which will be released on March 13 via Shock Records/Vanity Music Group.

KINGS OF DUST is comprised of BADLANDS bassist Greg Chaisson, onetime RED DRAGON CARTEL frontman Michael Thomas Beck, lead guitarist Ryan McKay from the CRASH STREET KIDS and drummer Jimi Taft from local legends SURGICAL STEEL. The bandmembers find themselves rooted in mid-'70s-era classic rock, recalling the likes of DEEP PURPLE, HUMBLE PIE, BAD COMPANY and LED ZEPPELIN.

Chaisson states about the band's approach: "There are some really great bands out there right now with that '70s-style sound. But KINGS OF DUST is first-generation stuff. We were all there when it was a 'sound' the first time around, so I think it's very authentic, seeing as this is what we grew up listening to."

Recorded throughout the spring and summer of 2019 and mixed this fall at SoundVision Recording in Mesa in Mesa, Arizona, "Kings Of Dust" was produced by Chaisson and mixed by Beck and mastered by by Brad Vance (RAINBOW, GRAHAM BONNET) at Red Mastering.

The album isn't your run-of-the-mill collection of three-chord-based love songs and standing-up-to-the man-type anthems. Beck says: "The song subjects vary from parents teaching their kids the rules of life to not letting your emotions get the best of you. Positive messages brought to life by a veteran group of musicians who don't abide by the three-chord rock theory."

    • Yeah, I mean I don't know if the cop who had his knee on the the guys neck was senior to the otehr cops? Regardless, they didn't know the force that was being applied to the neck, and it seems to be some kind of standard tacktic in arresting some people to make that move. As for racism, events like this make me realise just how racist my country isn't. I mean we have our aboriginal rights etc, and accusations from time to time of racism on public transport etc, usually coming from lower social economic people. But we are a very multicultural society here, and seem to be quite accepting. Of course tehre are the usual comments from time to time, some passive in jokes, others not so passive and innocent (usually from the older generation, or from the crowd who have the southern cross tattoos on their legs) As I said earlier, hard to comment on US stuff, and I'm sure the degree of racism varies from state to state and area to area within each state. but John Corabi spelled ot a pretty fair stance on what is going on over theren a Facebook post. Hard to equate rioting, looting , shootings, etc etc toany kind of reasonable protest, and all it does is direct attention away from the original issue.
    • Angry Again - Megadeth
    • It is on iTunes too Glen - at least it’s different to the one Frontiers posted. They have it opening with Love Of My Life but on media platforms it seems to be Breakout..
    • anyone notice the track listing order is completely different on Amazon 
    • I stand corrected.

    • Well, it wasn't that long ago that we had the "Yellow Vest" riots in Paris. They were full on riots, but I don't remember hearing reports of widespread looting. Maybe there's footage of gangs of Frenchmen running out of bakeries loaded up with baguettes and croissants, but I didn't see it.
