Singled Out: Fit For a King

Today Fit For a King guitarist Bob Lynge tells us about the song "Hollow King (Sound of the End)" from their forthcoming album "Creation/Destruction," which is set to be released on March 12th. Here is the story:

This was actually the last we song wrote for the record Creation/Destruction. And it is personally one of my favorites. It encompasses a wide range of musical styles. It starts off aggressive and in your face, and weaves in and out of some very melodic parts, and finalizes with a phrase as aggressive just as the beginning.

From the very beginning of the writing process for this song, things went as smoothly as possible. I had written the first 30 seconds of the song instrumentality, and wanted to go ahead and start writing lyrics with Ryan, and then start recording vocals. The music was super fast paced and we were really pleased with the way everything was sounding, so we really wanted to kill it vocally. We decided to have super fast vocals to start the song off ("You've got blood on your hands.") We feel like the vocal patterns are something similar to something that Linkin Park would do. So we were super stoked on that!

The song then courses through some heavier parts that give off a sort of "Meshuggah-ish" vibe, then moves into a more legato part. The music is very drawn out and completely vocally driven ("I will not wait for the flames to consume me..."), then moves on into the pre chorus, which moves smoothly into the chorus.

The chorus in this song is my favorite on the record. Instrumentality, it came together with ease and flows nicely with the rest of the song. The melody came as easily as possible. It was just one of those things that you start randomly humming while you're driving. It just popped in my head one day and it integrated into the song perfectly ("Silence has taken over me... My words are lost and I am giving in.")

Then the rest of the song consists of a handful of aggressive riffs and a pretty nasty breakdown ("This is the price that you pay") up until the bridge and last chorus.

Overall, this song is as hard-hitting and as melodic as we were able to make it. The sound of this song is a perfect representation of what Fit For a King is about. Everything from the heavy riffs, the melodic choruses and the dark message, this is the sound we love making.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about the band and album right here!
