The King Is Blind Release 'Throne Of Skulls' Video

The King Is Blind

(Metal Hammer) The King Is Blind have released a video for their new track "Throne Of Skulls." The song is featured on the forthcoming Speed Kills compilation from Music For Nations which will also feature Akercocke and Voices.

Speaking to Hammer about the new song, The King Is Blind vocalist Steve Tovey says: "Throne Of Skulls is about the danger of demagogues and the cult of celebrity, and how the power, fame and influence-hungry will climb to power over the bones of those who have sinned for their own benefit.

"[It's] the skeletons of those that have normalised today's dog-eat-dog culture, where winner takes all at the complete disregard for the needs of others, or the balance and compassion needed. Where the quasi-fascist dictators rule and ruin the world, sat atop their throne of skulls; the remnants of those they've discarded and screwed over to get there.

"With Throne Of Skulls, we wanted to not only respect and venerate the legacy of the Speed Kills series, but release a standalone worthwhile addition to our own canon that bridges between our first and our upcoming second album, both musically and conceptually," Steve says.

"In keeping with the Speed Kills ethos, Throne Of Skulls allowed us to not only indulge and enjoy our heavy metal side, but sharpen the knives and trim the fat in line with our focus for album two; it's a lean, relentless, concentrated assault." Watch the video here.
