What's not to like when you have Sabbath groove, a Deep Purple guitar section and notable vocals to finish off.

There is something you would not believe about King Of The North when you first hear this album, the fact that it is a two-member band consisting of Andrew Higgs on vocals and guitar with Steve Tyssen on drums and backing vocals. They have accomplished together something that is loud, groovacious, bold and jam-packed to the point of bursting. That is something that even some five-piece bands can struggle with.

It's multi-layered with a variety of different Rock sub genres; Stoner, Hard Rock, Blues and Alternative Rock. There are times where this is so "on point" and they have got that concoction perfect, examples being 'Burn', 'Love Like Fire' and 'Rise'.

'Rise', being the opening track, always sets the precedence for the album. This sends the message of Queens Of The Stone Age meets Muse. The bass has such a deep-rooted groove, it's intense and immerses the listener. The guitar effects are true to early Muse in that they are so unconventional. '...Fire' explores dirty Blues riffs that can only be a strong influence of Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple. The gritty vocal line from Higgs is a great addition to the guitar, complementing it well.

'Burn' is the finest track on the record. The grooves are so satisfying its reaches that hard to get to itch with vocals that are powerful and impressive. The jam section towards the end of the track has an almost Hardcore riff, but it's not quite that aggressive. The rhythm is certainly the forefront of this track as it is for many on the record giving it that Stone Rock brand.

There are a few songs with layered sub genres that do stick out like a sore thumb. 'Ride Like You're Free' has a DP guitar section with a heavy old-school Punk melody, it sounds disjointed with two opposing genres that shouldn't be together.

'Get Out of Your World' is a record with a mixed amalgamation of Zeppelin, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, QOTSA and Audioslave. There is a lot going on and it can get repetitive, but what's not to like when you have Sabbath groove, a Deep Purple guitar section and notable vocals to finish off.
