King Parrot release Nor Is Yours featuring Phil Anselmo. This is the second instalment from the
upcoming EP ‘Holed Up In The Lair’ to be released in full on October 9. The entire EP of 4 tracks was
written and recorded at Anselmo’s – Nodferatu’s Lair in just four days while the band were in Louisiana back in 2017.
Nor Is Yours kicks in with a thrashy punked out vibe throughout the verses with Youngy delivering his trademark screeched out vocals. It flows into a grindy, gritty and straight-up angry chorus, a mood that’s perpetuated with Phil joining in, adding an extra layer of depth and brutality. Both vocalists employ different styles and tonalities creating a super aggressive and intimidating blend. With lyrics such as “Shaved off and obliterated”, “Recognize the blood” and “Fuck Off”, it’s understandable in getting the impression someone is pissed off!
Matt Young from the band states “When we came up with this song, it was distinctly different to anything we had written previously on any of our records. It has an up-tempo groove that reminded me of an AC/DC riff if it was played by a grind or hardcore band. My head was busy trying to write lyrics for the other tracks, and this one through me a curveball. Luckily we had our ol’ mate and one of the most prolific heavy metal vocalists of all time Phil Anselmo lounging around in the studio. He accepted the challenge to write and direct the lyrics and also add some vocals in for good measure. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did writing and recording it.”
King Parrots EP ‘Holed Up In The Lair’ lands on October 9th and will be available through all online platforms. The physical copies of the EP are already over half-way sold out so you’d better be quick.
Pre-sales are up now for the limited run of only 1000 7″ Vinyl pressing available worldwide.
