Kyng (@kyngband) is a root heavy metal trio from Los Angeles, California.  Their form of root metal is original as it has slight elements of southern metal, thrash, traditional heavy metal, psychedelic rock, sludge metal, post-hardcore and grunge throughout most of their material.   Band members include Eddie Veliz on vocals and guitar, Tony Castaneda on bass, and drummer Pepe Clarke.  Kyng has made a name for themselves on the underground scene with their combination of solid songwriting, great live shows, and amazing musicianship, especially the furious drumming of Pepe Clarke.  They released their debut album, Trampled Sun, in September of 2011 and began to make a name for themselves as the opening act for Megadeth‘s Countdown to Extinction 20th Anniversary tour in the fall of 2012.  In April of 2014 the band released their second studio album Burn The Serum to rave reviews.
