ONE KING DOWN REISSUE CLASSIC BLOODLUST REVENGE EP WITH EQUAL VISION RECORDS!

PRE-ORDER BLOODLUST REVENGE

LISTEN TO “MORE HATE THAN FEAR” (Remastered)

The metallic hardcore group, One King Down, formed in the early 1990’s and quickly garnered a large regional following with a sound reminiscent of contemporary bands like  Snapcase and Earth Crisis. Originally formed by a brotherly tandem, bassist Bill Scoville and guitarist Mike Scoville, along with guitarist Matt Wood and drummer Derrick Van Wie, One King Down was eventually joined by the energetic vocalist Rob Fusco, who penned their Equal Vision Records debut, Bloodlust Revenge around his vegan and straightedge lifestyle. Following the release of the EP in 1997, the band carried their message worldwide, touring with Hatebreed, Earth Crisis, VOD, and Sick Of It All, solidifying their mark on the international hardcore scene.

Even after twenty years the themes of mass drug use and society’s apathetic inability to help itself still ring true in Fusco’s lyrics. Coupled with the band’s stop-and-go rhythms and dancefloor-moving, heavy groove the band’s influence can still be heard echoing in today’s metalcore revival. Bloodlust Revenge, regarded by most fans as the band’s finest recorded hour, is now repackaged and remastered to be released December 15th on Equal Vision Records.

      Tracklist:
