King's X

Wikipedia says about this band:
King's X is a critically acclaimed American hard rock band noted for its sophisticated music that combines progressive metal, grunge, funk and soul with vocal arrangements influenced by gospel, blues, and British Invasion pop groups.
apart from the "grunge" I agree!

I definitely hate grunge, while I really enjoy this band which I discovered lately, and I don't hear any grunge influence in their music.

I'm listening to some of their records and they are really powerful!

I actually already knew some songs from Faith Hope Love (1990) and I already liked them, but also the other records are really pleasant to hear.

Moreover, I remember that I liked the singer Doug Pinnic (who also plays bass in the band) in the song "Lines in the sand" by Dream Theater where he appeared as a guest singer. Now probably I also understand better the choice of having him as a guest star: many songs of King's X remind me of Dream Theater style!

If you like power rock/metal, take a listen to this band!

Hope you enjoy it as I'm doing right now :-)
