King's X  


With their highly unique blend of traditional metal rhythms and extensive vocal harmonies (often referred to as Beatles-esque), Kings X have carved a nice career for themselves, releasing critically-acclaimed albums, garnering a loyal fan base, but never really approaching superstardom, which is probably just fine with the band. Apart from bands directly influenced by them (for example, Galactic Cowboys), there really isn't anyone who really sounds like Kings X at all, which is quite a notable achievement. The band keeps quite busy, both with touring/recording here as well as numerous solo albums and side projects, among them Platypus (featuring a couple of Dream Theater members), Poundhound, Jelly Jam (another DT collaboration), and Supershine (Doug teaming up with two guys from Trouble).

Current Members

Doug Pinnick
