Palace Revolution Upend their "Kingdom"

Odd Nugget Social-done

Exultant derision of the world's less-than-laudible leaders collides with all the alt. rock and grunge of a sonic hurricane in Palace Revolution's "Kingdom".

Guitar and drums, drums and vocals, vocals and energy...


Two suns. Day and day again. You're here to stay again.

Swim in sunlight, you do and don't deny it. On fire.

The sun is your reflection. It boils you alive. Your empire has ignited.


The vocals in "Kingdom" ring reminiscent of System of a Down's Serj Tankian crossed with Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder. There's a strong melodic constituent driving them out and over the gritty guitars and drums.

Esoteric, minor key melody makes this heavy grunge assault a memorable one. The sound is vaguely eastern and intensely enjoyable. Coupled with a wealth of dynamic rhythm shifts, "Kingdom" embarks on a journey throughout its 4:34 minutes to a distant horizon of fading sounds.

As the song comes to its end, an abstract piano and chimes outro escorts our spent senses to a peaceful place. Out of the storm...

This one's a definite must-listen, so listen, you must.
