Album notes:
Formed in 2017 in the frozen Rockies of Alberta Canada, Kings Rot is a three piece black metal band that blends blazing melodies with crushing aggression that yields an atmosphere of impending doom.

At the Gates of Adversarial Darkness is Kings Rot’s second full-length and certainly a pinnacle of their sound so far. Expanding upon their debut record, “The Shadow of the Accursed” released in 2021, Kings Rot’s sophomore release carries an onslaught of fast-paced melodic black metal with a rich and warm sound rooted in classic black metal. Kings Rot is not a band that focuses on atmospheric flourishes, but rather emphasizes riffs and melody. Dark, fast, and straight to the point, At the Gates of Adversarial Darkness is an album for traditional black metal fans and disciples of the riff.

Mastered by Rolando Rodas/Cavern Of Echoes and with artwork from Misanthropic-Art.
