Alcatraz Line up: 2017, 2021
Belgian stoner metal is alive! When H8000 pioneer Joost Noyelle aka Josh Fury, guitarist for straight edge bands Congress and Liar, is done creating music honoring the likes of Slayer, he turns to the stoner rock sound of COC en Fu Manchu. After some messing around under the band name ‘Man’s Ruin’, he teams up with stoner soulmate and singer Jan Coudron to form King Hiss. EP “Snakeskin” and debut album “Sadlands” were well received, but new album “Mastosaurus” is the true step forward, showcasing some tight riffs and powerful songs, putting the King Hiss sound more towards Gojira than Kyuss. Let it be clear, King Hiss isn’t your average stoner rock band and we sure that we haven’t seen the last of them! This band rocks!
