  KXM TO RELEASE SELF-TITLED DEBUT ON MARCH 11th VIA RAT PAK RECORDS
9 February 2014



house of x
A new musical force to be reckoned with is about to turn the rock world upside down with the release of their self-titled debut, KXM, set for release on March 11th via Rat Pak Records.

KXM is comprised of dUg Pinnick of King's X on vocals/bass, George Lynch of Lynch Mob/Dokken on guitars and Korn's drum maestro, Ray Luzier, to round out the powerhouse trio.

The band takes its name from the combination of the member's other projects.

KXM formed in early 2013 when dUg, George and Ray spoke about trying to jam together. At the time it wasn't clear what would come from those jams. The only thing that was clear was that these 3 musicians at the top of their game wanted to play together.

The self-titled debut, KXM, was born from those jam sessions and is now an important piece in each band member's musical legacy. The band are launching a pre-order today for the new release on their label's website, http://www.RatPakRecords.com/KXM.

The album is available in various bundles, including signed CDs, CDs and T-shirts and even a phone call from a band member with certain purchases.

The album was produced by KXM and Chris Collier, who is known for his work with Lynch Mob, Lita Ford and Tommy Bolin to name a few.

The self-titled debut of KXM is something truly unique and special. The songs are powerful, precise, and transcend beyond the boundaries of the imagination. In today's overpopulated music arena, true gems become harder and harder to find, but KXM's unified vision rises above the normal and creates its own space.

From the opening drum riff of 'Stars' to final chord on 'Human Friction', KXM is an album that is sure to resonate with fans from the band's original projects while garnering new ones as well.

Songs like 'Gun Fight', 'Faith Is A Room' and the first single 'Rescue Me' are sure to be instant favorites among fans. The band shows their softer side on the ballad 'Never Stop' along with their dark side on the tale of domestic violence, 'Sleep.'

A trailer for the album can be seen here:

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
