KING BASTARD's debut album ‘It Came from the Void’ follows the journey of a group of cosmic colonists by invoking a synesthetic experience: the journey begins on suffering Earth and quickly ascends into the cosmos, bringing visions of disaster and human failure. Melding 70’s sci-fi horror imagery with a modern doom sound that incorporates synths, percussions, saxophone, violin and viola, ‘It Came from the Void’ plays with contrasts: it is trippy yet skull-crushing, infectious yet repulsive, as proven by their latest video "Black Hole Viscera". The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice) at Thousand Caves studio in Queens, NY. The artwork was created by Intuitive Designs.

It took only one fateful moment of 2018 in Stony Brook University to make planets align and the passion of Izzy Guido (synth), Arthur Erb (bass), and Mike Verni (guitar) coalesce to create the fearless and gargantuan beast that would soon be known as KING BASTARD. While their initial drummer couldn’t cope with the crushing force of the threesome’s cosmic convergence, the arrival of drummer Matt Ryan behind the kit finalized the sealing of their sonic oath.

After a run of demo tapes including “Have You Seen This Man?” and “Live at the Haunted Barn”, the foursome took to Menegroth, the Thousand Caves studio in Queens, NY to record their debut full-length ‘It Came from the Void’ with the legendary Colin Marston - a collaboration that was benevolently encouraged by Mike’s uncle, Darren Verni of Unearthly Trance. The six tracks were recorded live in one weekend, as KING BASTARD knew exactly where they wanted to take their sound: a fusion of traditional doom riffs with experimental psychedelic jams. The following year was spent honing the smallest details, from tracking synths and guitar leads, to adding percussions, saxophone, violin and viola, adding that unearthly vibe that makes their music stand out from the pack.
