Lance King is world renowned in the underground as a melodic metal vocalist, singing on over 25 worldwide releases over the last 21 years. This fact is impressive in itself, but what is truly special about Lance is his ability to morph his voice to fit any mood and intensity of a song, he’s proved this over the years by adding a very “special something” to every album he has been a part of.
Today Lance King is proud to unveil his brand new website. In conjunction with launch of his new site, Lance is offering a free mp3 download of his song Awakening, which comes from his new album A Moment in Chiros which is available now on Nightmare Records through Sony / Red in North America.
Metal Insider recently sat down with Lance King for an exclusive talk about his new album, as well as being the president and head of Nightmare Records. Lance King spoke at length about A Moment in Chiros and the responsibilities that come with being an artist and a label head at the same time. Check out the interview HERE
On the last day of June, 2011 Lance decided to invite some of his musical friends to co-write songs with him as he ventured into his first solo album. An act of faith only knowing their work, never working with them before in creating music. In just two months, those involved had created an epic masterpiece, quite a feat indeed based on the quality of this release.
In under three months, A Moment In Chiros was mixed and mastered and off to the presses, perhaps the fasted created music in history? This album was meant to be out by 11/11/11 and is destined to stand the test of time.
