King Woman talks about gear, plays release party on 02.17 at Starline

King Woman talks about gear, plays release party on 02.17 at Starline

If the ground were to one day crack open, and the sounds of Tartarus began to seep out of the earth, I'd like to imagine the hellish cacophony would sound a bit like King Woman. The San Francisco-based four-piece crafts the sort of doom metal that seems to herald the bridging of our dimension and the underworld. Kristina Esfandiari's vocals envelop the band's tracks with the precision of a hushed, siren song, while the band--composed of Colin Gallagher on guitar, Peter Arensdorf on bass and Joey Raygoza on drums--punctuate her ethereal singing with fuzzy, dark soundscapes and angular riffs. On the heels of their soon-to-be-released album, Created in the Image of Suffering, Collin and Peter were kind enough to share their current pedal set ups, and the techniques they used to get the visceral sounds heard on their album. - Olivia Sisinni

Read the interview here, and fon't miss the band live at their new album release party at Starline Social Club on February 17.
