Ares Kingdom’s long awaited sophomore album, Incendiary, has been released by Nuclear War Now Productions on CD, LP and picture LP in January 2010. It was recorded, produced, mixed and mastered at the band’s own Very Metal Sound studio in Kansas City.
As uncompromising defenders of the faith, Ares Kingdom’s music is built on the foundations of classic heavy, thrash and death metal, while at the same time transcending simple categorization. Influnces range from Slaughter Lord and Mefisto to Judas Priest.
Lyrically the album’s synthesis of contemporary and historical subjects and ideas represents an inspiring declaration for the Individual against complacency, dogmatism and cloven-hoofed flock ignorance.
Incendiary CDs include a 16-page booklet with a variety of historical artwork reflecting the theme of each song’s lyrics. Regular vinyl versions of Incendiary include a giant 8-page lyric booklet and poster. A special ‘die hard’ edition includes a picture LP, plus the gatefold jacket and inner sleeve from the regular version, as well as a back patch and sticker featuring artwork from the layout, all encased in a custom slipcase.
