Time Will Prove 時間證明
This is a statement album - King Ly Chee began in 1999 and has endured through several members coming and going, and surviving in a part of the world where heavy straight-forward music with a message doesn't get the time of day. "Hardcore" is still relatively a new and often-misunderstood style of music. The misunderstanding here is still that as long as a band is heavy and has a screamer, this obviously means it must be "hardcore". True hardcore supporters know the truth...beneath the screaming, deeper down in the heart of the band and band members is where you can uncover what a band is actually all about. Is it all about the music? Or are you using the music to speak your mind about the events that surround you and the world we live in? The message is STILL the most important thing that the members of King Ly Chee hold dear, and STILL consider this the heart of hardcore.
This release is their third release.
Their first full length came out in 2000 and was entitled We Are Who We Are
Their second full length came out in 2003 and was entitled Stand Strong
A massive 8 years later (due to line-up issues) King Ly Chee came kicking and screaming back with this release...their most proudest album to date. 13 songs sung in English, then the vocals were re-recorded in Mandarin! Both versions are featured on this release so you've always wanted to hear hardcore in a different language - here you go! Why the mandarin release? Above the band has stated their view of hardcore - it's nothing without the message. Why lose the message by singing a language that may not be comfortable for people to instantly grasp? Thus, the decision was made to sing in another language.
When King Ly Chee tours in Chinese speaking parts of the world - they sing in Chinese. When they tour in English speaking parts of the world - they sing in English.

1. Andrew of Comeback Kid singing on the song On the Road
