Guest Post: Tour Playlist From Death of Kings

This is what Amos chose.
Hey, everybody! Amos here from Death of Kings, fresh off the road from a killer east coast run supporting our new album, KNEEL BEFORE NONE.

A proper soundtrack for tour is an absolute must, and we thought it might be interesting if we kept a log of all the albums we jammed while we cruised across the country, so here it is!

The band van is my daily vehicle, so with me being the most comfortable behind the wheel I wind up doing most of the driving, and often find myself controlling the tunes, as well.

Lots of old rock, punk and heavy metal stuff this time around, often being influenced by the places we were driving through - jamming King Diamond while we drove through Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville, Dio/Cro-Mags/Anthrax driving across NY and GWAR into Richmond.

We were also fortunate enough to have a working tape deck, so we dedicated an entire day to jamming all the cassettes we brought and picked up on the road.

There's plenty of curve-balls in there (though not as many as I would've liked!) as well as a ton of live albums... so enjoy the tunes - we definitely did!
