Exclusive interview with Bury The Kingdom
To my readers, please give a warm welcome to the band Bury The Kingdom
1- Hello and welcome to Metal Music Midwest, first off, thanks for taking the time to do the interview, could you give our readers a brief description of the group?
Where is the band from?
Bury The Kingdom is from all over but we work out of Oklahoma USA!
2- “Bury The Kingdom” is the band's first EP, how long did it take to write?
Our songs and the process has been a lifelong journey so that is a commitment of a lot of time. Our EP is a message to the world. Intense music but, a wake up call to the people.
3- What musical influence inspires the bands compositions?
We have many influences but mainly its social issues that drive our lyrical content.
4- The group started in 2021, can you tells us how did you all meet?
We met during the course of playing the scene in our hometown. The shutdown led to us sharing tracks back and forth remotely and the results led to this 4 song EP.
5- The new album title is BURY THE KINGDOM, can you give us details about the content and more in depth meaning to this title?
Bury The Kingdom attacks each toxic entity with stinging lyrics, delivered aggressively (courtesy of Vox), that are straight from the heart. The message is the most important ingredient to the band but the tracks are accompanied by unrelenting rhythms that move the messages forward and will have you banging your head!
In War, the song takes aim at the judicial systems. Too many corrupt judges, shady police officers, bribes and all-out deceit have taken over our system of checks and balances. Unfortunately there is a history of putting innocent people in prison all over the world so this song goes out to all of them. The message is clear and direct. They’ll bring the war straight to your face and they’ll never give up!
The Catholic Church gets the Bury The Kingdom treatment in The Unveiling. This song addresses the lies told by the church and the damage caused by literally hundreds of years of abuse. “That establishment has scarred more lives over its existence than probably any other known to man.”
Force Fed touches on the pharmaceutical companies that knowingly, and with no regard for human lives, allowed entire nations to become dependent on their drugs. Creating scores of drug addicts and deaths in their wake.
6- Each member of this project is part of another band, how do you maintain a good balance working together?
We all come from the same fabric of musical drive and work ethic. That alone makes for a great group of individuals to work with. Its really not work.
7- Have you performed any shows in your area? if so, how receptive and supportive are the people to your music?
We are maintaining an online campaign for our new release “BURY THE KINGDOM” EP. We have had a great response from all over the planet. We are truly grateful.
8- Are there any upcoming shows or tours you can tell us about?
Not at this moment but follow us on all of the platforms for news and changes to our schedule!
9- Thanks for your participation, finally, what is the best way to get a hold of the band, in case someone wants to book or promote the band?
Any final words?
Thanks for having us talk to your viewers!! We are signed to Sliptrick Records so thats the best way to find us and make something happen. We appreciate anyone who would like to spread our music around so please reach out!
The group explain that; “Change needs to take place in multiple ways. It is time to stop turning away from the blatant greed and corruption that has made itself at home all over our planet. The masses have been lied to and manipulated by their governments, by different religions, by corporations and even from the very legal systems installed to protect the average law abiding citizen. The very same laws that were supposed to keep corruption in check have been desecrated.”
