Biography

New Orleans, United States (2005 – present)

Boasting a line up that includes members of such influential metal bands as Hatebreed, Down, Crowbar, and more, Kingdom of Sorrow has arrived to stake its claim as the band that lives up to its super group status.

The seeds of Kingdom of Sorrow were sown over a decade ago when a 16 year old Hatebreed front man (and avid Crowbar fan) Jamey Jasta introduced himself to Down / Crowbar guitarist Kirk Windstein at a show at Pearl Street in Northampton, Massachusetts.

A short time later Jasta, who actively booked shows throughout New England in the early nineties, put up the cash for an Napalm Death / Crowbar show in order that Hatebreed could play with one of his favorite bands. Ever since, the two have remained in close contact and become the best of friends over the subsequent decade.

Jasta and Hatebreed invited Crowbar out for a UK run of dates in March 2005. It was there that the two friends decided to combine forces on a band based on their mutual affinity for the hallmarks of the genre (Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Pantera) and their history of writing some of the heaviest hitting metal of the past fifteen years.

The duo holed-up in Silver Bullet Studios in Connecticut in May 2005 and once again when Kirk relocated post-Katrina to write and assemble what would become the very first Kingdom of Sorrow album. The first taste of the untitled project surfaced in the form of the epic track “Buried in Black” on Roadrunner Records,’MTV2 Headbangers Ball: The Revenge’ compilation (released April 2006).
