“Formed from the ashes of the 80’s Christian rock band Whitecross is King James, established by guitarist Rex Carroll in the early 90’s. Carroll, who is a two-time winner of the Dove Award as well as a five-time HM Magazine Critic’s Darling for his fierce guitar work, wanted another creative piece in which he could musically develop. Together with vocalist Jimi Bennett (ex-Sacred Fire, Viktor) and Stryper alumni Robert Sweet and Tim Gaines, King James was born and soon inked a deal with Star Song Records to release their eponymous debut in 1993. Four years later, after a long break and regrouping, King James issued the sophomore effort entitled The Fall in 1997. The 2010 Collector’s Edition from Retroactive Records includes a much needed facelift with all new artwork in addition to a full-metal remaster by the amazing J. Powell (Titanic, Final Axe, Bride and Malice). This album was originally released in Europe, then twice in the USA, and they sold so fast that this classic has been out-of-print for almost ten years. That means it’s a great album and there’s demand for it! The music is mean and the guitars are nasty, reminiscent of the aggressive metal of Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Holy Soldier and Black Sabbath. The Fall features a haunting, ponderous sound that sometimes flirts with the sophisticated progressive elegance of Queensryche. It’s definitely a moody, portentous affair, filled with plenty of inspired riffing from Rex and hair-tossed wailing from Jimi!” -Retroactive Records
