CHERRY RED RECORDS UK have just released KING’S X “The Atlantic Recordings 1988-1995” 6 CD Box Set 

The box set contains six albums from Missouri trio King’s X from their Megaforce and Atlantic Records releases from 1988 onwards. Includes bonus tracks and individual CD sleeves. Their CS Lewis-inspired debut “Out Of The Silent Planet” from 1988 introduced a hard rock sound fused with elements of psychedelia, funk, soul and gospel, becoming an important influence on the development of progressive metal, alternative rock and even grunge. Critical acclaim followed; especially in the UK through the support of magazine’s such as Kerrang!.

Although not strictly speaking a Christian Rock band, their records featured on Billboard’s Christian music chart, and their 1989 conceptual second record “Gretchen Goes To Nebraska” features themes of faith and spirituality. The prolific band released their third record in three years with 1990’s “Faith Hope Love”, their first to break into the all important Billboard Hot 100. Moving from Megaforce to parent label Atlantic in 1992, the self-titled “King’s X” sported a darker and more introspective sound than before and was their last to be producer by long time collaborator Sam Taylor. Employing producer Brendan O’Brien (Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam), King’s X switched to a heavier sound with 1994’s “Dogman”. Live versions of “Shoes” and “We Were Born to Be Loved” are included as bonus tracks. Housed in a psychedelic cover design, 1996’s “Ear Candy”, produced with Arnold Lanni, was King’s X’s sixth album and final record for Atlantic before switching to Metal Blade records.
