ALL FOR THE KING - DARKEST BEFORE DAWN (CD) 2024 Majestic Swedish Metal ala Narnia & Jerusalem!




All For The King is back with their third full length release entitled ‘Darkest Before The Dawn’. The band has seen critical success early on with their first two releases, and has even been hailed by critics as a “modern day Black Sabbath.” Reviewers across the world have compared Erik Tilling’s guitar work to that of hard rock riff master Tony Iommi, and singer Ricard Hulteke to the legendary Glenn Hughes.

The current lineup is made up of the following seasoned musicians:

Ricard Hulteke – vocals

Erik Tilling - guitar

Andreas Alov - bass

Anders Kollerfors - drums

The bands humble beginnings started in 2016, with the band drawing heavy influences from bands like King’s X and Black Sabbath. Over time, the band has cultivated its own unique mix, fusing classic rock and metal with more modern sounds. One of the tracks on ‘Darkest before the Dawn’ features guest singer Ulf Christiansson, founder and singer of the band Jerusalem.

The bands debut 2017 album garnered rave reviews, such as:

“The songwriting is of such quality, both in terms of heaviness and harmonies, that it might be taken as original material from the musical era that the band was inspired by” (Urban Thoms, Dagen newspaper)

Then once again in 2021 with the bands sophomore release, “Let There Be Light”:

“Listen! I would recommend this to anyone! I love the album! The more you listen to it the better it becomes! It’sjust epic great metal! Love it, love it, love it!” (Leigh Spencer, Iridium Rock and Metal Review)
