Fit For A King (FFAK) have been around since 2011 and have reached several accolades within the heavy metal world as one of metalcore and Christian metal’s hottest bands reaching the upper echelons of the charts with their 2020 album ‘The Path’. This year has the Texan metalcore band returning with their latest album ‘The Hell We Create’.

With ‘The Hell We Create’, FFAK do their best to achieve an overall sound which delicately balances soaring melodic energy with a sharp metallic intensity and whilst ‘The Hell We Create’ does not break any moulds, it is certainly capable of flexing its muscles and hitting hard in parts. This is seen at tracks such as ‘Sink Below’ has some fantastic fast paced skill with some blistering twin-guitar with FFAK not afraid to go toe to toe with August Burns Red, Parkway Drive and We Came As Romans.

Yes, with ‘The Hell We Create’, FFAK don’t do anything new, but the vocals of Ryan Kirby just about keep this album on the map by being both current and memorable. This is delivered through poignant and reflective lyrics which make a rollercoaster ride of tragedy and heroism during the likes of ‘Reaper’ and ‘Times Like This’ which features The Ghost Inside main man Jonathan Vigil.

‘The Hell We Create’ is ten professionally delivered, polished metalcore, there is nothing new but fans of FFAK will undoubtedly take it under it under their wing, but the average punter may just walk on by.

"Fit For A King doing exactly what is expected of them"
