lloydd This recording mixes several genres stoner ,blues, grunge. There is nothing to not like here. From the vocals to the solos and everything in between. A sleeper that keeps getting better with each and every listen. Each song takes you on a different journey. A complex listen. A very enjoyable listen. Update after giving this CD a few spins there is so much more to discover, listen and get lost in the valley of the kings Favorite track: Cactus People.

Angels 05:45
Eve of the garden Serpent leaves his mark Two, enlightened Souls embark Angels Angels spread your wings Tree of knowledge Banished to the street Spirits tarnished From ardor, indiscreet Angels Angels spread your wings Fly to the ether Angels spread your wings Descent into darkness Fallen from grace God, why forsaken? Divinity erased

Petra tribe barren lands Marching through the shifting sands Goddess speaks of ancient seas Where child kings cured all disease Cactus people Raising Steeples Space cathedral Cosmic sequel Cactus people bearing gifts To pilots of crafts so swift From lands beyond the 7th sun Distant stars, time’s undone Cactus people Raising Steeples Space cathedral Cactus people

The Method 05:05
Under your skin Whisper in your ear I know your true fear This can be our little secret No rewards, no sin Just me in the end Not good, nor bad Just the living and the dead No one needs to know Feelings deep inside that grow Accept your fate? You say no I’m in your head until you go No rewards, no sin Just me in the end Not good, nor bad Just the living and the dead No rewards, no sin Just me in the end Not good, nor bad Just the living and the dead

Wake from the nightmare that was never to be true There's time right now to live out loud to get what's coming straight for you Do you believe in fate and what will be has always been? Or is destiny what you create from the moment you begin? I would have to wonder how it ever got this way If there was no way to break out from the chains of yesterday You can’t help but wonder why it all turned out this way Nothing left to do but cry out among remains of yesterday From the chains of… Under reigns of… Lie remains of… Yesterday

Devil 05:56
He arrives taking ransom Came at night for those who owed Came for the poor, and the handsome Gone before sunrise broke the cold You can’t escape The soul taker You can’t escape The un-maker Many a man has tried to bargain Many a man has tried to plea The Devil-man chuckles at desperate folly No one beholden can ever flee You can’t escape The soul taker You can’t escape The un-maker Won’t you spare me Won’t you spare me Release me from… Eternity He arrives taking ransom Came at night for those who owed Came for the poor as well as the handsome Left before sunrise, the morning glow You can’t escape The soul taker You can’t escape The un-maker

Phoenix 05:32
Rising from the pyre Reincarnate life Wings alit afire Freed from the pain and the strife Phoenix – ageless bird of lore Phoenix – to the sky will soar Phoenix – flames ignite the night Phoenix – rise at morning light High above the earth A symbol of revival The bird proclaims rebirth A message of survival Phoenix – ageless bird of lore Phoenix – to the sky will soar Phoenix – flames ignite the night Phoenix – rise at morning light

Scapegoat 03:32
Am I the problem? Am I to blame? Shower me in lies Blanket me in shame Your wealth and power Confronted again Misled the masses A pop mannequin We won’t be your scapegoats We won’t be your fools Acquitted from your judgement Indictment is our fuel Ersatz arraignment Smoke above the din Dishonest leader Truth always wins We won’t be your scapegoats We won’t be your fools Acquitted from your judgement Indictment is our fuel
8.
Another day has come to an end Old memories that may not stay How I long to feel the sun again Always good to know in time our time will find a way Getting into that which you know best May seem the only way to go Let heal a weakened heart that lays to rest If you happen to awake then you can grow While you waste away Always good to know in time our time will find a way Always good to know in time our time will fade away Always good to know in time our time will find a way Always good to know in time our time will fade away If you happen to awake then you can grow - while you waste away If you happen to awake then you can grow - while you waste away If you happen to awake then you can grow - while you waste away If you happen to awake then you can grow - while you waste away

What lies around you might not get Or has it just not hit you yet? You will only know when it arrives Take the time all that you want To find a way to way to carry on As life around you finds a way to die Human beings spread apart In the land of cold and dark Shelter wrapped around your open wounds What you see you just might get Lost among the pending threat Time will tell how much it will consume I don't need to hear about reason Don't ya tell me not to do what I feel The tide will fade away with the season The sun will spin the earth like a wheel If you found a way to bring comfort Then take it to for the ones that you love If you can find the strength in your heart Even underneath the ground you're above Hide with your half-hearted smile Even if it takes a while The space between us one could never own More than a thousand wicked souls Crawl into our gaping holes Some were meant to last when others won't

Reviews – Indus Valley Kings

"Although they’ve drawn comparisons to Kyuss, Corrosion of Conformity, Helmet, and 70s era Black Sabbath, that doesn’t really capture how radio-friendly they’d be in a different age. “Remains of Yesterday,” for example, is a steady headbanger with standout harmonies, and “Devil” rides on a heavy, pulsating attack that eventually erupts into a euphoric guitar solo. Although they’ve certainly drawn inspiration from all of the aforementioned bands, there’s something distinct about their sound that makes them immediately unique but extremely accessible.” monsterriff.com/2021/02/18/indus-valley-kings-album-review-new-music-from-new-york/

“Aficionados of 70's hard rock and heavy blues, devotees of doom and suckers for a bit of stoner/desert grooviness will all find something to sate their appetites on IVK's self-titled debut, the album is a jamboree bag of musical delights that never stops giving.” stonerking1.blogspot.com

“The band puts out a polished album all-around and sound really tight playing together. I have a feeling they’d be a great act to see live. Indus Valley Kings manage to carve out a unique sound for themselves, marking their debut with a solid LP that has immense replay value.” harbingerofdoom1.blogspot.com

“Fans of the hard rock of the 70's and heavy blues, fans of doom but also of stoner and desert rock will all find something to satisfy their appetites in the debut album of IVK, which is full of musical pleasures.” www.musicislifep.com

“Indus Valley Kings is a hard rock band from Long Island, NY. The group recently released their brutal album ‘Indus Valley Kings.’ The album was remarkable and gloomy in the most positive way possible; it was unrestrained, charming, and made me want to turn the volume up as high as it could go.” adiahmichelle.com/album-review-indus-valley-kings/
