about

The Debut Full Length Album.
Released on Friday the 13th, April 2018.

'Their ability to take hard blues rock and twist and distort it into darker, more unique territories is akin to that of Queens of the Stone Age'. The Ugly Kings' brand of power blues is captivating'. - Classic Rock Magazine, June 2018 Issue.

'This top-drawer record moves majestically while bar hopping between a plethora of artists and genres including Purple, Danzig, Jack White and everything in between.' - OriginalRock

'Darkness Is My Home is pure uncompromising temptation, one as dynamic as it is seductive and as cinematic as it is intimately haunting.'
'..quite simply glorious, a rousing beacon among already a host of great and powerful heavy rock releases.' - RingMaster Review

'This is rock’n’roll that strides purposefully to the stage, stares you down and lets the ringing notes echo about the room before launching into a neck-straining groove fest of defiant sorrow.'
'Mean, lean and pristine…' - More Fuzz

'..there’s Deep South blues feel permeating every track with a genuine gritty edge to rifflord Christos’ playing and the soulful tone of vocalist Rusty’s voice ..showing with these nine tracks their talent not only as skilled songwriters but, like Bowie, as excellent interpreters.' - Loud Mag

'Imagine the perfect intersection of Black Sabbath riffs and the most thunderous modern tones of Arctic Monkeys and that’s exactly what you hear when spinning this The Ugly Kings powerful album, an energized blues rock full of fresh attitude perfectly driven by the baritone vocals and the crispy but clear fuzz. Coming from Australia and delivering strong original tracks and a masterful cover of Bowie’s Lazarus, Darkness Is My Home is hot and intense immediately taking you to the most arid landscapes of their own outback for a fast drive in the orange sand tracks with a bitter taste of nicotine and whiskey in the mouth.' @witches.at.black.masses
