King's X is an American rock band that combines progressive metal, funk and soul with vocal arrangements influenced by gospel, blues, and British Invasion rock groups. The band's lyrics are largely based on the members' struggles with religion and self-acceptance. King's X was ranked No. 83 on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock.

Since being signed to Megaforce Records in 1987, King's X has released twelve studio albums, two official live albums, and several independent releases. The band's most recent studio album, XV, was released in 2008 on the InsideOut Music label. Since leaving Atlantic Records, following the release of Ear Candy in 1996, King's X has released albums through Metal Blade Records, InsideOut Music and independently. Each member of the group has recorded several solo albums and have made numerous guest appearances on other artists' albums, as well as participated in numerous compilation projects. Doug Pinnick and Ty Tabor also have many albums released with side bands in which they participate.

Early in their major label career the band secured opening slots on arena tours, including opening for bands like Iron Maiden, AC/DC, Scorpions, Pearl Jam and Mötley Crüe as well as the Woodstock '94 festival. To this day, they continue to tour and perform live.
The spiritual nature of the band's lyrics, particularly on their first four albums, has often led to them being labeled a Christian rock band, a label the members have rejected.
Modern Primitives
Modern Primitives
Modern Primitives have been growling around the Charlotte scene since 2011, honing their techniques by focusing on their prolific live performances. Their sound is a premium blend of loose psychedelia, wild rock, and just the right amount of boozy, hungover blues. These personalities work as one, culminating in the smirking, melted madness between garage glam and psych-rock.

As their name suggests, Modern Primitives have an aware unpretentiousness, yet have shared the stage with bands such as Of Montreal, Clear Plastic Masks, Mona, Miniature Tigers, and The Melvins. They're the common man working out the wonders of life through good ol'fashioned rock'n'roll, and who in these times can't relate to opening up a cheap beer and having a few laughs?

Guitarist Travis Phillips carves intricate grooves that delicately balance raggedy unsophistication with an endearingly classic style, cleverly mimicking the duality of the iconic America plain white t-shirt he's normally seen in. Subtle and patient, drummer Phillip Gripper reins in each careening note, driving fastidiously through the dangerous, winding tracks. These days the Modern Primitives are taking their music up a notch with the acquisition of their newest member, bassist Tim Nhu. The addition of Nhu's talents has quickly provided the band with a newfound definition and platform for songs to lurch off of. With this new confidence, the Modern Prims have put out their first music video 'Lay with the Dead', a demented dance with the devil himself accented by fuzzed-out chords, sneering vocals and just the right amount of creepiness.
