Heavy Metal Kings is a new collaboration album that brings together two of the most critically-acclaimed and commercially-consistent rappers in the independent hip hop scene of the last decade, ILL BILL (Non-Phixion/La Coka Nostra) and Vinnie Paz (Jedi Mind Tricks/Army of the Pharaohs). For years fans have been clamoring for an albums worth of material from these two lyrical beasts, and now it is finally here. The group also just debuted the bone chilling video for the track “Blood Meridian” last week to celebrate the album’s release.

Watch the video for “Blood Meridian”:

Like its name, Heavy Metal Kings displays all the slick, rhythmical timings of hip hop while incorporating the adrenaline and utter desecration of metal with everything from artwork (created by long-time Voivod drummer Away) to arrangement to lyrical structure and imagery. Heavy Metal Kings also features a solid cast of supporting artists, with guest spots from Reef the Lost Cauze, Crypt the Warchild, Slaine, Sabac Red and Q-Unique. Production is handled by DJ Muggs, ILL BILL, Shuko, Sicknature, C-Lance, Grand Finale, Jack of All Trades, Junior Makhno, Vherbal and DJ Premier protégé Gem Crates.
