Unfortunately, Fit For A King is stuck in a genre that is predictable. So while the album doesn’t bring a shocking amount of new talent to the table, if you like metalcore you’re going to love “Creation|Destruction.”
“Skin & Bones” is one of my favorite tracks on “Creation|Destruction.” While I have a passion for breakdowns, sometimes I like to step back and listen to some calmer tracks. “Skin & Bones” displays that a metalcore band can do something different and show a softer side. They’re playing the game right by appealing to different demographics. We’ve all had a girlfriend or boyfriend who won’t go to shows because they hate that “screamo” crap. But with Fit For A King, they offer a slight diversity with this song that contains only clean vocals.
I’m not a fan of “The Resistance” and “Identity” as the beginning chords and stuttering electronic accents sound almost the exact same and I thought my Spotify was on repeat. While the lyrics Fit For A King wrote continue to target certain demographics, the instrumentals in these two tracks didn’t impress me as much as the rest of the album.
While Fit For A King didn’t deviate from their genre much, “Creation|Destruction” is a solid album that will generate more buzz. I guarantee you’ll be hearing more from them – they’re touring with The Plot In You next month which will increase their fan base even more. Get used to it.
