Rät King – We Are The Rät King

Jawbreaker Records are proud to introduce Rät King, a brand new heavy/speed metal band from Poland. These guys are young and hungry, something you can clearly hear on their debut EP, simply entitled We Are The Rät King. Limited to 200 copies on double-colored black/white tape.

In terms of biology, a Rat King is a rare, mysterious phenomenon, being a collection of rats whose tails are bound together for unknown reasons, in folklore noted as a bad omen. This polish heavy/speed metal band from Silesian Voivodeship started in late 2020 and have been busy creating original material ever since. The group’s sound is defined by two lead vocalists, grotesque, phantasmagoric lyrics and an overall 80’s vibe, all together making them what they are – a band which pays homage to vintage heavy metal.
