Today, we have the pleasure of featuring A Fitting Revenge, a promising progressive death metal band hailing from Rochester, New York, USA. In this review, we will explore their dynamic song, "The Kingmachine," delving into its character, style, story, potential, and more.

I recently discovered A Fitting Revenge, a band brimming with promise, through their captivating single, "The Kingmachine," released in 2020. Their musical journey began with the release of their debut album, "Tempus Fugit," in 2017, followed by three more singles, including "The Inquisition" (2020), "The Kingmachine" (2017), and "The Infinite" (2020). I invite you to listen to the song as we embark on a comprehensive review.

"The Kingmachine" stands as a resounding success, showcasing a wealth of creative and progressive elements with a modern approach. It is worth noting that I refer to them as a "progressive band" rather than simply labeling them as metalcore or deathcore due to the diversity inherent in their music. While they share certain similarities with countless metalcore/deathcore bands, the melodic foundations in their music imbue this song with a greater sense of meaning. They skillfully blend progressive elements within a contemporary metalcore framework, demonstrating immense potential.

From the outset, the song captivates with its enthralling narrative, maintaining its gripping momentum until the very end. Personally, I found the dynamics of "The Kingmachine" to be its most commendable aspect. The composition strikes a beautiful balance, neither excessively intricate nor overly simplistic. While the aggressive and attacking verse sections are characteristic of the genre, the instrumentation is rich, transcending the confines of traditional djent bands. It encompasses much more.

Moreover, the overall atmosphere exudes darkness and melancholy, immediately immersing the listener in its intricate world, leaving an indelible mark on the memory. At times, I discerned echoes of John Petrucci's influence, particularly in the guitar parts, reminiscent of the progressive metal prowess of Dream Theater. In summary, considering their relatively short three-year existence as a band, "The Kingmachine" is an impressive work that solidifies their foundations. I am confident that they will continue to evolve and refine their craft.

From a technical standpoint, "The Kingmachine" upholds commendable standards in every aspect. It may lean towards a more modern and electronic sound, which may not resonate with fans of a more old-school sound. As a devoted fan of traditional-sounding music myself, I can understand the sentiment. However, I must acknowledge that "The Kingmachine" offers a deeply satisfying listening experience. As previously mentioned, the track's dynamics are nothing short of phenomenal, with its energy alone warranting the attention of our readership.

Taking all of these aspects into consideration, I hold a positive outlook for A Fitting Revenge. They are a creative, intelligent, and skilled group of musicians who possess a profound understanding of their craft, positioning them to become a significant force in the future.
