Formed in 2016 in Evansville, Indiana, members Andrei Stirbu (lead guitar), Kyle Wilcher (drums / lead vocals), Jason Wilcher (rhythm guitar / backing vocals), and Nick Graman (bass), learned together and grew together as a band. Drawing inspiration from their metal forefathers Black Sabbath, Windhand, Conan, Electric Wizard, Sleep, and Kyuss, the band has explored heavier and darker themes throughout their evolution.

Drawing from the depths of gloom, Rat King’s latest endeavor delves into the stark and pallid recesses of the mind and the fallible nature of mankind.

»Omen«’s a largely heavier and more orchestrated body of work than their previous releases, including their debut EP »Barren« (2017). The album is driven by haunting, emotive vocals – an increasingly rare commodity in a metal scene so committed to harsher styles of singing. The low tuning and methodical pace of each track draws the listener into the shadows and holds them to the very last note.

Rat King is:
Kyle Wilcher – Drums, Lead Vocals
Andrei Stirbu – Lead Guitar
Jason Wilcher – Rhythm Guitar, Backing Vocals
Nick Graman – Bass
