Last fall Jeff Young stopped by for an EXCLUSIVE interview at Ghost Cult where broke the news that the band was recording an EP of originals. The material was being recorded at a North Hollywood studio previously used by legendary producer Eddie Kramer (Jimi Hendrix). As for the musical direction of Kings Of Thrash’s original material, Jeff said: “It’s got the vibe of Megadeth — it’s on that playing field, but it’s got all of its own stuff and all of our influences and some Soundgarden/Tool vibes in maybe the music and melodies.”
