Philly dynamic duo King Azaz is an explosion of punk catharsis, a guitar-and-drum ensemble that crawls through the wreckage and debris of the aftermath of Generation X lethargy colliding with millennial frustrations of a future lost. Christo (gutiar/vox) and Sarah (drums) beat a path to the still-beating, still rebellious, still longing hearts of burnouts, cynics, and jaded, desperate punks clamoring for sonic guidance-- a generation that missed out on the open-carry Doc Martens and flannel nihilism of the no-future, a generation that had to raise itself on mall emo and Avril Lavine mp3s. If their past records,Tunnels andSpirit Mundi were explorations in and heavy homages to ‘90’s grunge and noise-rock, withForever Green the band has simultaneously expanded (on songs like “Paulie”, with its lulling rhythmic dreaminess) and imploded (with tracks like “Let Yourself Out”, a caustic, blazing siren-wail of a post-punk burner) spiky haired and wide-eyed ideas. 

Forever Green is a record with a primal edge that would have wormed its way onto a CMJ Showcase. Reshaped from bits and pieces of lost songs in concert with new songs written from 2015-2020, and with a bluesy urgency that re-imagines King Azaz with a propulsive, crashing sound. Sarah’s drumming is precise, yet roiling blasts of entropy, and Christo’s heavenly guitar tone, and tumultuous earworm riffs provide the perfect layers for their vocals-- an impassioned cadence that mixes up stadium rock exuberance with basement show pathos in a 120 Minutes centrifuge. The songwriting is defiant and assured, pastoral and yet wrought with the grime of their city, a tree emerging from glass and razor strewn concrete,Forever Green.
