South Wales’ King Kraken has created quite a stir since their formation in 2018. Influenced by Clutch, Mastodon and Black Sabbath this five-piece powerhouse of a band has been dominating the hard rock and metal scenes for years – even though they just got together not too long ago.

Setting the metal scene alight in South Wales, The Kraken’s debut rocked audiences with a combination of heavy riffs and melodic flair. Their four-track self-titled EP was released to match their incredible run that culminated in an exciting Bloodstock Metal to the Masses competition final where they earned huge plaudits for their heavy yet melodic riff-based style and confident approach.

After the world threw a curveball in 2020, Kraken regrouped and bounced back with their second record. Working with legendary producer Romesh Dodangoda (Motörhead, Bullet for My Valentine, Bring Me The Horizon), they created an EP jam-packed full of hard rock ranging from heavy metal to more bluesy influences – something both old schoolers and modern fans will appreciate.

King Kraken has been crushing it in 2022!  The ardent “Kraken Army” keeps growing with every show. Now we’re getting closer than ever to hearing what comes next – King Kraken’s highly anticipated debut album “MCLXXX”, due out late January 2023.

To close out their album, the band needed an anthem to get crowds moving and grooving. Green Terror was written in a flash – just two or three weeks! Lyrics designed for head-nodding, catchy choruses people could sing along with: it’s the perfect party track of wild times and good vibes.

Green Terror is currently in the Top-40 Chart on Primordial Radio.

King Kraken – Green Terror Lyrics

Green Terror
Run run my pretty one
Stay away from me
Cos I been down the devil’s town
No escape for me
This deal I had to make
Beneath the fire and ash
Making noise for all these years
Long the fire may last
Make way for the big green terror
Green Terror – Await its beck and call
Green Terror – Arise one and all
Take my soul throw it away
Has no use at all
Well, I feel the power rise from below
Praise the Krakens call
Five into one unholy sound
Make the great earthquake
Everything we got to give
Is more than you can take
Make way for the big green terror
Green Terror – Await its beck and call
Green Terror – Arise one and all
Green Terror – An army at your back
Green Terror – Bring forth the attack
Green Terror – Await its beck and call
Green Terror – Arise one and all
Green Terror – An army at your back
Green Terror – Bring forth the attack
