“The Problem of Evil” by To Kill a King – A Song Review
As the tombstone shows, we’re not scheduled to pass away until 2052. So, if no post is added for some period of time, we’ve been struck down as a direct consequence of our inability to resist the music of To Kill a King. “The Problem of Evil” is built around a preacher questioning his Lord regarding the presence of evil in the world.
To Kill a King has always had a dark side, so this song shouldn’t be a surprise. At one time, we compared the band to the main character in the television series “Dexter.” Dexter is an extremely likable guy who is effective in taking mass murderers out of circulation – he kills them. Similarly, the music of To Kill a King is extremely likable, but it arrives in a vehicle that should be more troubling than we allow it to be.
To Kill a King is based in London and is comprised of Ralph Pelleymounter (vocals, guitar), James Ball (bass), Ben Jackson (synth, keys), Grant McNeill (guitar), and Josh Taffel (drums).
