The Step Kings

Let’s Get it On!

Roadrunner

Ad nauseum imploring us to “come on, come on!” the Step King’s hip-hop-metal neither hips nor hops – nor “metals,” for that matter – anywhere in particular, anywhere interesting…basically, nowhere , the band raging against a machine it can neither see nor sense on Let’s Get it On! On top of that, these white boys even toss around the word “nigga” – sheesh! Let’s get it on? No way, tough guy.

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
