The Swan King

Chicago trio the Swan Ruler infuse large, prog-infused riffs with screamo vocals and modernize the building blocks constructed by ‘90s post-hardcore acts like Get Like Jehu and Slint with some metal. Formed in ’09 2009 by guitarist/vocalist Dallas Thomas (Asschapel, Group of Pets), bassist Jamie Drier (Planes Recognised incorrectly as Superstars), and drummer Zafar Musharraf, the trio released a gritty demonstration, titled Great Deeds, before chasing it up with 2011’s Eye Like Kitchen knives, an eight-song record documented by Pelican manufacturer Sanford Parker.
