Origin (2022)

“An album with so much variety, so many shifts and twists, that it’s not exclusively for one genre fan or another. Sure, stoner fans will probably find themselves sitting the most comfortably while listening to it but it’s absurd to suggest metal and rock fans in general won’t find reasons to groove and move to a least a handful of tracks here."


"In their latest release, Origin, the band members have pushed themselves, and they’ve successfully avoided the sophomore slump with something as fresh as it is exciting...Origin feels fresh at every turn because it’s entirely unpredictable, making every song a new, fresh discovery in the Indus Valley Kings kingdom."


 "'Origin" is a very interesting and varied album that will be loved by smoky heads looking for the right refreshment for the mind. A group that is doing remarkable things and is a candidate for disc of the year...”


“This was endless rock fun, and we suggest it to anyone that loves real deal doom, grunge, classic rock, garage and fuzztone with smart songwriting. Crank this one and enjoy it.”

"As with their eponymous debut, Origin will be a permanent staple on my metal/doom/stoner playlist and it should undeniably make it to yours. Pick up this gem of an album and let the Kings take you on a trip you’ll want to retake over and over."

Indus Valley Kings (2021)

“Although they’ve drawn comparisons to Kyuss, Corrosion of Conformity, Helmet, and 70s era Black Sabbath, that doesn’t really capture how radio-friendly they’d be in a different age. “Remains of Yesterday,” for example, is a steady headbanger with standout harmonies, and “Devil” rides on a heavy, pulsating attack that eventually erupts into a euphoric guitar solo. Although they’ve certainly drawn inspiration from all of the aforementioned bands, there’s something distinct about their sound that makes them immediately unique but extremely accessible.”

“Aficionados of 70's hard rock and heavy blues, devotees of doom and suckers for a bit of stoner/desert grooviness will all find something to sate their appetites on IVK's self-titled debut, the album is a jamboree bag of musical delights that never stops giving.”

“The band puts out a polished album all-around and sound really tight playing together. I have a feeling they’d be a great act to see live. Indus Valley Kings manage to carve out a unique sound for themselves, marking their debut with a solid LP that has immense replay value.”

“Fans of the hard rock of the 70's and heavy blues, fans of doom but also of stoner and desert rock will all find something to satisfy their appetites in the debut album of IVK, which is full of musical pleasures.” “Indus Valley Kings is a hard rock band from Long Island, NY. The group recently released their brutal album ‘Indus Valley Kings.’ The album was remarkable and gloomy in the most positive way possible; it was unrestrained, charming, and made me want to turn the volume up as high as it could go.”
