Kings of Carnage is a heavy metal band whose members are all MI alumni as well as military veterans. Forming after two of the musicians met during their service in Afghanistan, the band has quickly gained exposure for its hard-rocking sound and incredible story. They were featured in an in-depth interview in Alternative Nation, following their appearance at the Knotfest festival alongside some of the biggest names in hard rock including Slipknot, Anthrax, Black Label Society and many more. Kings of Carnage also recently won two Indie Music Channel Awards, and released their album, The Crimson Stone, on May 4, 2015. The band recently hit the road again alongside rock/metal band Sinicle for the co-headlining Wild Wild West Coast Tour, sponsored by Coldcock Whiskey.
