Biography

VAINGLORY is a band that features intense riffs, masterful guitar, virtuoso drumming, heavy bass, powerful vocals and thought provoking lyrics.

Based around Corbin King, this band has all the ingredients in place to be a major force on the metal market for years to come. Along with guitarist/songwriter Corbin King the band includes vocal sensation Kate French, of Chastain fame. Kate's ability to mix power, conviction, emotion, and true heavy metal singing is very uncommon in today's "metal" vocalists. Kate is veteran to heavy metal and has not only pushed beyond the normal bounds of female vocalists, but has delivered her best recorded performance to date on this CD.

The addition of a second guitarist took place in early 2005 when Corbin brought aboard guitarist John Michael Youngblood. John is a former long time student of Corbin's and through years of practice, dedication, and friendship, landed himself a spot in VAINGLORY. John was the perfect compliment to VAINGLORY with the crushing tone and tight rhythm playing.

New drummer Dan Lynch, was hired into Vainglory's ranks the same year after answering an audition ad in a local newspaper. Dan will without a doubt establish himself along side the greats in metal drumming when the new Vainglory CD hits your ears. Dan's thunderous beats, fills and footwork on this new CD is some of the best metal drumming ever laid down.

Bassist Chris Banja, found his way into Vainglory in 2005 after being recommended for the job by an acquaintance of Corbin's. Chris rounds out the band and adds his own signature bass touch to an already powerful line up. The tasteful bass lines that also tear through scales right alongside Corbin and John adds the perfect balance to this world class band.

Vainglory will be on the forefront of the metal scene, dominating you with the awe inspiring new CD and incredible live performances.

Lyrics

Burdened

Written By: Music: Corbin King, Lyrics: Corbin King, Kate French

Burdened

Burdened by the weight
I withstand all that crowd my space
Lost adrift a sea of second rate
An endless maze
Time will tell us
Who will be there standing tall
An epic figure
Unto which the masses all shall crawl

I'll carry on
Time to take up arms and run you through
My heart beats strong
Passion guides me through all that I do

One by one you'll fall
I'm the fear that clouds your eyes
Days are running low
Time to say your last goodbyes
The sun will never shine
Upon your twisted fantasy
Face to face I'll take you
Lay to rest your misery

I'll carry on
Time to take up arms and run you through
My heart beats strong
Passion guides me through

There's nothing you can change
No way to forgive the pain

A new day brings
The promise and a hope again
The blood that has been shed
Feeds the starving barren land
Giving future lives a chance to survive
In a world free from all that you have been

I'll carry on
Time to take up arms and run you through
My heart beats strong
Passion guides me through all that I do
