As their name may indicate, The Queen Killing Kings is an unusual act. Eschewing the classic rock line-up, they feature two keyboardists and no guitars. Their lyrics are filled with references to demons, witches, and condemned killers, yet they’re hardly gloom-filled Goths; instead, their music is inviting and catchy.
The songs are genuine and the pianist's voice is warm and emotional. The two-piece, drum and piano combination added to the originality. The best part of their set was the last song, a piano ballad with no drums. The singer -- with just piano and voice -- delivered such a strong closing moment I got goose bumps.
