Kansas City-based death/thrash metal band ARES KINGDOM is in final rehearsals for its second album, which the group is scheduled to begin recording in January at its own Very Metal Sound studio.ARES KINGDOM earlier in the year released "Firestorms and Chaos", a CD collection of early singles and demos, through NWN! Productions. Copies are available directly from the band through their official web site.
In June 2008, ARES KINGDOM played three California dates on the Blood of the Damned tour with ANGELCORPSE, GOSPEL OF THE HORNS, HOLOCAUST WOLVES OF THE APOCALYPSE, CEMETERY URN and SANGUIS IMPEREM. In September 2007 the band released the "Failsafe" 12" single, a limited-edition 12" featuring a reworked version of OFC's "Imperium", as well as a cover of DETENTE's "Vultures in the Sky".
