King Parrot

It’s Aussie slang for that annoying guy that won’t shut up.
You call that guy a parrot.
We’re that guy’s boss…
King Parrot are a 5 piece thrash grind metal outfit, brand new on the scene. It consists of members that have punished the ears and minds of Australian metal heads for many years in bands like, Blood Duster, Dreadnaught, Watchdog Discipline, Cockfight Shootout, Stiff Meat and Mustang. The songs are short and hard delivered with blistering intent. Uncompromising brutality.
They stop at nothing to deliver a kick in the face every time.
