King Bull is a Canadian power-trio from Alberta and has been around for something like 13 years although it seems that they have not always had the same name or even line-up, they are obviously then the musical equivalent to Trigger's broom (look this up on the internet if unsure of the reference).

Necrophobic – Dawn Of The Damned (Century Media Records)

Necrophobic are riding on the waves of inspiration lately.
