Born from the ashes of Rochester's best (Velvet Elvis / Abandoned Buildings Club). They invade your ears with heavy driving riffs and a familiar groove. Psychedelic, blues and stoner overtones combine with thunderous bass and drums, reminiscent of heavy 70′s rock. A wall of sound, a trio of soaring vocals, and an unrelenting pace merge to form their own musical styling. King Buffalo is committed to being a unique and progressive recording artist, while performing live with an unapologetic heavy groove.
Currently they are awaiting the release of their 12″ split with Sweden's Le Betre on STB Records, which is due winter 2014/2015. They have also been asked to record "House Burning Down" as part of a Jimi Hendrix Electric Ladyland Compilation on Magnetic Eye Records. This will feature some amazing bands, including Earthless, Mothership, Wo Fat, The Budos Band, All Them Witches, Elder and many more. Artwork will done by David Paul Seymour.

Psychedelic stoner sludge metal from StL. We write heavy songs about a trans-dimensional death beast that devours entire planets.
Planet Eater formed out of a cosmic rift caused by a collapsing binary system near the edge of the universe. So begins the saga…
Actually, Planet Eater formed when ex-members of Saint Louis punk troupe Broken Class wanted to make something much heavier. Founding members Nate (drums) and Brady (bass) took the suggestion of a mutual friend and recruited Adam, formerly of Flicker Vertigo (an all-military punk outfit in Oklahoma City—now defunct), to take up lead guitar duties. Songs and grooves started to manifest but the sound needed Declan to fill out the sound.
Writing for Planet Eater's first album began in the summer of 2013. They draw upon their expansive knowledge of multiple subgenres of punk, metal, and classic rock to produce their stoner/sludge/doom edge.
