In two strikingly similar careers that seem to parallel each other at every turn, the charismatic rappers have forged bodies of work that are some of the most respected in hip hop. Bloody tracks, devastated mics and shattered perceptions have all been left in the wake of these two dynamic MCs. Bill and Paz are well known for a penchant for heavy beats and viciously rugged rhymes; both are known for their incendiary live performances, and this was an inevitable collision.
Both MCs have followed similar, unrelenting paths to their current destinations; each having garnered heavy respect throughout the '90s during a prolific period of independent Hip Hop. Bill with Uncle Howie Records and Paz with his home-grown Enemy Soil Records. From the '90s into the new millennium, Ill Bill and Paz produced a string of underground classics with Paz's memorable work as the long-time leader of Philadelphia's Jedi Mind Tricks and Bill's Brooklyn-bred powerhouse Non Phixion. Both groups were responsible for creating music that has since been described as classic: Non Phixion's The Future is Now and JMT's Violent By Design. Paz and Bill have also launched successful solo careers and have put in work with supergroups such as Paz's battle-tested outfit Army of the Pharaohs, and Ill Bill's collective of legendary MCs: La Coka Nostra.
Like their name, The Heavy Metal Kings display all the slick, rhythmical timings of Hip Hop while incorporating the adrenaline and utter desecration of Metal. Together their vision and sound are allowed the full breadth of expression and the sound result is a collection of music that lives up to its name with the kind of blood-curdling sonic bombast that is only found in genres like Heavy Metal and Hardcore.
