Tyler, Texas natives Fit for a King got their start in 2007 as a group of six Christian musicians wanting to share their faith and fondness for metal music. Over the years the Christian metalcore outfit has released two EPs and one full-length album, 2011's Descendants. Now just a quintet, Fit for a King is set to release their second album, entitled Creation/Destruction, on March 12. Check out music from Fit for a King in the nearby video box.
