Top of the Line Guitarist Reflects on Album and Friendship

Corbin King, Top of the Line guitarist, sat down for a Strange Music interview. He chopped it up about the album, his own career, and his friendship with Rittz. The Georgia-native guitarist laid down riffs for the songs “Propane,” “Ghost Story,” “Back to Yesterday,” and “Day of the Dead.” The two artist met working at a music store called Mars Music when they started producing music together. Now, on Top of the Line, he is enjoying the chance to do something different than his normal Slayer type music. Rittz asked for something that sounds like you are attacking someone with a chainsaw for the track “Day of the Dead.” Corbin especially can’t wait for fans to hear that musical slaughter. He plays guitar for his own heavy metal band Vainglory. It’s vocalist is his wife who he met through putting that band together.

Over the past 16 years Corbin has seen Rittz evolve and is one proud friend. Working with Rittz allows him to do something different yet do what he wants. Comparing the difference between metal and hip-hop he states, “You’re in a different atmosphere – you have to take everything you know and put it in a different place.” But, over all it’s really like hanging out as friends. Speaking of the axe he uses on Top of the Line, he has a bit of a “Frankenstien” Fender. It’s his comfort axe and has used it on everything he’s done for Rittz.

The interview ends with a little insight to the Atlanta metal scene. The overall outlook is not good. It’s pretty much a sure lost. Metal fans are not ones to want to come out to shows apparently.
