BIO

Kingnaldo's music is vibrant and exciting much like the great artists that made the psychedelic 70's era a memorable one. With a modern flare from the alternative grunge, and nu-metal movement; his style is a mix of old, and new Rock. His music is dynamic, and his lyrics are dark in a positive way; touching on human rights and self completion as a main source for freedom.

From San Sebastian, Puerto Rico, born on October 16, 1980, Kingnaldo started music at an early age. A perfect fusion of Motown, and Latin old school ballads was his background noise. At age 10 he began listening to Metallica, Guns N Roses, Pantera, Sepultura, Bowie, Morrison, and Michael Jackson. At age 13, showing a deep desire to play drums, his father bought him a kit. Playing the drums everyday for hours, he quickly mastered the double pedal to mimic the drummers he admired. When the grunge, and nu-metal movement was introduced in the 90’s, Kingnaldo felt truly connected, and identified with many of the bands such as Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, Alice in Chains, Deftones, and Korn. By mid 90's Kingnaldo had embraced hard rock metal, becoming one of the best in his region, playing all over Puerto Rico.

Kingnaldo has worked in many different styles of music, ranging from Hard Rock, Pop, and Alternative, to Hip Hop, Electronica, and R&B. His vast music experience has led him to be a master in writing, composing, arranging, and producing his own music. In 2009 Kingnaldo released his debut album Organic Antidote to rave reviews. “I have made a pact with nature” states Kingnaldo. "Organic Antidote is a musical statement of my commitment, a way of expressing what I feel and how I live. It is for everyone that feels uncomfortable with today's system."

In 2012 King released his second album Combustion to a marvelous and amazed reaction from the listeners of his innovating unique music style, and singing versatility.  Combustion was recorded at Heretic Mute Studio in Atlanta, GA.

Kingnaldo’s third LP Memorandum was released on September 2014. The album was recorded, and produced by Kingnaldo, and Doug Grean (Stone Temple Pilots, Slash, Scott Weiland, Sheryl Crow, and Velvet Revolver among others). Memorandum was recorded at Scott Weiland studio Lavish (Burbank, CA), The Loft (Highland Park, CA), and Heretic Mute (Atlanta, GA). Memorandum was also mixed by Doug Grean. "I consider that Memorandum is my best work so far, and been loving the unenviable positive reaction, feedback, and amazing reviews that its been having by media, and from listeners of all ages. We have definitely accomplish a unique sound in this one of a kind classic, and special record that is Memorandum for me", says King...

Since 2009, King has been touring nationwide, playing cities in the US, and Puerto Rico in support of his albums. He has received rave reviews in Billboard, MSN, AOL, Miami Herald, Houston Chronicle, Terra, Batanga, Galavision, Mega TV, etc. Kingnaldo has shared the stage with many bands from Puerto Rico such as "Puya", "Cultura Profética" & "Circo" as well as artists, and bands in the United States such as "Yngwie Malmsteem", "Gary Hoey", "Bumblefoot", "Mushroomhead", and Swedish metal band "Avatar".

Currently King is recording a new album for his new nu-metal side band project called MUKARO, together with Puerto Rican rock legends like guitarist Miguel Tito Rodriguez from Sol D Menta, and bassist Harold Hopkins Miranda from PUYA. MUKARO will be featuring iconic guitarist Ron Thal Bumblefoot, and will be mix by the English legendary producer, and engineer Warren Huart (Aerosmith, James Blunt, The Fray, Korn among others). Album expected to be released independently in the fall of 2016.
