San Francisco's KING WOMAN unveil their debut full-length Created In The Image of Suffering, a profoundly crafted opus of brooding, ethereal doom-rock. Led by the hypnotic and breathy vocal dramatics of Kristina Esfandiari, KING WOMAN harness the elastic textures and temporality of drone and metallic shoegaze alongside the transcendental, melancholic power of doom.

Created in the Image of Suffering is the debut studio album by American doom metal band King Woman, released on February 24, 2017 through Relapse Records. The album has strong religious themes, inspired by the band's leadmember Kristina Esfandiari's upbringing in a Charismatic Christian church. The album was recorded with producer Jack Shirley at the Atomic Garden in Palo Alto, California

Esfandiari doesn’t repent during Created in the Image of Suffering, King Woman’s brazen and brilliant first LP, either. Her writing is gripping and unapologetic, shrugging off the veils and cloaks of Doubt to address her grievances and express her regrets directly.

Kristina Esfandiari allows some of her backing vocal tracks to move into more of a scream. And there is weight to the guitars, which often carry the dense distortion of doom. Overall, this album starts off with a dreamier coating and then wakes to form a more grounded powerhouse. These guys paint a bleak portrait with varied shades of unease. The album carries the sense of dynamics I look for not just in metal, but any kind of music. Their sense of who they are is very solid here, with each side this band shows feeling valid and real.

Created in the Face of Suffering is King Woman's debut after the spare release of some singles and one EP and it constitutes the first work through Relapse Records, although it's a project that has been going for around 4 years, specifically since the release of the single Degrida/Sick Bed. Onto the album, the first thing that stands out from CitIoS is the magnificent artwork, courtesy of Brazilian artist Pedro Felipe, who has also worked with other Relapse Records bands like Dewolff and Christian Mistress
