Heavy Metal Kings is the self-titled debut album by underground hip hop duo Heavy Metal Kings.[4]

Ill Bill and Vinnie Paz have since combined forces to form a group of the same name, "Heavy Metal Kings," and record a full self-titled album to be released April 5, 2011 through Enemy Soil/Uncle Howie. "Keeper Of The Seven Keys" produced by up and coming producer, C-Lance, is the first track from the new Heavy Metal Kings album. The album features production from DJ Muggs, Ill Bill, Shuko, Sicknature, C-Lance, Grand Finale, Jack of All Trades, Junior Makhno, Vherbal, and DJ Premier protégé Gemcrates alongside a cast of emcees, including Reef the Lost Cauze, Slaine, Crypt the Warchild, Q-Unique, and Sabac Red.[5]

Ill Bill & Vinnie Paz are working on two new projects, one with several producers like the first album called Black God White Devil and one with DJ Muggs (Whom Ill Bill had previously collaborated with on an album entitled Kill Devil Hills), entitled Heavy Metal Kings vs. DJ Muggs.
