I built and ran this website between 2000 and 2001, combining passion for popular music and programming. It was listed by MTV's now defunct MusicNewswire as one of the then nascent web's top twenty sources, alongside Billboard and VH1. The most exciting part of it — for a 13/14-year-old excited by new music — was receiving scores of pre-release CDs from record companies. The entire project was written entirely from scratch (frameworks and libraries were not the norm back then!) in PHP linking to a MySQL database, with HTML as well as a little CSS and JavaScript for the frontend; the code is available here.

King Adora - Suffocate
14 February 2001 | 0:00:00 GMT/UTC

Suffocate is King Adora's fourth single, it is about "two people possessed by each others entitys. Haunted to the point of unhealthy obsession".

It's a very rocky tune, which would sound good live or even acoustic but it seems a bit over-produced.

Also on the CD is Aceface, which has a very similar sound to the title-track. You can watch the video for their last single - Smoulder, which was better - on one of the CDs. If you do want to invest in King Adora buy the last single.
