Title Origin Official

Kitchen Ace (and Taking Names) is obviously a censored form of the phrase "kicking ass and taking names". Listeners compare the track to Pantera's Rise due to its droning guitars and various drum interludes.

This track appears on the Doom Music album. Bobby Prince composed the song using Sequencer Plus Gold.
