Murder By Death
In Boca Al Lupo 180g Black Vinyl
Murder By Death's third album is comprised of 12 different stories, all about sin, redemption, and guilt. Murder By Death layer the vocal sounds of an old saloon with the haunting strings of a Hungarian folk dance and the hard driving rhythms of pure rock 'n' roll, producing lush, orchestrated songs somehow simultaneously reminiscent of Johnny Cash and Radiohead. Added to that thick and intriguing sound are a series of dark and ironic lyrics, combining the mood and tone of Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds with the narrative force of The Decemberists or a short story by Nathanial Hawthorne.
