Sons of Perdition play psalms for the spiritually dead. Running wide-eyed through the dusty attics of regional American music, spinning tales of sorrow, madness, revenge and soul-gnashing woe, the Sons were spat forth from the mouth of an angry God. Listen and repent.
The brooding child of Zebulon Whatley (of the undecayed Whatley’s, Scrougout clan), Sons of Perdition are probably haunting a church or tent revival near you. Pass the arsenic and hand over that serpent, brother.
Here's what folks have to say about the album:
"Putting their own original western spin on gothic country music, the Sons have delivered a beautiful brimstone masterpiece with The Kingdom Is On Fire... an absolutely phenomenal album from start to finish."
-Jared Morningstar, Hank In Chains Review
"It's one of the most original and doomed country records to come out since 'Satan is Real'.... A goddamn masterpiece."
-Lonesome Wyatt, Those Poor Bastards
"...a funeral march of depression awash in moonshine, blood and the Bible. Thirteen tracks (how fitting) of the blackest and bleakest country and western tunes moaning about the depths of Hell in the human spirit, sea monsters, and the Civil War."
-Adel Souto, Feast of Hate and Fear
"The Sons are masters of loneliness, despair and they carry with them a most unearthly fear of God."
-Ashlee Elfmann, Swampland
"The Kingdom Is On Fire is crammed with thirteen tales of sweet revenge, suicide, the coming of the lord and the treachery of Satan.... There's just not enough praise you can give this album."
-Black Angel, Black Angel Promotions
