after something like seven straight excellent albums the man deserves a thread. he has a certain je-ne-sais-quois that makes me vastly prefer him to the other drumless east coast grit merchants like roc marci or the griselda crew. part of it is definitely his craggy voice that makes each line sound like ancient wisdom. i think the recently released a martyr's reward is at least as good as last year's descendants of cain, even if it doesn't have a highlight as obvious as "i love."

the new one is def of a piece with descendants of cain. still very writerly, but mostly avoids the themed references and metaphors (like the biblical stuff in cain or the greek mythology in his hermit and the recluse album).
