Metal Clergy - Piece & Carats (Continuous Mix)


Metal Clergy consists of Hempstead's Roc Marciano and his Brownsville counterpart Ka, who first announced that the two had been working on an album called Piece Be With You back in 2012. Rabid fans such as myself have been champing at the bit ever since. Unfortunately, though we've been kept abreast of the project's progress through various interviews, there is still no scheduled release date. So, in an effort to imagine what a completed Metal Clergy album might sound like and showcase the combined strengths of the artists involved, I decided to compile a continuous mix comprised of all the already-released Roc-Ka songs played in semi-chronological sequence with a few relevant interview clips scattered across the transitions. The resulting nine-song mix you are (hopefully) about to listen to clocks in at 33:36. I am by no means a DJ — this whole thing was put together using Audacity — so some of the transitions are smoother than others, but I did my best to keep it at least generally cohesive. Below you will find the download link, tracklist, and mix credits including links to places where you can purchase the albums containing these songs. Do not ask me to upload the individual tracks, because I will not. Please support the artists.
