Christ Kenneth - The Abomination of Desolation

For Christ Kenneth, a home-studio in Holbrook is the (un)holy cave of Nazareth. There the artist loops funeral dirges for beats over which he pens dark missives, like "The light was so bright in your eyes, the moon was full / You were looking beautiful, now I'm alone and my room is full / Of smoke but I'm bleeding from my cuticles, losing hope." That's from "No Sheep 2 Count," which opens Kenneth's The Abomination of Desolation. As those lines and that title indicate, darkness and isolation are common themes throughout the project. About half the production was handled by Fony47 (who also guests on the final track), yet the relase feels like a one-man black metal album as much as a rap mixtape. Not a bad thing.
