From Flint, Michigan, formed in 2007, King 810 – formerly known as simply King – are back with their second full length album. Entitled “La Petite Mort Or A Conversation With God”, it’s darker and more disturbing then the debut album was back in 2014.
This is quite murderous. Literally. Because David Gunn’s world is not as comfortable as your usual living room. It’s not live on TV, it happens to you. He speak up openly about real life, poverty, abuses, faith, violence and hate. He spits anger and portray the world as most of us refuse to see it. But, my beloved liars and fools, this is the world we are all living in, can’t deny it, can’t ignore it, one day it will come and get you anyway.
“Ladies & gentlemen
Welcome to the truth
God made me in his image who the fuck made you?
You want my voice from me you can have it just know
I sound like this because the Devil has my throat
I make your insides shift that is my gift
The sea parts and then comes the flood
And men have died to make this you can’t imitate shit
The talent I have I paid for in blood
I can tell you about things you’ll die never having known
And I can take you places you could never ever go
And Ive been there so just know that death comes slow
And life goes fast before you know it its through with your ass
Bitch I am the powers that be
I am Christ crucified on the T
I am the Alpha and the Omega
I’m the messiah the gnashing of teeth
No one meets death until they see me
I am the Alpha and the Omega”
This is slow, brutal and unforgiving as is the pain.
While the general trend is to be happy and see only the bright side of the life, King 810 give us a wake-up call.
Don’t care? Don’t wanna hear it?
F_ck you! Because you’re f_cked anyway, even if you don’t know yet.
“And I know the Vedas
And the universe is holographic
And there’s collective consciousness
And fractals and systematics
I know these things
I know I’m god in this land as a conscience being
“I am the I am”
And I created everything!”
David Gunn still sound like the psycho evil twin of Bill Manspeaker from Green Jellÿ, but this is not Cereal Killer and the Three Little Pigs are four grown up wolves now.
