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.
Satan is among us tonight, friends! In this world and these times of darkness, who shall save us from ultimate damnation? Well, Zebulon Whatley seems pretty determined to try his best. Whatley is the mastermind behind the gothic-western folk outfit The Sons of Perdition, and he has just delivered their debut album The Kingdom Is On Fire
to the world. Appropriately released on Easter Sunday, it does not take listeners long to realize that even though the album tells several tales of the End Times, this is no ordinary contemporary Christian record. No rainbows here - just pure final judgment, in all its hellish glory. --Hank in Chains
