Excellent dark gothic preaching from the former Queens of the Stone Age man

This gravedigger is growling out blood red cult rock, dredged from America’s deepest South. Against a wall of thrumming bass, sleazing, super heavy guitar and pounding drums, former Queen of the Stone Age Lanegan preaches in crossroad tones, somewhere between Nick Cave’s hell-bound sinner stylings and the haunted baritone of the late Johnny Cash.  As a precursor to the forthcoming Blues Funeral album, The Gravediggers Song suggests 2012 will see MLB delivering a dark powerhouse of gothic delight. 8/10
