Cdatakill – Battleworn – CD
It took half a decade to Cdatakill to write his fourth full length album, but here’s finally a follow-up to 2008’s remarked “Valentine”. And though time has passed, this new “Battleworn” is a perfect companion to its predecessor, whose slowly creeping rhythms, warm and dusty pads and echoed, twisted samples are to be found again here. Added to the recipe is a somewhat darker (maybe a bit more metal) feeling, a slight use of guitars, and longer samples (fans will appreciate the Johnny Cash-infused “God Will Cut You Down”). An extremely welcome come-back and an album which allows us all to get our long-awaited new dose of Cdatakill’s twisted-but-humane sounds. Very recommended.
