fear of dracular.

crown me king's newest album, empire theory, is absolutely sublime. the synthisis of basically every genre available into a lovecraftian amalgam is beyond description. if rock & roll was the cowboy shoot-out at high noon, crown me king is drawn pistols at midnight (with a samurai ijatsu duel speckling, robin's egg blue). empire theory as an album is smooth as aged scotch. the band's maturity is really colouring their work in a supportive way; some of the technical tricks are just stunning. on "absolom, absolom!" the trailing wail (like some fucking ringwraith) just hits me right in the guts; "coquette sphinx" is another track with arid spaces, left like gravitic mines in the kobyashi maru test. just fucking inevitable. what a great, great album.
