La Petite Mort Or A Conversation With God
Not yet reviewed.
King 810 release their anticipated new album, 'La Petite Mort Or A Conversation With God,' the Flint, Michigan based band's follow up to their provocative and acclaimed debut LP 'Memoirs Of A Murderer.'
The album features the gripping first single, "I Ain't Goin Back Again."
Produced by Josh Schroeder, Justyn Pilbrow and King 810 and recorded at Bay City, Michigan's Random Awesome! Recording Studio, 'La Petite Mort Or A Conversation With God' finds King 810 taking listeners deep into the dark heart of Flint.
Far from a retread of their acclaimed debut, 'La Petite Mort' – translating to "The Little Death" - is an inspired, holistic body of work that marks a profound evolutionary leap for the restless and driven souls of King 810. The title itself is a reference to the dual themes of the records: the real life violence and despair of Flint that builds the basis of Gunn's narrative, and the steady desensitization and terminal closing down of the human spirit experienced when confronted with those real life conditions. Around that conceptual core is an omnipresent haze of dark sexuality and desperation that provides La Petite Mort with some of its most unnerving moments.
'La Petite Mort' kicks down the door and delivers grim realities with powerful album stand outs like the ferocious Alpha & Omega and powerful title track "La Petite Mort." As the album takes listeners on a journey to enlightenment via Gunn's self-reflection, it continually builds upon a diverse musical palette showcasing dark ambient electronica ("Wolves Run Together"), street-level poetry ("War Time" Feat. Trick Trick) and grand string arrangements ("Black Swan"). For King 810, the little deaths of 'La Petite Mort' bring a transcendental empowerment which takes hold throughout the album's stark narrative.
Earlier this year King 810 took action as a pillar of the Flint, MI community with the release of new music taking aim at the water crisis devastating their hometown. The band released two new tracks: "We Gotta Help Ourselves," a poignant track supported by a partnership with local Flint outlet Savage Village, and "Crow's Feet," which was featured on 'Not Safe To Drink: Music For Flint Water Crisis Relief,' a charity compilation.
King 810's 2014 debut LP, 'Memoirs Of A Murderer,' garnered critical acclaim upon its release.
