Second Album of this stoner/doom/Rock project where Dan Lorenzo and Johnny Kelly meet a lot of well known musicians like Agell, Traynor, Kosco a.o.
Back in Black...
Just over a year after the furious debut "Reach For The Scars", riff machine Dan Lorenzo (Cassius King, Hades) once again proves that he just can't leave it alone and, together with drummer Johnny Kelly (Danzig, Type O Negative, Quit Riot), presents the second album of their joint project PATRIARCHS IN BLACK. Once again, the duo makes use of an illustrious group of guest musicians. It almost seems that nobody can escape the stoner/doom/rock charm, because also on "My Veneration" the guest list reads like a "who is who" of the rock, alternative and metal scene.
In addition to Karl Agell (COC), Dave Neabore (Dog Eat Dog), Rob Traynor, John Kosco and Eric J. Morgan, already known from the previous album, this time artists like DMC, Mark Sunshine, Kelly Abe, Gianni Pontillo and many more immortalise themselves on the 13 songs, which mercilessly roll out of the speakers directly into the listener's auditory canals.
Every single song unfolds its very special, individual charm, and yet Lorenzo/Kelly manage to make the album sound like a unified whole. Entertaining, varied and with an unbelievable love of rock'n'roll - including a Kiss and a Black Sabbath cover version, which could not have been more aptly chosen as musical cornerstones.
