"It grieves me that no one's bothered to write a review for this disk, so I figured I would. I normally don't like country at all, but I've recently found out about this whole Gothic Country/Americana thing, which combines roots type music with a darker southern gothic, Poe type feel. A very cool genre indeed. Anyway this album is great. Christianity at it fire and brimstone, "Sinners In The Hands of an Angry God" best. If you like Those Poor Bastards, 16 Horsepower/Wovenhand then you'll probably love it, even if it does have a little more "twang" then those bands. Great up-tempo tracks like the title track to slower and creepier almost hymn like dirges "Blood In The Valley." This is western sounding music at its bloody, revenge and dust filled best. And some "preaching" by Brother Lonesome Wyatt which is rather funny "F*** you Satan!" Great little disk so buy it or burn ye pitiful sinner!"
