Dirty White King, the latest LP from Captain Mantell,
moves on a darker and powerfull direction than the previous works of the trio.
It tells the story of a symbolic king murder using new recordings techniques and a cinematographic approach which
make this album sounding like an heavy soundtrack for a obscure film.
It’s not easy to find a reference because this album sounds like
a mix of different inspirations (John Zorn, Morphine, Faith No More, The Beatles, Soundgarden, King Crimson…)
melted together in a new strange way.
The darkness of the record is well described by the complex artwork of Seals Of Blackening.
The collaborations are two: Francesco Chimenti from Sycamore Age (vocals and cellos)
and Nicola Manzan from Bologna Violenta (strings).
