Prey for Paralysis-Sadistik/KRISTOFF KRANE/Graham O'Brien
Sadistik and Kristoff Krane have both put out albums that I have loved and appreciated. Listening to Sadistik is a way to embrace the darkness. I don't mean in a douchy Hot Topic goth emo kid. He is like the best philosophers and he will take you to a place where you know life is shit and yet you are OK with it. It is comforting to just let go of all hope and live. Kristoff Krane is a bit more on the positive side. He knows shit gets real sometimes but he will guide you along and make sure you know it is not that bad. The two individuals are both at the top in my opinion for different reasons and when you put them together you get something unique. Prey for Paralysis has Graham O' Brien in the producer chair and he brings something that you have never even thought of hearing. I have listened to this album many times already and still hear something new each time. It is haunting and beautiful while still throat punching you in the soul. The album flows better than an anemic on her period. Each song precisely placed with the precision of a David Lynch film. The two instrumentals are a welcome breath of fresh air so you can process what you have just heard and let it sink in like the passengers on the Titanic.
These three gentlemen have created something so close to perfect I don't even know completely how to put it into words. The best way I can describe it is that it is like being brutally raped by someone that try's to romanticize you at the same time. It's something you don't expect, all of your fears have surfaced and you are scared for what comes next yet still intrigued because he just keeps longing into your eyes lovingly.
