King Cannibal Let the Night Roar
Dark is the word thrown around most often to describe King Cannibal, and it’s probably the single best word to encapsulate the full aesthetic, sound, and ethos of the artist formerly known as Zilla. Let the Night Roar is a surprisingly cohesive album, representing pan-genrism at its best. “Aragami Style” kicks in the tight breakcore vein of a London Squat, the funky Jahcoozi collab “Murder Us” gets as dark and slinky as any track by The Bug, “Dirt” is a fantastic dancehall number that finds Daddy Freddy sounding better than he has in ages, and even the borderline ambience of “Onward Vultures” has its place. A fine debut, especially if you’re feeling a little evil.
