King Cannibal - Let The Night Roar (4 stars)

King Cannibal - Let The Night Roar

If only for the sake of his neighbours you’d like to hope that Dylan Richards lives in a cave somewhere out in the wilderness, miles from anyone or anything for his fondness for all shapes and colours of trembling, earthquake bass would have the surrounding area shaking like it’s the San Andreas fault.

Relying on bass as the pivotal element in his demonic dub constructions he manages to blend horror movie tension and Burial-style disorienting urban ambience with syncopated beatings and murmured threads to devastating effect. This is the stuff that made early jungle so appealing in the era of Genaside II and their scary ilk. Now all together ‘WE’RE ALL DOOOOOOOOMED!’
