King Dude – Tonight’s Special Death
King Dude (real name TJ Cowgill for short ) is an American musician and songwriter from Seattle whose music is described as dark folk and neo-folk. In a time when American folk music has lost touch with its bloody roots, King Dude seeks to illuminate the darkness with sex, death, love, insanity, and Lucifer’s light. Since 2006, his devotional rock ‘n’ roll has been both the medium and the message; his throaty baritone and devilishly visceral songwriting the tools he wields to ignite the fiery spirit of revelation in all who encounter him. Tonight’s Special Death is his debut album, released in 2010. Sold out for many years, it was re-issued in 2018 from Ván Records. Trad-apocalyptic ballads immersed in satanic and pagan symbolism mixing the dark touch of Death In June and :Of The Wand & The Moon: with the classic folk by Dylan, Guthrie and Leonard Cohen in a very personal and impressive way.
