UPDATE: In the midst of rolling out one overdue, hotly-anticipated LP (see below) Ghostface also talks up another: the by this point almost-legendary DOOMSTARKS prequel-sequel, skip to the video interview below for a tantalizing tidbit of ‘Face talking about it as if its real and not a fable.
Ghostface Killah is back with a vengeance on this first leak from the highly-anticipated Adrian Younge-produced albums Twelve Reasons To Die. The single “The Rise Of The Ghostface Killah” packs all the dirty drum hits and scary feedback you expect from the Shaolin Temple but Adrian Younge brings a haunting pop melodic sense that pushes this track to another level, uh, chamber. Even while ‘Face is talking “murder, murder, murder / kill, kill, kill” this groove has me picturing a harem of Vampyros Lesbos standing behind Tony Starks whispering “Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!“ even as they snuggle into their borrowed TROOP bathrobes. Stream or download below via the bandcamp page of RZA‘s Soul Temple Records and hit the link to pre-order the full length album in digital, CD or vinyl flavor.
