Nitebreed (The Prince of Darkness) - Meditations On Death / Son Of Set / I Spit Upon Your Grave
By request, here's a relatively unknown 12" that I came upon a few months ago, Nitebreed aka The Prince of Darkness. I immediately thought of the other Night Breed on Charlemagne's Fortress Entertainment label, but this is nothing of the sort. Dark evil subject matter is the flavor here. If you dig the Gravediggaz, Flatlinerz, Necro or Esham then you'll probably want this. In fact, they diss the Gravediggaz on "I Spit Upon Your Grave" which features The Gravenigguhz. They call out all the "fake demonic niggas, talkin' a lotta bullshit about being back from the grave" and even mention a "grave digga" during the track. This record had to be made around '94-'98, when the Gravediggaz were making noise. Dope production and breaks used on all three tracks. Released on Reality Check Entertainment out of the 718, so I believe these cats are from New York. If you're feeling this, then you may like The Death LP that was posted earlier on my blog.
