Biography

One of the many Wu-affiliates to debut on the Wu-Tang Killa Bees: The Swarm compilation, this Californian group was originally associated with the group North Star (also from California) with whom they recorded as Black Knights Of The North Star. However, the groups have since separated. The group originally consisted of Crisis(The Sharp Shoota), Doc Doom, The Rugged Monk and Holocaust, however Holocaust has since left the group to concentrate on his solo recordings (he has also changed his name to Warcloud). In 2004, the Black Knights released their debut album Every Night Is A Black Knight with limited distribution, and also reunited with North Star for the closing song (titled “Black Knights Of The North Star”) on North Star’s debut album. In 2005, they re-released their debut to worldwide distribution through CHAMBERMUSIK.Com. Member Doc Doom was shot and killed February 11, 2007. Now teamed up with the West Coast Killa Beez and the new crew The Indovizualz to feature on the Indovizualz debut album in 2010. With the anticipation of the latest project, The Black Knights have been working hard appearing on RZA “Digi Snacks” in 2008. Their song “Caught up” was in the 2007 TV anime Afro Samurai in episode 3 with slightly different beats & added violin than the original mix.

    The Almighty might be even better than Medieval Chamber. JF influence is strong.

    Fenix_7's Radiohead t-shirt explains his opinion.

    I'll just ignore all the soft suburbian frusciante fans who probably wouldve preferred medieval chamber w/out crisis & the rugged monk, cause youzall herbs. Its a dope album nevertheless, but Doc Doom is missed... & I can't help to think that it'd be a smart move to invite Holocaust a.k.a. Robot Tank a.k.a. Warcloud for a collab or two.. He left Black Knights in 2001 but on good terms so it shouldve been possible. His more esoteric lyrical style wouldve been amazing to these beats. But frusciante proly never knew of his existance

    I never really loved hip-hop, but It's sooo good stuff. Waiting for new album.

    After many listenings, the album has grown from good to fucking good. I can't wait for the sequel, which is supposed to be even better. Not even less exited than for next JF album.

    Please John Frusciante, produce more hip-hop.

    Very nicely surprised by the album, John's print is very obvious. It's not like if it was his album, but we're not far from a track like FM from Letur-Lefr.

    "Almighty Black Knights" or "House Party In Compton" are better than a lot of the more-listened songs on here. They're playing Rock The Bells 2012 today!
