Those Poor Bastards play miserable and primitive old-time music. Lonesome Wyatt (guitar, vocals) and The Minister (banjo, bass, etc.) are both legally certified holiness preachers.

“Those Poor Bastards are the best gothic country I have heard yet to this day. The depressing gloomy vocals coming out of this drifter named Lonesome Wyatt has hints of Marilyn Manson to Nick Cave, Throw Rag and maybe even a hint of a demented Adam Ant with a shot of a pilled up Johnny Cash… And The Minister is backing up Lonesome Wyatt with a style that is a cross between erie strung out folk music with a creepy blend of The Nightmare Before Christmas!!!!!!!!!”
Hank Williams III

“Even in a crisp digital format, the new Songs of Desperation sounds as if Harry Smith dug it out of some trunk in a long-abandoned Mississippi shack that was once shared by The Cramps, Nick Cave, and The Louvin Brothers. The miserable, primitive duo carries on as if the graveyard is but a step ahead, the devil a step behind, and there’s hell to pay in every direction.”

    I claim the problem with Behold The Abyss is quite the contrary, I just cannot see why is the album vital to the novel and vice versa. Even though both are based on the same background, their overlapping is quite superfluous.

    I can understand if people feel that Behold The Abyss suffers from not standing on it's own. It relies on another piece to create the full meaning of the work. But, all in all, it is a beautiful piece of work, the book and the album together are right up there with the best of Those Poor Bastards.
