BOK Darklord in Unwashed Territoires ‘Albums Of The Year’

Our BOK Darklord release ‘Lulu’ has landed in Unwashed Territories‘ ‘Albums Of The Year’ list, coming in at #3 in a list that also includes Sun Araw and Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

Blog author Mark Whitby championed the release on his UK-based Dandelion Radio show on its release, and the record clearly made an impression as he was pulling together his end-of-year list.  He notes:

“BOK Darklord – a merging of the considerable creative juices of Lucas Darklord and Buttress O’Kneel – took on such a task and from it created one of the best, and most original, albums of 2012.   Via the simple but effective recource of simply taking a load of Metallica tracks, a load of Lou Reed tracks, and coarsely ramming them together, they recreated Lulu, transforming it from a derided piece of crap into a visionary masterpiece. The recording, in all its harsh glory, can be downloaded for nothing from Australia’s Wood & Wire label, a strong contender for label of the year.”
