HILLBILLIES IN HELL VOLUME 10: COUNTRY MUSIC’S TORMENTED TESTAMENT (1952 – 1974)
Come join the Reaper…
Fiery Judgements, Rapturous Apocalyptic Revelations and Death’s Icy Grip. This Brim-stoned collection of weathered mountain-prophets and battered backwoods-poets features Angelic Voices, Infernal Visions and Gospel Redemptions, Bluegrass Exultations and heartfelt Sinful Lamentations. Most often waxed on marginal labels and distributed in penurious amounts, these Troubled Troubadours sing of scalding Hellfire Flames, tortured Satanic Slaves and pragmatic Afterlife Options.
Songs of Inspiration. Songs of Desperation.
Years in the making – ‘Hillbillies In Hell’ (Volume X) presents 16 timeless tribulations – chilling Hillside Hollers, Dark Angelic conversations and Death-cheating celebrations – sweet, virginal Declarations of Doom and the harrowing, final silence of The Grave gloom.
A buried cache of forgotten 45s – many of these sides are impossibly rare and are reissued here for the very first time.
Nobody gets out of here alive…
