Been pissed off the folk world hasn’t produced any good murder ballads lately? Here’s a folk/rock crew giving over a whole album to a real life grisly murder in the late 1800s that happened in England. Adding elements of genre hopping that gives a Goth feel to the proceedings, the album length gives this a cinematic feel. Wild.
