    While [pitch dark, occult-inspired music] might sound a bit novelty or even kitschy at first, it makes more sense once the initial discord wears off.

    It's all appropriately spooky, though Cowgill's tendency to "sing" like Mark Lanegan doing an impression of Tom Waits suffering from laryngitis can be a bit of a distraction, obscuring some of the gothic weirdness of his songs.

    Rather than referring to primal transgressions, however, Cowgill refers to the performative transgressions of earlier musicians. There is nothing wrong with this approach, and yet there is something about King Dude's particular gloss on neofolk that I find naggingly inauthentic.
