(Re)Collection #35: Resplendent III: Casket City Wolves
Updated: Mar 31
At the tale end of 2003, I completed Casket City Wolves. It was and is my favorite EP from the trilogy. I am partial to how it takes elements of I and II and combines them. It moves the ideas forward.
If I had to pick a favorite song, it wold be Judas Priest Cul de Sac. It is mournful and hopeful at the same time. Those are my benchmarks.
I had the privilege of Ben and Tim from Red Red Meat and Joe from Califone playing on 3 tracks. I forgot about that until just now as I typed this in. Pretty amazing.
