Album Notes
Those Poor Bastards surround themselves with organs, pianos, and drums to create a terrible picture of mankind's impending doom. The vocals are drowned in reverb and piano melodies swirl like drunken vultures in an abandoned church. It's time to suffer friends. The plague is here.

"Unsettling gothic gospel altercations spun and thickened with a dark angst and a rustic atmosphere. Coarse vocals are set amidst a haunting cacophony of vintage instruments and cantankerous rhythms." - Maximum Ink Magazine

"Imagine Death himself plopping his ass down at your campfire with his pal and bandmate, Desperation, and they break out in song. What do you think that would sound like? I am gonna say Those Poor Bastards is pretty fucking close.
Turning down the country part of their doom-country sound to concentrate on the doom, I would be inclined to say that if there ever was to be a serial killer convention, The Plague would be the soundtrack. While this is probably their best effort to date, TPB still aren't for delicate ears. If you're in the mood for the sounds of heavy reverb, organs, filth and disease, then The Plague has what you're ailing for." – REAX Music Magazine.

The Plague
TPB have outdone themselves. "The Plague" is the obvious (but only after hearing it) next step in their progression. Launching from the wretched, wicked, brilliance of the goth country offerings of their recent past, TPB branch into a million diefferent (terrifying) sounds, including, what I believe to be, a Hammond organ. The work is, simply, perfect, from beginning to end.
If you've liked their work to this point, you will love "The Plague."

Killer Record
I've been a big fan of Those Poor Bastards for along time. And I think that this is there best record to date. I'm not sure if I would even call this a country record. I think it sounds more like a record that Nick Cave's old band The Birthday Party would put out if they were doing country. This is a dark and creepy record and its well worth the price.

So if your thinking of buying it just do it. You will be happy that you did.
