“Question religion, question it all”
If you haven’t yet checked out Cult Classic, the new concept album from Detroit’s Denmark Vessey and producer Scud One, you’re missing out on one of the more intriguing and multi-layered releases of the year. The theme of the album is the use of organized religion to gain control over the masses and the message is delivered through a parable about an aspiring cult leader and his rise to power. It’s an ambitious project with a well plotted storyline, a creative feat that is rarely attempted these days, much less properly executed. We caught up with Vessey and Scud One to get a track-by-track breakdown of the album.
