As July 7th approaches… Cage releases another joint off his upcoming album, Depart From Me, which you can pre-order here. After giving the album a listen I was taken back (expectantly) by the amount of rock influence in his music; but after a few listens I’ve grown to really appreciate the work he put into it. This is also coming from someone who listens to rock on a regular basis; so it’s definitely not for everyone, but it’s a good album regardless.
The follow-up to Hell’s Winter, his 2005 critically-acclaimed LP, Depart From Me continues Cage’s musical saga of a no-holds-barred, brutally autobiographical journey through his past and present. Plagued by abuse, institutionalization, drugs, and violence throughout his life, these nightmarish experiences have permeated his art and defined the music he makes today. Cage’s music is truly reflective of a reality far stranger than fiction.
