Black Knight’s new album, Almighty, comes out in stores on June 16.
Artist: Black Knight
2015 release, the third album by these Wu-Tang Clan affiliates. The Almighty is the follow up to their critically-acclaimed album Medieval Chamber. This release was produced by former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist and songwriter John Frusciante. The Almighty features guest apperances by RZA, Frusciante, Prodigal Sun, Leggezin, ROE, Kinetic, Phoenix Flame, Trickfinger, and The Reverend Willy Burks. One of the many Wu-affiliates to debut on the The Swarm compilation, The Black Knights was originally associated with the group North Star (also from California) with whom they recorded as Black Knights Of The North Star. However, the groups have since separated. In 2001, the Black Knights released their debut album Every Night Is A Black Knight with limited distribution, and also reunited with North Star for the closing song (titled “Black Knights Of The North Star”) on North Star’s debut album. In 2005, they re-released their debut to worldwide distribution. Member Doc Doom was shot and killed in Compton CA on February 11, 2007. Rugged Monk and Crisis carried on and have recorded a trio of albums with Frusiante.
