A: Enlightenment B: Endarkenment (Hint: There Is No C)

A: Enlightenment B: Endarkenment (Hint: There Is No C) by Ray Wylie Hubbard
Released: Jan 2010
Label: Bordello Records
With "Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother" generations behind him, the grizzled outlaw makes as death-rocking a country album as you'll find, crawling with repetitive deeper-into-the-gravel blues that are as mean as they are dark. After opening with psychedelic Middle Eastern drone, Hubbard piles up trudge-metal, Pentecostal gospel and opiated gloom casualties while watching the skies for tornadoes and biblical omens. The two most upbeat tracks include an alcoholic ode to naked ladies and mescaline, and a Springsteen/Lou Reed sound-alike empathizing with loose ladies whose lives get worse.
