Boomkat Product Review:
"Based in Turners Falls, MA, Flaming Dragons Of Middle Earth are the brainchild of visionary wheelchair-bound ‘band shaman’ Danny Cruz, who leads an ensemble of rotating non-musicians, artists, oddballs, kids with Down Syndrome, etc in weekly jams at a community resource centre, playing what he describes as ‘Mud Lightning Metal’. Cruz is heavily into Sun Ra, Captain Beefheart and Roky Erickson and has a fascination with zombies, punk rock, metal, horror movies and the aesthetics of the free form freak. The Seed Of Contempt is the first available document of their wild reign, capturing a bunch of jaw-dropping sessions recorded onto cassette between 2007 and 2010. Cruz’s vocals are somewhere between Nate Young of Wolf Eyes and Don Van Vliet and his cosmo-philosophical lyrics touch on cartoons, anarchy, radical politics and evil in the night."
