Saturnalia – HULIQ

The Gutter Twins | HULIQ Mark Lanegan and Greg Dulli make up The Gutter Twins. Saturnalia, the first album from The Gutter Twins (in March 2008), has seen the near-mythic duo collaborate their strength to create what Pitchforkmedia.com has announced them as being “two of alt-rock’s greatest front-men.” Dulli has nicknamed this album: “the Satanic Everly Brothers” indicating it goes into the shadows far deeper than ever before. Saturnalia has a mystical, unpredictable and ultimately masterful approach that allows it to materialise and at the…

Saturnalia Makes Spin’s Best of 2008

The 40 Best Albums of 2008 | Spin Magazine Online No. 32 – The Gutter Twins Saturnalia No big surprise that the long-awaited collaboration between ’90s-vintage gloom kings Mark Lanegan and Greg Dulli wasn’t exactly the feel-good hit of the year. But the former’s narcoleptic, baritone moan and the latter’s mischievous, soulful wail give these mid-tempo dirges, awash in revelations and Revelation, a touch of grace that recalls their classic work without repeating it. The most upbeat moment: the synthy “Idle Hands,” in which the…

Saturnalia – Jackson Free Press

Jackson Free Press by Zach Thompson May 28, 2008 Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan have a consistently touch-and-go, seemingly fickle collaborative past. Lanegan appears here and there on Dulli’s Twilight Singers material, hardly at the helm, often in the background. The two have been flirting with the idea of The Gutter Twins for the past couple years, with news popping up here and there that Lanegan was touring with Dulli as The Gutter Twins. Their idea has culminated, finally, in their debut album “Saturnalia.” Like…

Saturnalia – RTÉ.ie Entertainment

RTÉ.ie Entertainment: The Gutter Twins – Saturnalia They’ve been teasing fans with their collaborations since The Twilight Singers’ ‘Blackberry Belle’ in 2003 and now, after what seems like forever, grunge’s two great survivors Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan satisfy every desire with the colossal ‘Saturnalia’. Longtime masters of sun-goes-down music, the duo have created one of those very rare albums that would make you happy to see shorter days. For either man each of these 12 journeys to the dark end of the street warrants…

Saturnalia – Junk Media

Junkmedia Rating: 4/5 Has Greg Dulli found religion? Its hard not to think so after hearing Saturnalia, the debut record from his long-in-gestation collaboration with Mark Lanegan, where the two dark lords of alt-rock sing of regret, redemption and, well, God. Practically every song is filled with religious and Biblical imagery, some literal album-opener “The Stations,” where lyrics about the Rapture butt up against the title itself, a reference to the Catholic Stations of the Cross and others, like the gorgeous “The Body,” more metaphorical….

Saturnalia – Harp (Full Review)

Harpmagazine.com Greg Dulli is a hot dog, a fast-talking soul boy whose giddy literate lyricism made his dippy punkish Afghan Whigs the oddball toast of Sub Pop’s early-’90s label establishment. By the time Dulli got to the harder, groovier stuff (literally, in regard to his addiction-addled chatter) of the Twilight Singers, he couldn’t shut the speed rapping even when slowing down for his best effort, 2006’s Powder Burns. Mark Lanegan is a slower-burning ember. But it’s a measuredly wordy brushblaze Lanegan’s tossed gasoline onto so…

Saturnalia – Green Bay Press-Gazette

The Gutter Twins’ sound matches name in ‘Saturnalia’ By Thomas Rozwadowski You won’t find a more appropriate new band name than The Gutter Twins. It’s music mired in grime, with spiritual imagery swirling amid the dark Gothic overtones and disparate vocals of alt-rock’s two most indulgent figureheads, Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan. The stellar collaboration has been several years in the making, and whatever led to its delay helped give the final product a real sense of purpose. From Lanegan that could probably be expected….

Saturnalia – Hofstra Chronicle

The Gutter Twins’ latest album was worth the wait By Tim Lee Hailed initially, albeit by themselves, as the “Satanic Everly Brothers,” the Gutter Twins finally delivered their long-awaited full length, “Saturnalia.” The group pairs the duo of Greg Dulli (Afghan Whigs, Twilight Singers) and Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, Queens of the Stone Age) in an early 90s grunge super group, or wet dream. Luckily or not, depending upon one’s sensibility, both artists have matured lyrically and musically leading up to the record. With a…

Saturnalia – Playback

Playback Magazine by Bob Gendron Music: 4.5/5 Sound: 4/5 “Must Hear” Rumored for more than five years and hinted at via a succession of collaborations, the prospect of the Gutter Twins – a partnership between inimitable vocalists Mark Lanegan and Greg Dulli – has until now existed as more of a tantalizing fantasy than a formal entity. Not that the pair hasn’t given reasons to believe. Both artists have histories of helping a brother out. Dulli assisted on Lanegan’s Bubblegum album and sat behind the…

Saturnalia – San Francisco Bay Times

San Francisco Bay Times By Don Baird The brilliant duo of Mark Lanegan and Greg Dulli I’ve had access to downloading much more music from the Internet lately, and there have been a few new releases by bands of interest. One that was garnering a great deal of attention when I was in London with a couple very well received live U.K. debut dates was The Gutter Twins, a long-time-coming collaboration between Mark Lanegan (of Screaming Trees, Queens of The Stoneage) and Greg Dulli (Afghan…
