I’m just going to go ahead and say it: Blake Judd is a fucking dick.
The dude has a long standing history of fucking over friends and fans alike with fake promises of albums and merchandise to coax money out of them, all for the sake of his heroin habit. Krieg has spoke about this at length, and entire fan pages, websites, and various other methods were used to vent about his illicit and illegal activities.

But that stuff was slowly coming to light when he and his band of miscreants worked together in 2008 to drop an awesome album: “ASSASSINS: BLACK MEDDLE PART 1. “
