Long before Korn and Limp Biscrap... in the days before Crazy Town and Linkin Park, XL was doing rap and metal. I think he did it pretty well. Though this disc is a bit more thrash than it is a rap fusion. There are a lot of guests as well. Jimmy Brown from Deliverance and Super C from S.F.C. to name a few.

A young man named Joshua recently commented on my other blog about XL. He said, "I saw your review of XL & DBD, but the website wouldn’t let me comment on it. Anyay, XL (Todd Stevens) is a friend of mine. “Live from Ninevah” despite it’s title is a studio album and it’s more mainstream hard rock with no rap vocals. It reminds me a lot of Alice In Chains. XL also put out a totally rap CD, no rock at all. I also have a handful of independent CD’s and demos that he gave me. One is even his praise and worship band “Psalt”." Cool info!

Useless Fact: I guess these guys did another album called Live at Ninevah or something but I never saw hide nor hair of it.
