It's hard to explain this EP. There's black metal, more traditional metal, ambient, drone... a whole bunch of things mixed together. But it works.
Favorite track: We Once Walked Upon These Coals (...To Save Us From Satan's Power Mix).
'Breed In Me The Darkness' stands as the aural/visual apex to an era for SUTEKH HEXEN. The two central tracks, as dense and intricate as any of the band's previous output, were turned over to ANDREW LILES to complete the vision of what these recordings meant. The incredible re-visioning of Liles takes the release to uncharted and undreamed of dimensions. Twinned with the photography of A.E. Csaky, with design by Kevin Gan Yuen (guitars/electronics), 'Breed In Me The Darkness' is one of the most astonishing and powerful ever releases on Aurora Borealis.
SUTEKH HEXEN hail from San Francisco, USA, and have been demolishing musical boundaries in extreme music, unlearning the traditions of black metal, since 2010. They have previous releases on Handmade Birds, Magic Bullet and Holy Terror.
ANDREW LILES is a sonic genius and a hugely prolific artist with numerous solo releases as well as works with The Hafler Trio, Faust, Nurse with Wound, and Current 93 among other. He is based in the UK.
Created in partnership with the Canadian noisemakers, the late legend's final collaborative LP enshrines his ability to lift joint ventures into otherworldly territory. Bandcamp Album of the Day Nov 8, 2021
