We’re proud to announce renewal of our near-ten year relationship with raw black power ambient ritualists Sutekh Hexen in announcing the band’s colossal new 2LP “P:R:I:S:M”, a full collaboration with Canadian nightmare-weaving enigma Funerary Call (AKA field recording and experimental soundscaping artist HarlowMacFarlane), to be released this summer in collaboration with our good dearest frequent co-conspirators from Europe CyclicLaw.
The massive fifty three minute 2LP, CD, MC, digital release has been anticipated by the tutting edge extreme music blog Everything Is Noise, who have premiered the song “Fractal:Void”, calling the track a “brooding and ominous piece of contemporary sonic art” – you can read the feature and checkout the track HERE.
With “P:R:I:S:M”, magisterial sonic-alchemists Sutekh Hexen and Funerary Call join forces to deliver a fully collaborative album of eight highly experimental tracks. Throughout this octonary journey, concepts and unseen source energies are refined into spectrums of deeper consciousness. The resulting narrative guides the listener through a vastness of (dis)charging energies, rebirth through dissolution, and harrowing harmonic passages in tremendous spaces. Inner-workings suspend transformations in time. Pushing their respective boundaries, Sutekh Hexen and Funerary Call initiate the listener with the crystalline, static miasma of the album’s opener ‘Meridian Øº’, only to enshroud them in the manifesting psychosis of ‘Infernal Folly’. The churning mysticism of ‘Perilous Shade’ offers temporal sanctuary, and ‘Toward the Eastern Gate’ calls forth tectonic-prophecies as the album’s centerpiece, tipping the scale into ‘Fractal: Void’—a blistering disarmament in a storm of guitars, scathing electronics, and the disembodied calls we all anticipate and fear. ‘Æscend Obsidia’ tests the preceding tension and overwhelms in shimmering radiance before declaring release in ‘Pangæa Ultima² (Dread)’. Closing with ‘Shores of Purgatory’, thresholds are breached anew with hectic guitar feedback, spectral synthesis and meditative melodic embellishments. Where the mirror blinds, the “P:R:I:S:M” offers vision—refractions of new perspectives, dissolving the shadow-self.
“P:R:I:S:M” releases officially July 14, 2023 on 2LP (for the Americas), digital and MC via Sentient Ruin, and on 2LP (for Europe), CD and digital via Cyclic Law and all formats are now pre-orderable globally via the respective label channels.
