On this episode we have new music from Dernière Volonté, Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio, and The Human Voice. We also have some Coil and Electric Sewer Age and talk about my recent interview with Coil producer/engineer Danny Hyde. Also featuring Kristoffer Oustad, Cult of Youth, Theologian, and Gustaf Hildebrand.
Chaos Sedated returns with a new mix of industrial, dark ambient, and apocalyptic folk featuring Awen, Der Blutharsch, Rome, and more.
From the Heathen Harvest review of Awen – Grim King of the Ghosts:
This is a concept album, and per the promotional text it “stands as a sonic dedication to the ties that bind this world to the spectral” and is “rooted in the concept of the Grim Grey King.” The music and songs which Awen employ on Grim King of the Ghosts is successful at bringing this concept to fruition, with the overall album showcasing musical acumen, standout songs, memorable lyrics (in a variety of languages), and vocals that range from bombastic to seductive. Awen, helmed by Erin Powell and Katrin X—along with a plethora of other musicians including b9 InVid (from Et Nihil and the now-defunct, infamous industrial project Luftwaffe)—brings a musical diversity to Grim King of the Ghosts which ranges from haunting and unnerving to militant, mystic, and folky, while managing to keep each track’s sounds canonical for the entire experience.
