We’re truly honored to welcome US Black Ambient veterans Sutekh Hexen to the fold. Both defiant and meditative, their latest self-titled full-length and first studio album furthers the project’s inquiry into opposition, endurance, and paradox. Both hypnotic and cruel, these ten highly charged tracks transgress yet again any previously imposed boundaries while upholding their raw ethos at its root, and at times defying the listener's expectations altogether. Though tempestuous as ever, with this work, Sutekh Hexen reaches across thresholds and thrusts longtime listeners into redefined spaces: haunted disorientation, surreal agony, the distress of buried forces surfacing, a revelation of black tongues. Each track is a rite of clandestine horror through a distillation of power-ambient, industrial, and black metal deconstructionism. This is a new era of Sutekh Hexen, and it is a sharpening of their blade, a merciless lucidity. LET THERE BE LIGHT.

Another juggernaut of an album, brought to us by the brilliant minds in Cryo Chamber's lineup. Like its brethren, Shub-Niggurath sucks you into another world--one where the veil is so thin, simply opening your eyes will let the madness in. I don't know where else we can go from here, Lovecraft-wise, but I hope these collabs never stop. CyhAnide
I slept on this album for far too long! After finally downloading it, I quickly realized what a beast of a recording it is. The album cover perfectly sets the scene for this Eastern infused dark ambient recording, which is becoming one of my favorite Cryo Chamber collaboration releases! I highly recommend this one!!
