"Due to the fact the forthcoming album by The Haxan Cloak has now been pushed back to early 2013 we thought we'd give you a small insight into what you can expect, so here's a preview of album track 'The Mirror Reflecting II"

Shame this album has been delayed, I really like his Observatory and Latitudes releases. I just bought his first album, I was quite shocked at how different it sounds, really dark ambient

Well that was dark as fuck. Kind of continues on from the first album rather than the stuff he's done inbetween, which I'm a little disappointed by but only a little. Will be buying.

My only slight gripe, was that after a while it seemed to be a bit samey. But I think more listens would perhaps reveal more depth.

 

I also like Haxan Cloak because he's very low on the radar, even here on watmm there are very few replies. And I always like that.

Agreed, not so much talk of him here but he's getting some higher profile attention, like Pitchfork, he's been on plenty of top lists from last year (Amoeba Music and some others) w/ the fucking amazing ...The Men Parted The Sea To Devour The Water on Latitudes. I guess his mom was the northern DJ that suggested her friends, Soft Cell do a cover of Tainted Love. He himself also makes for a good story, working on music production w/ troubled youth. I hope he'll be around for a long time.

I think that's the best thing he's done and I was really hoping he would continue in that vein rather than reverting to the darker, more ambient style of his first album.

 

Anyone heard his Church of Synth remix?

Boomkat love records like this as they give them the opportunity to write paragraphs of total bollocks. Not that this record is bollocks (far from it) but you get my drift. An album like this has so much potential for Mister Boomkat to chat utter shite. In this day and age everyone can just log on and listen to the damn thing, so why do I need somebody droning on about The WickerMan, moors cloaked in fog and satanic rituals shrouded in candlelight and waxing moons?

 

I've always thought about starting a 'Write your own fictional Boomkat review' in The Music Discussion subforum. One day when drunk enough (and I remember) I'll do it.

there is no denying that they do write paragraphs of total bollocks on records that are bollocks.

they after all are trying to sell records.

 

i agree, there should be a debunk website for boomkat reviews,

 

the haxan cloak album is far from total bollocks indeed.

It was instant love at first note for me with this new album. The sounds are even more refined and brooding than last time, and it's just so dark it almost is hard to find the right mood for it. I want to listen to it more, but right now it's a sunday afternoon with the smell of spring in the air.. it'll be dark in a few hours though.

      Anyone else listening to this?
       
      I'm enjoying it so far. I had listened to the lead single 'Pandemic', link below, but couldn't really get into it on it's own. Rabit really sets the stage for it on the album.
       
      I love his abrasive sounds and melodies.
       
      I'm looking forward to listening to this one alot this winter.

      "The Body & The Haxan Cloak have announced the release of I Shall Die Here, which will be released through RVNG Intl on 1st April. It finds the duo teaming up with Bobby 'The Haxan Cloak' Krlic, for a record which promises to find "the tried and true sound of The Body cut to pieces, mutilated by process and re-animated in a spectral state by the newly minted partnership." Given Krlic's success at honing his sound to a stark, violent and often chilling form of electronic music - see last year's Excavation album - we suspect that the resulting album will be among the most viscerally unsettling things we'll hear all year.

      “Fis’s music, as complex and alien sounding as it can be, presents a challenge when trying to explain exactly what it sounds like. His tracks often have the ability to completely disorientate and absorb the listener, creating rhythms that constantly seem to be consuming one another, shifting before anyones had a chance to process them".
