Hellvete – “Sint – Denijs” – [Blackest Rainbow Records]

Glen Steenkiste from Silvester Anfang produces what to me
sounds like three gigantic cathedral spheres. Deep drone
breaths plucked from the lung-hearts of harmoniums. Unlike
the recent Juppala Kaapio release these drones are not flecked
by field recordings or fingers or vocal focal points. Instead
they have an insistent purity that some will bathe in the
consistency of, and others will pine for more interference.
Still others will use these to mix into sets. Hmmm, honestly
I thought the music was 100% harmonium but online it suggests
a blend of bowed banjo, electric tampura and analog synth as
well. so the integration must is notably seamless. I wonder if
the song titles are the model numbers of harmoniums used
at the core? On the fine Blackest Rainbow label…
