The Haxan Cloak "Excavation" LP Review
I stumbled upon "The Haxan Cloak" by chance after hearing the bands music on a you tube video. I decided to go further and checked out the album entitled "Excavation." Composer and sole performer Bobby Krlic does a great job of taking the listener away to the dark realms of the human mind. Ominous synth lines mixed with heavy bass drops gives the album a more hypnotic feel and you can't help but become lost within the sounds. The uneasy sound glitches and various samples give the album a dark uneasy feel too it. Like the killer waits in the shadows as you wander the dark corridors of the maze. Manipulated field recordings give the album a silent hill sort of feel as it creeps up on you when least expected. The sparse melody lines definitely help ease the tension of the more darker sections of the music. I recommend listening to this one with the lights off to get the real dark feel for it.
