Reverend Kristin Michael Hayter (FKA Lingua Ignota)
Perpetual Flame Ministries
The newly anointed reverend has shed her previous skin and turned to the church, delivering a warped and demented gospel that twists logic and is caked in crimson blood - take a deep breath and submit yourself to be 'Saved!'.
a rapturous evangelical gospel and country record cut through The Caretaker's lens and allowed to go more than a little feral. 'SAVED!' is an apocalyptic revelation on the complex, sometimes ugly, always nonlinear process of healing. Herein, Reverend Kristin Michael Hayter documents an earnest attempt to achieve salvation through the tenets of charismatic Christianity, focusing on the Pentecostal-Holiness Movement, which dictate that one’s closeness to God is demonstrated through transcendental personal experience. Sonically and thematically, the record is both a logical conclusion to and a significant departure from Hayter’s previous work as Lingua Ignota.
Mirroring her personal evolution away from pain, she sheds the moniker that made her successful for its unflinching expression of lived trauma and instead builds herself anew, claiming her full given name, determined to see value within. Musically, while she continues to use historical avant-garde technique and formal constraints superimposed over accessible frameworks, she also strips down her instrumentation and degrades audio to provide a sense of musicological antiquity. Similar to Lingua Ignota, the record is steeped in pathos, but now the wrath of God gives way to His deliverance: “His boundless love shall make you whole.”
