***repress***exploring mystic & occult audio space with cello, field recordings , violins, hand-made percussion & the human voice, this highly accomplished record is unbelievably the debut from the one-man noise/drone/weird project of bobby krlic. the depth & quality of ‘the haxan cloak’ is on a par with the works of ben frost/tim hecker & recalls the later, discordant works of scott walker : ‘tilt’ & ‘the drift’. combining elements of modern classical, film score & electronica with modern free folk & even metal sensibilities, the haxan cloak is a truly diverse album - incredibly powerful modern classical pieces , with stunning vocal performances from collaborator mikhail karikis. additional visceral power was gained thanks to the mastering of kris lapke, longtime cohort of nyc's hospital productions (home of prurient amongst others). highly recommended! “krilic has made frightening noise music for frightening times” 8/10 – nme.
