HVILE I KAOS Black Morning, Winter Green
California-based black metal chamber artist Hvile I Kaos — Norwegian for "to rest in chaos" — is an abnormality in the respective worlds of extreme metal and classical music.
Self-identified as "black ritual chamber musick," the project's soundscapes defy all genres and conventions by confronting the listener with the darkest recesses of being, both within and without.
With an uncompromising ritualistic presentation, multi-instrumentalist Kakophonix readies his magick for Black Morning, Winter Green; a powerfully dark and emotional epic due out Dec. 6 via Red Nebula.
Nearly ten years in the making, the EP's three movements encapsulate the haunting and outerworldly influence that has gripped the project since its inception, and should be considered a pivotal exchange with the acasual.
Mastered by Brent Vallecfuoco (Xanthochroid), the EP's layout was designed by Jeff Wilson (Chrome Waves, ex-Wolvhammer) and the cover art was drawn by Satanic artist Erica Frevel.
