The cleansing of the soul, the welcoming of death, the capacity to enter into communion with the Beyond: Sutekh Hexen hover over the last and lowest of musical emanations in the realm of subterranean silence.
The pleasant machinery of the myth concerning Sutekh Hexen should perhaps begin to be unpacked with the admission that mystical initiations of another kind can be achieved for few by conscious inquiry alone.
In severing the junction between the macabre and the grotesque, Sutekh Hexen are crafting a cumulative verbiage to residually haunt and reform the indeterminate nature of their melodies. Yet, to the enrichment and confusion of the subject, the Sutekh Hexen persuasion conceals what it appears to reveal.
The performance in question is not a ritual act but a manifestation of a poetic rhapsody, composed ad hoc to edify the sectary. Sutekh Hexen are advancing a new methodology to noise, one that bases itself on a platform of parasitic melancholia and continues to reject the primacy of sonic restraint.
Sutekh Hexen are embarking on their first tour throughout the United States given a unique opportunity to share spaces with highly celebrated acts including Jesus and the Mary Chain, Sunn O))), Built to Spill etc. at Hopsotch Music Festival in Raleigh, North Carolina. In an attempt to aid our travels, Sutekh Hexen would like to extend this campaign to those interested in our project in hope of some reciprocal support.
