Sinuous, haunting and bizarre, ARKHETH’s music is extraordinary. There have been experimental black metal bands, but this is something else entirely. It’s a micro-fusion of all the different stylings the genre can encompass, brilliantly strung together in a seemingly twisted albeit seamless manner. It requires rare ingenuity to create music that is discordant and melodic at the same time. The addition of saxophone only ups the bizarre quotient and adds colour to the unhinged madness. Virtually peerless and transcending boundaries, this is black metal that is gorgeous in all its demented, intricate design.
