Hasufel "Winter on the Hill Cumorah" C40 [CH-350]
Winter on the Hill Cumorah is a dark exploration into the history of the Mormon church and its founder Joseph Smith, whose death mask graces the cover of this album. Utilizing synthesizers, voice, kaval and Egyptian ney, Hasufel craft baroque experimental pieces with a distinct sensibility for songwriting. Field recordings and Helmut's own voice augment these missives, as perhaps heard seeping from the stone while ransacking the temple. Music for days spent searching for warmth in a damp crypt, or nights spent beneath the clouds among the
headstones of the churchyard.
Release date Feb. 13, 2020.
