INFO: A dual-album collection featuring the earliest works of Charnel House, recorded and released in extremely limited quantities on Sygil Records in 2010. Although later formed into a male/female duo with a slew of releases under their belt, these first two albums - both nameless - consisted of the solo audio experimentations of Adam Sommer in his most primitive form.
Recorded straight to cassette on an analog 8-track mixer, Voiceless Hymns contains almost an hour of dissonant, hazy guitar melodies performed asynchronously over drum blasts and eerie samples. With a fidelity that pays homage to the bleakest of production styles, the sound spectrum travels between the freeform nature of avant-garde and the churning, rotten tones of black metal.
PACKAGING: Transparent red cassette shell with black hand-stamped titles contained inside a linen drawstring pouch with silkscreen-printed art on the front and back. Includes insert laser-printed on red cardstock + fragments of bones inside miniature vials.
FORMAT: cassette C70 [TYPE II - Cobalt]
