DIE HEXEN - THE GARDEN OF UNEARTHLY DELIGHTS
David Holmes was drawn to DIE HEXEN by their “magical sensibility that has both shades of dark and light, which is something that always appeals to me in music”. After featuring in his edition of the famed Late Night Tales compilation with a take on the original suicide song ‘Gloomy Sunday’, DIE HEXEN returns to expand upon their dark ambient journey towards transcendence with an eagerly awaited debut album.
DIE HEXEN’s genre eschewing synth driven compositions draw inspiration from the disturbing beauty of Hieronymus Bosch’s artwork and several brushes with death, evoking a spirit who traverses realms of the underworld to bring forth knowledge of an Ancient past and in doing so, to reveal the not so distant future.
The Garden of Unearthly Delights transports the listener through strange visions of darkness, beauty, creation, destruction, death & rebirth. An exorcism of body, gender, tribe towards a place of ultimate transcendence.
Somewhat of a polymath, DIE HEXEN has already shown their prowess with live performances part music/part performance art spectacle, as an avant-garde filmmaker and as an award-winning multi-instrumentalist, sound designer and film scorer.
