03 Raising Barrows
05 Хан Тəңірі
Formed in 2010, on second album ‘We Disappear’ Polish quartet HEGEMONE use an intensely personal interpretation of blackened post-metal to depict the never-ending process of change in all its terrifying beauty.
To a weighty base of thematic widescreen riffs and ardent vocals, the band fuses modernist black metal with hardcore fury, chiming post-punk chords, throat singing and elements of folk mysticism, impeccably-placed mournful synth lines and encapsulating electronic textures.
‘We Disappear’ revels in a transfixing use of repetition, the players adjusting, settling, shifting as they move from moments of introspective delicacy to titanic pinnacles of hymnal quality.
