Assassination in the Hashish Cathedral (Hikikomori Records)
Promo materials for Assassination in the Hashish Cathedral warn that the album contains
“dark poems of sick erotic visions, tortured screams in industrial landscapes,
occult murmurings and eerie whispers.” That about covers it. Kopecky, as usual,
plays moody, badass bass better than practically anyone else, and he even
contributes some veiled vocals here. Dimitrov, meanwhile, electrocutes
listeners with his arsenal of electronics.
Experienced collectively, the nine songs on Assassination in the Hashish Cathedral are hallucinogenic, morbid and terrifying as hell.
