“THE HIEROPHANT” EDITION: 1000 CD, 500 LP CATALOG NUMBER: HB-068 RELEASE DATE: SUMMER 2013 AVAILABILITY: COMING SOON "To listen to any of Burial Hex’s many releases, which have manifested across almost all known formats over the past nine years, is to commune with dark, deathly atmospheres that contrast elegant instrumentation and rhythms with entropic noise. Drawing on a wealth of influences, from 19th Century European chamber music to industrial, from the stories of HP Lovecraft to the Italian horror movies of the 70s, its sound provokes questing minds to ponder on the supernatural, the liminal space between life and death, or the many and varied traditions and rituals that preserve occult philosophies down the ages.
But all this is about to end as Clay Ruby, the multi-instrumentalist behind these chthonic and ethereal sounds, has stated that Burial Hex is to be laid to rest, permanently and imminently, as part of a preordained strategy that has informed all of its output from the very beginning. " –The Quietus"
This is album is amazing, I have heard it in various states, and this will truly be one for all time. Believe this. Thank you for your continued interest and support. - Kevin
