Infinite Hex Unleashes New Album 'Simulacrum & Stimuli'

Chris Cudby / Monday 23rd August, 2021 12:50PM

The project of Te Whanganui a Tara modular synth / guitar guru Otis Chamberlain, Infinite Hex's synapse-rewiring new album Simulacrum & Stimuli has been unleashed upon the world. Melting minds to liquid metal goo with an ever-changing barrage of future-shocked electronics, riff-heavy axe wizardry and maniacal vocal yowls, the 15 track offering doles out its cacophonous pleasures in mainly morsel-sized portions, with ambient passages providing space to catch breath — notably on eight minute atmospheric behemoth 'Where Brain Cells Go To Die'. There's a staggering variety of textures and tones dished up throughout, the artist provided insight into the process of creating Simulacrum & Stimuli with an accompanying statement over on Infinite Hex's Bandcamp page...

"...The more I’ve integrated modular synthesizers into my studio and material, the more synchronicity I’ve found between the processes of writing both metal and electronic music. Conventions dissolve and the distance between things like a “sick riff” and a “cool sequence” disappears. Frequency Modulation equates Distortion. With added emphasis on randomization and ‘logic’ processes applied to rhythm, the worlds of chaotic metal and experimental electronic music often blur together and compliment each other in both structure and sound - it’s been a perfect marriage for INFINITE HEX."

'Simulacrum & Stimuli' is out now digitally and on limited edition cassette here via Zegma Breach Records.
