Sekator Apocalyptic, unsettling industrial doom. Imagine if Dissecting Table started listening to GRIEF.... Favorite track: Redacted Repressed Recalcitrant.

Keenan Johnston Khost return with another offering of industrial doom metal which may be their best to date. The demeanor of their work is as painful as ever, but they've continued to refine their sound with each outing and the results are apparent here through the fusion of industrial ambiance and an impenetrable guitar tone (like a rusted, derelict version of Nadja) with ethereal female vocal lines and some new twists along the way. Relentlessly bleak and unforgiving, this is negative doom done right. Favorite track: Low Oxygen Silo.

about

"Governance" continues KHOST‘s immersion in themes of detachment and dissonance, and ruminates upon the exertion of wills that are not your own, and upon the ways to detect and trace the outlines of the presence(s) that may exert these daily wills upon you, day by day. It was written over the course of the 2016/17 Winter, during times of unease and sickness for the band, including one near-death experience. The resulting album is a hinterland of low resolution transmissions interspersed with broad concrete columns of distortion that loom suddenly from the dim landscape. Governance is like driving at night with your spirituality asleep at the wheel.

With demoralizing vocal terror, hypnotic nightmarescapes, frost-encrusted tones, and horrifying rhythms, KHOST’s Governance devastates the listener with nearly fifty minutes of entrancing yet hazardous tectonic doom-laced revulsion. Features guest appearances from Eugene Robinson (OXBOW), and Jo Quail, and includes a remix of the track 'Coven' by Tel Aviv artist Adrian Stainburner.
