Khlyst  


Khlyst is the latest project headed up by James Plotkin, who's been involved in all sorts of projects over the years and was most recently seen in the late Khanate. Pretty much everything Plotkin has been involved in is some sort of extreme noisefest, and Khlyst is no exception, if anything this is even less structured and more out-there than his previous works. He does most of the work here himself, save percussion by his old Khanate bandmate Tim Wyskida and a quite chilling vocal performance by one Runhild Gammalsaeter -- her growls, shrieks, moans, and assorted tortured voices make for a rather harrowing listening experience. Musically, it's drone-ish, at times ambient and at other times rather cacophonous. Really a pretty bizarre project and clearly tailored to a select few -- traditional metalheads probably aren't going to get too much out of this.
