Members of Khanate and Sunn 0))) Playing CMJ Fest

KHLYSTJim Plotkin and Tim Wyskida's (both x-Khanate) new band KHLYST debuts at Sin-e on Thursday. The band also features Sunn O))) collaborator and x-Thorr's Hammer vocalist Runhild Gammelsæter. The band has its first release out on Hydrahead and here is how Hydrahead describes the release: "Invoking an aesthetic amalgam of black echoes, night sweats, and necromancy, Khanate bassist James Plotkin (Phantomsmasher, ex-O.L.D.) and vocalist Runhild Gammelsæter (ex-Sunn O))),Thorr’s Hammer) set forth on a bleak journey beset with incubi, death convulsions, and abject hopelessness. Alternately harsh and beguiling, Chaos Is My Name is like waking up in the basement hospital of Jacob’s Ladder only to realize that the permanently disfiguring abuse you’re about to endure has already taken place. The rest of your brief, excruciating life will be spent as a hideously deformed flesh puppet, flailing helplessly under the high-pitched whine of various torture devices and experimental dental equipment, while seraphim sing in the distance, never once offering you their hand."
