Hellenica made his first appearance on Somewherecold Records with the incredible collaboration with thisquietarmy that came out in April. That has led to a brand new Hellinca album out today!Hellenica’s newest album invites the listener on an audio journey that is inspired by and intended as an imaginary soundtrack to accompany the 1985 barbaric western novel Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy.
These eleven, bite-sized ambient instrumentals pull the listener into a world of death, hallucinations, blood and guns, creating a surreal backdrop that accentuates not only the book’s gothic-western qualities but the character’s introspective journeys through the desert, using twangy electric guitars, tape machines, synthesizers, and drum machines instead of banjos and harmonicas.
Hellenica‘s release begins the releases for the last 4 releases of 2021 here at Somewherecold Records. Get a copy of Blood Meridian and add some back catalog or pre-orders to your order to save on shipping. Blood Meridian is available on CD and digital.
