Khlyst - Chaos Is My Name (2006)
Khlyst was a one-off project formed by James Plotkin of Khanate (duh) and Runhild Gammelsæter, vocalist for the great, short-lived Thorr's Hammer. Musically, it's difficult to pin down with a simple description -- as I am wont to do -- but can be largely summed up by its first two tracks: the deranged burst of cacophonous guitars and vicious, banshee-like shrieks that opens the album, and the eight minutes of cavernous, ghostly dark ambient that follows.
The song names are all Roman numerals, I-VIII, so no need to list 'em out.
A voice means you get cut
Don't you talk
Don't you move
