THE LOVECRAFT SEXTET’s forthcoming album, „Miserere„, is the deepest, bleakest, most contemplative emission to-date from prolific composer Jason Köhnen (CELESTIAL SEASON, BONG-RA, MANSUR, ex-THE KILIMANJARO DARKJAZZ ENSEMBLE). This mesmerizing new long player is the devilish counterpart to the operatic chamber jazz-noir of 2021’s „In Memoriam“ and the aural embodiment of the artist’s research into philosophy, antiquity, mythology and hermeticism.

Allowing a first glimpse into the coming long player, THE LOVECRAFT SEXTET unveil the album’s opener. ‚[Opus I]-Occulta‚ carefully assembles the musical ingredients for a classic Requiem à la Verdi with avantgarde and noisy tunes. Slowly and thoughtfully evolving, the harsh and grim temper of Black Metal interwoven with a subtle noir atmosphere and the grandeur of neo classical arrangements define the five-minute-long composition.
