/////////////////////////

A dual-album collection featuring the earliest works of Charnel House, recorded and released in extremely limited quantities on Sygil Records in 2010. Although later formed into a male/female duo with a slew of releases under their belt, these first two albums – both nameless – consisted of the solo audio experimentations of Adam Sommer in his most primitive form.

Recorded straight to cassette on an analog 8-track mixer, Voiceless Hymns contains almost an hour of dissonant, hazy guitar melodies performed asynchronously over pulsing drum blasts and eerie samples. With a fidelity that pays homage to the bleakest of production styles, the sound spectrum travels between the free-form nature of avant-garde and the churning, rotten tones of black metal.

– Transparent red cassette with black/clear labels
– Linen drawstring pouch with black silkscreen printed art on front and back
– Black laser-printed insert on red cardstock
– Fragments of bone inside miniature vials
