"Taking his mark from Scott Walker’s later discordant records – Krlic has made a frightening noise music for frightening times, its sheer visceral physicality presciently channeling the force of all recent grimness.” - NME 8/10
Tri Angle Records is very excited to announce the release of The Haxan Cloak’s eagerly awaited second album Excavation, to be released in North America on April 30 on CD and LP formats. Excavation will be available in all other international territories on April 15.
In 2011 with the release of his debut, self titled album, The Haxan Cloak, solo project of multi instrumentalist, Bobby Krlic, appeared seemingly out of nowhere with an impressively fully formed sound that blew away most anyone who heard it. Recorded over the space of 3 years The Haxan Cloak was a wildly ambitious fusion of malevolent strings, junkyard found-sounds and primitive percussion, Krlic’s grand ambitions transcending the fact that it was all recorded in a shed at the bottom of Krlic’s parent’s home in Wakefield, Yorkshire. In the two years since the release of his debut, Krlic relocated to London and began working on it’s epic follow up, and Tri Angle Records debut; Excavation.
