“A churning, smouldering heap of hellish goodness.” — Revolver Magazine
San Francisco duo My Heart, An Inverted Flame share their new single, a collaboration with viral “Fairy Metal” star Banshee, today via Revolver Magazine. Hear and share “The Blood of The Heartless (Detritus)” HERE. (Direct Bandcamp.)
About the collaboration:
A gloriously unnatural union. A mutual appreciation forged in sound. Long enamored with the enigmatic Banshee, MHAIF requested a sonic alliance, and were presented with a set of vokills both harsh and haunting, a harrowing, emotional autopsy of raw, unfettered, patriarchal subversion, given life as true-hearted epic black metal worship, albeit with a uniquely modern skew — a ghoulish/girlish shriek rife with kultish mystery and smoldering fury. MHAIF then endeavored to create an appropriately ferocious and feral setting for that singular, savage voice, adding atmospheric heft in pursuit of an appropriately punishing delivery method for Banshee’s howled screed, culminating in “The Blood of the Heartless (Detritus)” — a pummeling and provocative, brutal and nuanced exploration of modern sonic extremity.
About the band:
My Heart, an Inverted Flame, the synth-doom duo of Andee Connors (A Minor Forest, Common Eider, King Eider) and Marc Kate (I Am Spoonbender, Never Knows) eschew traditional doom weaponry (i.e. guitar and bass) entirely, to generate something at once doom-adjacent, but at the same time, wholly other: a series of devastatingly heavy, seismic rituals conjured up via Connors’ caveman-crush drumming and Kate’s blown out, wall-of-sound synthesizers. The result: an art-damaged, cosmos-destroying, wildly psychedelic rite of dolorous droning dirgery, churning, black hole heaviness and sublime, cinematic annihilation.
The single will be released digitally and also on a limited edition lathe cut 8″ vinyl picture disc. Pre-orders for the vinyl single are available HERE.
