HEPTAEDIUM is an artificial child of a world in ruins, maintained in its artificiality by multinationals trying to conquer space. Shaped by technology, it has implanted genes of STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, VILDHJARTA or MASTER BOOT RECORD.
Out of his infected incubator, the metal cold as death, the kid is a creature in the image of his time. An offshoot more human, with the body that jerks and the mouth that opens on a precipice. His song is destructured, icy, purely technical. One listens to it with the impression of hearing a machine scream, a creeping snake, an indefinite form moving forward by jerks.
This fourth release, « The Great Herald Of Misery », is a mechanical soundtrack, a work of hate filled with industrial samples of hyperspace, an eternal strangeness that screams from obsolete speakers made in USSR.

Our bard has much to tell us of the awakening of the system's components, and at our host's command is an arcane 32 bit synthetic orchestra. The many voices pronounce the tragedy of an innocent awareness encountering itself and the world - both with their own glories and write-errors; at machine-speeds. Naturally the transistors get a little hot in the process, and the contacts a little tarnished;
if you are into getting hard-cycled under load that is. Paul McKinnon

Cool album which mixes all sorts of genres with synthwave. Very heavy on post-rock and ambient influences with a cool roller-coaster of stylistic experimentation through the different tracks of the album. Ben Leathley
