Hedensk Hjerte Khonsu made me realize that fusion of electronic and black/death metal music can be done very well without losing its darkness and atmosphere. Pure dystopian madness 👏 can't wait for new release. Favorite track: Death of the Timekeeper.

Mark Lindhout Very varied, well-executed, eclectic. This record is indeed a good fit to the sci-fi theme.

The more extreme sections are much like Keep of Kalessin (Reclaim) meets up with The Amenta with a bit of Emperor.

Interspersed are a ton of Bowie-like ‘Low’-era synthesizer ambiences and gratuitous baritone vocals. Here and there a piece of popular music pops out, but it's never out of context.

Listen in its entirety!

Leif Eriksson Absolute varied track. Epic songs meet kick ass. Just Great. Favorite track: Visions of Nehaya.

about

Khonsu Bergen, Norway

Heavy guitars are slicing and crushing with stunning precision and elegance. Massive and thundering keyboards weave dense textures. Metal and Industrial collide to shape dark forms and structures. The falcon headed Egyptian moon-god KHONSU becomes incarnate. ... more
