My Sweetest Revenge: Interview with Lingua Ignota // KERRANG! 

(Full Interview via KERRANG!)

“I’ve had a difficult time finding justice in the world, finding accountability for the people who have done harm to me… The music is my way of holding people accountable and finding justice. My way of finding revenge.” 

These are the powerful words of Kristin Hayter; a survivor of domestic abuse who channels her pain and aggression into Lingua Ignota, an ambitious, breath-taking project that incorporates everything from opera to noise. 

“I wanted to do something that was different, that was fresh and solely my vision,” she tells us from her home on the West Coast of the United States. “I didn’t want to adhere to any genre or categorisation where there are rules or limitations, I wanted to make something that was authentic and honest.”

“Take Tools Used Against You And Make Yourself Powerful”. Lingua Ignota On CALIGULA // New Noise Magazine 

(Full feature via New Noise Magazine)

“I wanted to look at the full spectrum of the depravity and the loneliness and the total despair and devastation and the rage and the psychotic anger and all of the things that accompany abuse of power,” says Californian multi-instrumentalist Kristin Hayter, better known as Lingua Ignota

Lingua Ignota has always taken a radical, resolute approach to themes of violence and vengeance, and CALIGULA, out via Profound Lore Records on July 19, builds on the evolution of the survivor at the core of this narrative. “A big part of this project is about transformation and about how survivors move through their experiences, how we move through our experiences,” Hayter explains. “I was looking at someone like [the Roman emperor] Caligula, who matches the depraved narcissism of certain political figures that we have today but who is also very similar to the behavior that we see in a lot of abusive people in intimate relationships and also might be reflected in how the survivor then behaves.”

Lingua Ignota – CALIGULA, Album of the Week // Treble 

(via Treble)

There’s no ignoring Kristin Hayter’s voice. She’s not so much a singer as an exorcist, her impassioned and intense, bordering on outright terrifying vocal presence can ably transform from an almost sacred beauty to abject terror in a single song. And hers, to be fair, tend to stretch more on the lengthier side—that Hayter’s compositions as Lingua Ignota take their time to resolve, to let the listener linger in the agony and fear for as long as they do, showcases just how difficult a thing it is that she does.

Interview with Dylan Carlson // Creative Independent 

(via Creative Independent)

Dylan Carlson is the guitarist and founder of the band Earth, which specializes in drone-based instrumental music. Since the band’s inception in Seattle in 1990, Carlson has worked with a vast array of collaborators—including such notable musicians as Kurt Cobain, Mark Lanegan, and Joe Preston. His work combines a vast and seemingly disparate array of influences, from heavy metal and Indian devotional music to country and North African trance. He also has a solo project called Drcarlsonalbion.
