Lingua Ignota & Russian Circles on '6 Best New Songs Out Right Now' // Revolver 

Lingua Ignota - "Butcher of the World" 
It's hard to categorize exactly what Lingua Ignota, a.k.a. Kristin Hayter, does in her music. But one thing's for sure: it's always a wild ride. On her latest single, "Butcher of the World," Hayter marries completely disparate sounds, styles and musical elements into one strikingly weird new form. It opens with a film score kind of overture with her voice shrieking some incredibly harsh lines as a counterpoint. As the song progresses, she introduces operatic vocals to the mix, which take this extremely unsettling — and utterly transfixing — track to a whole new level. It's a total experience.


Russian Circles - "Arluck" 
Russian Circles' new track "Arluck" is complex and engaging, making it easy to get wrapped up inside the intricate layering of the trio's straightforward but hypnotic sounds. Kings among the heavy instrumental scene, the band continues to impress with their ability to create new interesting channels through well-trodden musical territory and move seamlessly between scenes and genres with their near-universal appeal.

Kristin Hayter is having a moment. Almost two years after the release of her second album as Lingua Ignota, the mighty All Bitches Die, the momentum only seems to be rising. In the past year, the Providence-based artist has been on tour with The Soft Moon, The Body, and fellow Rhode Islanders Daughters, and contributed vocals to Full of Hell’s new record, Weeping Choir, to name just a few things. 

And honestly, thank god. Hayter is a true force. She’s into power electronics, death industrial, and black metal, and mixes in baroque classical, liturgical references, and folk music for a seriously harrowing, overwhelming effect. She sings about power and abuse and shame and burning it all down, and calls her stunning songs “survivor anthems,” which they surely are. Her MFA thesis was titled “BURN EVERYTHING TRUST NO ONE KILL YOURSELF,” and she has described her intense live performance as “an exorcism.” 

The opener of All Bitches Die, “Woe to All (On the Day of My Wrath),” is a fifteen-minute masterpiece that will get you hooked on Ignota. Hayter spends the first five minutes screaming, before her gorgeous singing voice sets in and she starts pleading to a master, “Don’t drag me to a sea of flame.” Then, in a subtle and exquisite flip, she is the master. “The teeth of seven thousand men / Adorn my silver crown,” she sings, her voice aflame. “Woe to all who inhabit the earth,” she repeats later, as it all comes crashing down around her, chimes amok, beat stomping. “For now I walk among you.”
