The Haxan Cloak: “The Mirror Reflecting (Part 2)”

A sliver of the Haxan Cloak‘s “The Mirror Reflecting (Part 2)” crept out toward the end of last year, via a short clip from Bobby Krlic’s new label home, Tri Angle. It was an appropriate way for newcomers to get acquainted with Krlic’s work under the Haxan Cloak name, offering just enough scorched-earth desolation without dragging listeners too far down into his pit of anxiety and horror. Now, the full piece has emerged, and it more than lives up to expectations. “Mirror” is dense and suffocating, stretched out over seven minutes that feel like you’re watching someone’s dying breathe seep out in agonizing slow motion.

Krlic has promised a broader range of influence on his forthcoming second album, but this feels more like a refinement of what came before, a natural widening of his vision of a world where drone rock, horror soundtracks, and creepy Chris & Cosey electronics work in sick tandem. At times it’s hard to imagine what slight Krlic suffered to make him slide down here, but he does have some company. The closest contemporary comparison is Blackest Ever Black signings Raime, who operate with a similarly numb feeling, in a place where you can almost see the life draining from their veins.
