Bobby Krlic came virtually out of nowhere to release his self-titled debut LP, easily one of the best albums of 2011. Drawing on his training in classical composition and command of bowed string instruments, but also his enduring love of noise, avant-metal, power electronics and industrial music, the young Londoner has crafted a hugely absorbing work, one that has justly earned comparisons with artists like Sunn O)), KTL, Raime, Prurient and Godspeed You Black Emperor, and is perhaps even superior in terms of acoustic depth and textural sophistication.
Excavation, Krlic's second full-length as The Haxan Cloak, was released this year through the revered Tri Angle label.
