With great honour, we present our debut album: a specially commissioned soundtrack to the Blekkmetal film. Conceived, recorded, mixed and mastered in the space of four days in early June 2019. Play loud. And thank you for listening. Album Cover Photo: Fløibanen by Vivek Venkatesh, Bergen, Norway, April 2015.
The Blekkmetal film (2016) is an independent Canadian-Norwegian concert documentary about the one-off music, film, tattoo and art festival held in Bergen, Norway in November 2015. As the producers contemplate a commercial release of the film in 2020, they have commissioned electronic improvisation outfit Landscape of Hate to score its soundtrack. On June 3 and 4, 2019, Landscape of Hate holed themselves at the Autoland studio in Montréal, Canada to record the soundtrack to the Blekkmetal film - no rehearsals, no structure, no fun, no trends.
