Hecate’s Ascension Chamber

Hecate’s Ascension Chamber
Praxis 40/ZharkLP2 (2xLP in gatefold sleeve)
Praxis 40CD/ZharkCD0004 (CD)

The vinyl was packaged in luxury gatefold sleeve, the CD was in standard jewel case.

1000 copies each were manufactured in 2003/2004.

The second full length album by Hecate was again – like The Magick of Female Ejaculation a co-release by Praxis and Zhark International, the full catalogue number was Praxis 40/Zhark LP2 (for the double vinyl) or Praxis 40CD/ZharkCD0003 (for the CD edition)

The ten tracks are based on and inspired by the sephiroth of the kabbala/qabala, which is reflected in everything from the time signatures to the atmospheres and intensities. a serious conceptual work (hence vinyl and cd are identical) with depth and focus developing her sound ever further.

Features Papiro as guest musician on strings.

‘Ascension Chamber’

Hecate has long been the high priestess of occult tinged dark industrial drum and bass. Her twisting beats and morbid tones bring forth the dark and mysterious realms of Crowley and his ilk. While listening to Hecate’s “Ascension Chamber” you could swear blind that it’s being used as a portal for her devious demons to enter your realm and screw with the sounds of the universe. The depth and structure to the tracks is awesome, you think you can recognise sounds, but then they blend and bleed into another forever transforming and mutating, changing the very essence of the tunes. Outstanding.
