Vincent (@stealsmokedfish) Every time I listen to "Become" I find something new to love that I didn't notice before. This release makes you work for your reward but it's plenty worth it. "Become" is what made me a fan of Sutekh Hexen in the first place, and I'm glad to finally own this beautiful tape. Favorite track: Five Faces of Deacay.

Fukface82 Five Faces of Decay: Dark, relentless, scathing, punishing vortex. Asshole in next car over rolls up window in disgust. Laughter and Joy.

The Voice: The Void: Sinking abyss, soul screaming, stripped flesh, joyful terror, prismatic nightmares, death.

@CelticFrosty Hypnotic, noisy black metal that succeeds in putting the listener into a trance-like state. Headphones and a dark room a must. Favorite track: Five Faces of Deacay.


A harrowing void of smoldering chaos summoned by the Bay Area's absolute masters of total black metal/noise aural desecration. Originally released on 1/4" tape reel by Auris Apothecary, Become centers on vortex, repetition, and inducing trance-like states. This release serves to bridge the gap between Behind the Throne LP (2012) and the Monument of Decay EP (3rd quarter of 2013).


released May 20, 2014

This final installment is presented as a limited c30, re-mastered for tape/CD by James Plotkin, and bearing artwork and layout by Kevin Gan Yuen / with source photography by Patricia Cram.
