Tonight’s Listening: Hexenkraft/Hellfire Assault Battalion

Remember when you were a kid and you watched The Terminator and your overactive imagination would keep you awake imagining that red-eyed, chrome skeleton chasing you down? Eventually exhaustion would cover you like a wet blanket and pull you down into a fitful sleep. You knew the nightmare was coming but there was nothing you could do about it. Well, I’ve discovered the soundtrack to that nightmare and the composer is Hexenkraft, and I mean that as the utmost compliment.

Hellfire Assault Battalion is the lead single off of his upcoming EP, The Infernal Schism, and boy is it dark. It’s a nightmare fueled attempt to escape doom that is a foregone conclusion, but you run anyway. I’m very excited to hear what is to come, and if his previous EP, the self-titled Hexenkraft, is any indication of his talent, the nightmares have just begun. My recommendation? Hop on board now so you get to say you knew who Hexenkraft was before he blows up. Check out his Bandcamp for more!
