Salem is an occurrence of allusions, devotion and result.

“…On May 30th, 2014 Sutekh Hexen performed with several other bands at the Wisp House, a former nunnery located in Salem, Oregon. It was early the next morning; sleep had settled over the neighborhood. The party was winding down and the house had become quiet except for a few people having conversations here and there. I was preparing my Thermarest and thinking how nice my sleeping bag was going to be when I heard sounds starting to emerge from the basement again. I looked at my “bed” and started rummaging through my pack for my recorder. I put some fresh batteries in and looked at my phone, “I should be sleeping” I thought to myself as I sat down on the stairs and pushed record. One by one each of the guys came downstairs…”

Salem is a live, impromptu field-recording by GreySun Records which provides a rare window into the improvisational and un-scripted creative realms of Sutekh Hexen. Finding the collective at their most forthright and primitive to date, Sutekh Hexen conjures something entirely original within their own construct. Upon completion came reflection and context, which yielded a challenging and equally commanding release in six movements.
