Producer Bobby Krlic has released music for the Stever Hoover-directed film, set at the collapse of the Soviet Union
The Haxan Cloak’s music always feels pregnant with threat; darkness and murk are the domains in which he stalks. That said, this piece, entitled The End, reveals new levels. A muscular assault on the nerves, it pulses with an inescapable, baleful energy. It’s also an impressive example of Krlic’s mastery of texture and mood. Following his last album as The Haxan Cloak, he’s been credited with production on several albums including by Björk and HEALTH, and film scores seem like a natural fit for his production style. Almost Holy is his third film credit.
Almost Holy, set at the collapse of the Soviet Union, centres on a pastor running a rehabilitation centre for street children following the fall of the Soviet Union. Clearly the bleak reality of that environment is well matched to Krlic’s sonic disposition.
