If Avant-Garde week didn’t tip you off, we’re always up for a bit mind bending experimental music, especially when it makes us look forward-thinking and progressive (read: pretentious).
Jute Gyte is precisely that, not pretentious, but completely mind-bending and disorientating music. Described by fellow contributor Nayon as ‘microtonal black-ish metal with oldschool Burzum-esque vocals’, this one-man project utilises 24-tone guitars to create a swirling off-kilter atmosphere that brings to mind all the darkest and deranged moments of Deathspell Omega and Mitochondrion.
It’s not for the faint of heart, finding your bearings in this record is nigh impossible but I’m on my third full listen through and it’s still presenting new parts that I hadn’t managed to catch before. This is for fans of all things weird and wonderful and for those with tastes a little darker and left of path, it’s not an easy listen but it’s definitely one of the most intriguing and morbidly fascinating things I’ve heard this year.
