More Info

"MInd Flare Media's first official release from Kristus Kut. Butterfly King showcases Kut's most recent advancements in his sound. Branching off from his earlier, more noise-influenced work, he enters a realm of voodoo-worshipping, highly sexual, dark, ritualistic ambient. Known for his elaborate performances, this work features a story revolving around sexual development and liberation. The album features seven tracks ranging from trance-inducing soundscapes to pulsing rituals of sound." [label info]


"Kristus Kut (dutch for Christ Cunt) was founded in 2008 and is inspired by rituals like voodoo, cantomble, santeria and lukumi. The band works with bass-guitars, bamboo, broomsticks, vocals and effects to create ritualistic, dark and esoteric energy. Every performance is an event on its own, a spontaneous moment which are sexual, wild and tough. For now Kristus Kut plays together with Jabu Warrior, who plays a berimbau, a single-string percussion instrument. Butterfly King is the first release at the label Mind Flare Media situated in the USA. The CD contains seven tracks. The first track is highly erotic by the voice of a screaming woman and dark tones and abstract beats. The second and third track refers to music like Zoviet France. Minimal beats on the berimbau and other percussion instruments with delay and echo. Nice subtile trance-creating compositions. "The Transformation of Love Honey for the Queen" has also a high ritual atmosphere with a repeating chants, beats and noise. Nice track as well, especially of lovers of the early Current 93 music. The second transformation track is more abstract and a nice mix of electronics and acoustic sounds, but also in the same atmosphere as before. The last track "Vagina Libertatis" starts with a voice repeating the word Kristus Kut and goes on for 21 minutes long and music elements are added with dark soundlayers, noise and beats on the berimbau. Twenty minutes stands for the period of Zen-meditation, but the words Kristus Kut are just words and not like a chant to get into a trance. Too bad, cause the rest of the album has this potential."
