The third campaign by Host, Star & System, is the most consuming thus far. Four ordeals of noise, dark ambience and experimentation.
“The gross must pass through fire; let the fine be tried in intellect, and the lofty chosen ones in the highest. Thus ye have star & star, system & system; let not one know well the other!”
Based in the NSW Blue Mountains, ambient / noise act Host is the creation of Nathan Jenkins (ex-The Amenta) and originates as a tool to explore the modern mysteries without the superstition of the Old Aeon.
Captured sounds, broken images and modern allegory all come together for an intense, unsettling, all embracing journey.
