California’s Neoclassical Darkwave prodigy Kristin Hayter, aka LINGUA IGNOTA (a latin term meaning „unknown language“) brought her drenched-in-darkness-and-screaming-bloody-gore trademark sound to the Austrian capital city. Touring her current record Caligula (Profound Lore 2019), the setlist focused heavily on the latest output.
Day of Tears and Mourning
Channelling her primal, grandiose sounds and soundscapes @Rhiz Vienna, Hayter’s approach to the harsher aspects of Industrial and soothing sounds of Neoclassical organ’s samples made the smallish concert hall of the venue feel like a wide-open space of hatred and sorrow. Words hardly do justice to a show as ecstatic and immersive. Sometimes fragile and static, often furious, triumphant and convulsing, full body twitching and in motion, the 33-years old artist proved why she is one of the most interesting and exciting new harsh music acts out there.
