Kevin Hufnagel of Dysrhythmia and Gorguts fame has just released his second solo guitar album, Transparencies.
Kevin put the disc out through his own imprint, Nightfloat Recordings. The effort can be streamed in full and purchased at BandCamp.com.
Kev’s also selling his past recordings, including a rare, self-released cassette demo from 1997, titled While I Wait.
Head to the end of this post to check out a trailer for the album.
It was created by Romanian artist Costin Chioreanu, using photography taken by Hufnagel.
For Transparencies, Kevin decided to work primarily with electric guitar as opposed to his last release Songs For The Disappeared, which was entirely acoustic-based.
The concept this time, a press release says, was to create dark and lush tapestries of sound, rich with texture, but without forsaking melody and detail to composition. Recorded at home by Hufnagel himself, the album displays his knack for using experimental guitar ideas and minimal recording techniques to craft strangely beautiful soundworlds.
