Roots

Kataxu were a Polish Black Metal band. Though often lumped in with the NSBM scene, they had more of an esoteric slant to their cold misanthropic art. Kataxu weren't afraid to slather their sound in huge washes of hokey keys and distant guitars. Tremendous and expansive while also being grainy and nostalgic. Roots Thunder is one of the most coveted tapes in my collection.

I have all the Kataxu shit. Hunger of the Elements is one of the best albums of all time.

Sold. The intro is very Klaus-ish. Thank you brotha!

your describing them as "hokey" (the keys anyway) made me hesitate to check this out, but this is fantastic stuff...thanks!

Some of the keys remind me of the theme song to the X files. I like that.
