about

BB-014

In 1993, Wake Turbulence mastermind and sole member Cam Horvath both embodied Norwegian black metal’s violent strain of pagan nihilism and sought to defy the genre’s increasingly stultifying conventions. In March of that year, he recorded Muthal, one of the most captivating and influential black metal albums ever committed to tape. Unlike much of the black metal that was being created at the time, Wake Turbulence’s debut full-length wasn't so much a feral outcropping of youthful rebellion as it was an ultra-hypnotic meditation on what Horvath says was his own inner despair. How this despair played out may or may not have been a factor in Horvath’s subsequent murder of his former friend and bandmate Zach Hallenbeck, but that’s exactly what happened less than five months after Muthal’s completion. As a result, the album wasn't released until early 2015, when Horvath had already been incarcerated for nearly two decades. For fans on the outside, it was worth the wait.
