For his first LP, Hellenica continues his tour of ghost towns, walking between abandoned buildings in which some threatening presence might await. If it’s comfort you want, you should go somewhere else. We can still hear the influence of spaghetti western scores (think Ennio Morricone) with their fair share of worrisome tension, like any person we might encounter would be more likely to be an enemy than a friend. Hellenica expertly mixes genres and shapes them into a cohesive whole. One moment you believe you’re in an old western and the next software synths come in, leading you to think you might be in some dystopic future devoid of human activity instead, but where computers are still running by themselves, the only trace left of our existence. Intensely atmospheric, Blood Moon Wolf Head perfectly evokes this mysterious land where past and future overlap.
