When it comes to blackened noise, few bands have the power to truly unsettle you at an extremely deep level and creep you the fuck out for good. Sure, the genre is dark and claustrophobic, but we’re almost in 2014 now and it’s definitely not anything we haven’t heard before.

CVLT Nation interviews Toby Driver of Kayo Dot. Pick up Hubardo here. Hubardo no matter the length, came along fast, little over a year after Gamma Knife – can you tell us why? A few reasons – firstly, the past couple of releases (Stained Glass and Gamma Knife) were relatively short,
