Serious Beak - Huxwhukw remixes (2012)

Band request from Art As Catharsis records.

It's gonna make more sense just to let you read their press release
but there are some radical and interesting interpretations of the
tracks taken from last years "Huxwhukw"

Instrumental prog-metal reinvented as ambient/industrial/electronica?

Give it a go - it is a pay what you want from Bandcamp.

Serious Beak’s Huxwhukw and the Crooked Beak of Heaven remixes are out now!
Dearest pals, we have just released Serious Beak’s Huxwhukw and the Crooked Beak of Heaven remixesa FREE collection of reinterpretations and transformations of Serious Beak's debut album "Huxwhukw", featuring submissions from Alex Wilson (sleepmakeswaves,Enkidu), Nick Soole (Slimey Things), Dylan Mitrovich (Breaking Orbit), Hinterlandt,Godswounds, Moz Troniquz, Brendan Gloag (Face Command), Redbatman, AM Frequencies and The Artists Formally Known As Gene And Tim. 

In November 2011, Serious Beak released their debut album 'Huxwhukw' to critical acclaim. It received delightful reviews from the likes of Loud Mag, Music Feeds, Sea of Tranquility, Metal Sucks, Metal Obsession, Invisible Oranges, Kill Hipsters, and Metal As Fuck amongst others. 
The reception by Australia's underground musicians must have been similar, because when the band made the raw stems from 'Huxwhukw' available online and asked people to remix, rework and transform their debut album there was no shortage of interest.
After receiving dozens of submissions from Australia and beyond, the band have pieced together their favourite ten tracks into a special digital-only release: ‘Huxwhukw and the Crooked Beak of Heaven remixes’. The album spans genres as diverse as glitchy electronica, ambient shoegaze, classical film score, German industrial metal and an acoustic country hoedown.
The submissions which didn't make the final album have been made available as b-sides on Soundcloud: http://bit.ly/KVzBZR
