Six Organs of Admittance Share “Wax Chance”

Six Organs Of Admittance shares single "Wax Chance" ofF forthcoming LP 'Hexadic,'

It is time for the ears of the world to begin to hear the Hexadic sound! Much is being made of the new combinatorial system devised by Six Organs of Admittance’s Ben Chasny, even though it hasn’t yet been fully revealed to the public. When people heard that Chasny had based his new album on this system (out February 17th!), which he has termed “Hexadic,” it was automatically assumed that the music would be not only deep, but also compelling and challenging to the ears. The man is heavy, what more can we say? Indeed, with “Wax Chance,” the debut track available for preview, the guitar is dialed up to the breaking point, the vocals squeezed through dimensional wormholes, bass and drums walking with eerie tranquility – but what you really come away with is the scalar invention explored most evidently during the solo portion of the song. Hexadic processes built the riffs and the lengths of phrases, but they also suggested the scale being played in for every piece on Hexadic – and with “Wax Chance,” Ben gets a verse or two in, then sets upon his guitar to run that particular scale raw.
