More Info
Deathprod, a.k.a. Helge Sten, has been deeply embedded in the Oslo music community for decades, but his brooding
soundscapes and deliberate process make him seem sometimes like a phantom. Sten is a founding member of
Supersilent, adding his sounds and treatments to the avant jazz leanings of that powerful collective, and he has
collaborated with artists as diverse as Biosphere, and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones.

But Occulting Disk is the first new Deathprod album in 15 years; his attention to detail is next level, and the darkly
powerful soundscapes arch and swell like the shifting of the Earth’s tectonic plates. Raw, emotional, political and
deliberate, this is ambient music with deep intention.
Fans of Arca, Oneohtrix Point Never, Tim Hecker, Steve Reich, Autechre, Swans, and GAS will all need this record –
Deathprod makes some of the most powerful experimental ambient composition of our time. His last LP, "Morals and
Dogma", from 2004, was listed as one of Pitchfork’s top 50 ambient albums of all time. FACT calls Sten the “dark
ambient master.” The New York Times said “Sten loves to summon up thick, often ominous clouds of sound, gesturing
at everything from avant-garde composition to black metal without ever quite revealing his hand.”
"Occulting Disk" is an anti-fascist ritual. Recorded in Oslo, Reykjavik, Berlin and Los Angeles between 2012 and 2019.
Liner notes by Will Oldham.
