Lexemes "Barbarous Refinements" TAPECrown and Throne
Lexemes is an American instrumental metal band formed in 2005 in San Diego, CA and currently based in South Portland, Maine.
Exotic soundscapes are painted with near-brutal audio frequencies designed to evoke both a physical and emotional response from listeners. Lexemes has crafted a bleak ambient portrait of madness, with each composition rooted firmly in equal parts self-depreciation and moral decomposition. Drawing inspiration from bands such as Nocturnal Emissions, The Jesus Lizard, Christdriver, and Mütiilation, the music has evolved into a unique blend of instrumental noise and ambient metal.
