First Full-Length Album After Retiring The Lingua Ignota Moniker
SAVED! is an apocalyptic revelation on the complex, sometimes ugly, always nonlinear
process of healing. Herein, Reverend Kristin Michael Hayter documents an earnest
attempt to achieve salvation through the tenets of charismatic Christianity, focusing on
the Pentecostal-Holiness Movement, which dictate that one’s closeness to God is
demonstrated through transcendental personal experience. Sonically and thematically,
the record is both a logical conclusion to and a significant departure from Hayter’s
previous work as Lingua Ignota.
Mirroring her personal evolution away from pain, she sheds the moniker that made her
successful for its unflinching expression of lived trauma and instead builds herself anew, claiming her full given name, determined to see value within. Musically, while she
continues to use historical avant-garde technique and formal constraints superimposed
over accessible frameworks, she also strips down her instrumentation and degrades
audio to provide a sense of musicological antiquity. Similar to Lingua Ignota, the record
is steeped in pathos, but now the wrath of God gives way to His deliverance: “His
boundless love shall make you whole.”
