The Hell Fire Caves

LOCATION: West Wycombe

Melmoth the Wanderer makes queasy, occult music mixes that explore uncanny British geographies. Snippets of dialogue ooze through ambient drones and electronic beats.

In The Hell Fire Caves, he explores the subterranean terrors that lurk in the diabolic warrens underneath West Wycombe.

He writes: “Tales of the Hell Fire Club are well documented – this mix is all about the chalk cut caves and the secrets that lurk within them.”
