Non Serviam… In addition to the already existing bands from Peru, Sweden, and USA, and I’m only talking about the ones I know, I am now aware of this French band based in Paris…
Well, to start… You need to be an open mind to listen to this band. Why? Well… Quite simple. They mix a lot of music styles in their music. Starting with industrial, Electro, Black Metal, Grindcore, Sludge, Crust, some sounds in the music that reminds me a bit of Baroque/Burlesque, experimental music, and sometimes screams/speeches/chants that can fulfill the songs…
The description is strange? Well, a bit. This “mix salad” is bad? Well… Yes and no. If you are a open mind related to music and always looking for good music. This is for you. If you are a traditional metalhead, well, this band is not for you.
For me was a really good surprise to be honest. While I was listening to this promo and founding the above music styles and music details and trying to understand what this band is trying to do and I started to be absorbed by the music, by the cadence of it. The experimental sounds added to the music, the voice sometimes natural and harmonious, other times with immense effects, the electronic drums, the riffs used in the songs…
It’s an album that I was a total unknown path cause I never knew what would be appear. Not a typical album that I more or less know what should expect after one riff or after one chorus. It’s a total surprise but with quality. At least in my opinion.
I didn’t get the lyrics in the promo, sadly for me, cause my French is a bit rusty, not to say very rusty. Eheh. So I only understood a very few things.
For the quality of the music here, for the courage to do the “mix salad” music, for the pleasure, I had while listening to the music and my score is…
8/10 The Key Keeper
8/10 To Greatness and glory!
