SUPERCONTINENT

Band:THECODONTION
Album:SUPERCONTINENT
Label:I, VOIDHANGER RECORDS
Format:CDD
Genre:BLACK DEATH METAL

After releasing a demo ("Thecodontia", 2018) and an EP ("Jurassic", 2019), Italy's bass-driven black/death metal prehistoric beast THECODONTION is back with its first full length album, "Supercontinent". Thus far, the band's material has been uncompromisingly fast-paced and length-wise short, featuring their signature distorted double bass attacks and blistering bass solos. With "Supercontinent" THECODONTION move towards a more atmospheric and intricate direction, with tribalistic drumming, slower and lengthier riffing, and wailing reverb-drenched leads, all played on bass except for a baritone guitar guest solo on "Laurasia-Gondwana". Their blast-beating fury is nevertheless always present, this time around with a lot more variety in the riffing department. There are also four mostly non-metal instrumental segments in the forms of intro, interludes and outro, in which THECODONTION further expand their sonic palette, with bass ambience explorations and atmospheric rock leanings.

 

 

EX CATHEDRA

Band:CREATURE
Album:EX CATHEDRA
Label:I, VOIDHANGER RECORDS
Format:CDD
Genre:PROGRESSIVE BLACK METAL

Hailing from the murky depths of Brittany, CREATURE has been working actively at crafting some of today's most exciting, forward-thinking and unique metal music. With already two self-released albums under its belt (“Inquiétudes” in 2018, and “Contes Funèbres” in 2019) in less than a year of existence, the band returns with a new full-length, “Ex Cathedra”, an eccentric work exuding art and culture from each groove. The project of sole member Raphaël Fournier, CREATURE is a mighty, undefinable and slightly worrying beastly entity with ever shifting and blurry contours which leave the flabbergasted listener in awe. Rooted in the avant-garde and symphonic black metal from the 90s as much as it is in classic epic prog, CREATURE's music is intrepid and elegant, not bound by any genre, rule nor norm. Taking cues also from Baroque, French "variétés" (60s-80s french pop), classical, fanfare, French poetry and a whole life of listening to music of all kinds, Fournier's brew features intricate orchestrations of inventive guitars, thunderous rhythms, heavy bass, majestic keyboards, horns and choirs. His work truly carries the stigmas of a Leonardesque genius applied to a musical score, because of the constant tension between an exuberant creative research and an evident love for classical canons of ideal beauty and formal perfection.
