expanding on 2017’s ‘devil is fine’, which lit up the imaginations of the shop, this one doubles down on both blues and black metal elements, magnifying the contrasting dynamics and tones to enormously satisfying effect.

Mixing blues, gospel, and soul with harsher music has opened up a world of possibilities for frontman manuel Gagneux. In contrast to ‘Devil Is Fine’, these songs are deliberately intended to play off each other both lyrically and musically. While the record seethes with a justifiable rage, its wider-reaching aim is to unify, not divide, and to inspire action, not inertia. Elements of a bleak melancholy are tempered by hope. imagine the sound of algiers, audioslave and kings of leon, but much heavier! fans of other metal fusion acts like mykur or wolves in the throne room should love this too!
