This doom/stoner rock band from Paris just made its fourth album. The first thing you notice is that it sounds a bit lighter than their previous work. The vocals are almost completely clean and much more melodic than before. That is something remarkable in this genre, although they retain their own style and individuality.

Despite the fact that the songs remain quite heavy, the different approach gives the songs a much wider and more attractive sound. At times, the long pieces remind us of Steak Number Eight (Belgian band-ed.). Their music also contains some influences from bands such as Mastodon (the guitars) or Alice in Chains (the vocals). The clean vocals fit very well with the dark and gloomy atmosphere.

A good album that is available as a double LP. A tour is expected in 2016.

Deze doom-/stonerrockband uit Parijs is ondertussen aan zijn vierde release toe. Het eerste wat opvalt is dat dit album wat lichter klinkt dan hun voorgaande werk. Ook de vocalen zijn bijna helemaal clean en veel melodieuzer dan vroeger, wat opvallend is in dit genre, ofschoon ze hun stijl en eigenheid behouden.

Ondanks het feit dat de songs vrij zwaar blijven, is er deze keer voor een andere benadering gekozen waardoor de nummers een wijder, maar ook aantrekkelijerk geluid krijgen. Bij momenten doen de lange en uitgesponnen stukken je wat aan Steak Number Eight denken. Ook bevat hun muziek heel wat invloeden van bands zoals Mastodon (het gitaarwerk) of Alice in Chains (de zang). De cleane zang past trouwens zeer goed bij de donkere en sombere sfeer.

Een goed album dus dat verkrijgbaar is als dubbel-lp. Een tournee wordt in 2016 verwacht.
