Extreme Doom leviathans ATARAXIE have unleashed the music video for their new album’s opening track, “People Swarming, Evil Ruling“. It’s available for viewing above. The new album, “Résignés”, is due out March 08 through a triumvirate of extremist labels, DEADLIGHT (CD, Europe), WEIRD TRUTH (CD, rest of the world) and XENOKORP (Vinyl, Cassette & Digital). XENOKORP preorders are available on our webstore here. METAL TEMPLE just gave it a perfect 10/10!
It took six long years to ATARAXIE to deliver the follow-up to 2013’s ultra massive “L’être et la nausée“. Six long years spent reinventing themselves when guitarist Sylvain ESTEVE (one of the founding members) left, replacing him with two new guitar players Hugo GASPAR (FATUM ELISUM, MALEMORT…) and Julian PAYAN (SORDIDE, VOID PARADIGM…), re-arranging their whole back-catalogue for this uncommon new line-up with three guitarists, touring Europe and writing new material. But when it comes to one of the European leaders of the Extreme Doom scene, delivery definitely doesn’t mean deliverance. At all.
“Résignés“, the new album, is all but just “music”, it’s a painful experience to be suffered by all senses, by all organs, innards… It’s not just like swarming in the sewers. It’s drowning in an oil spill of cataclysmic proportions where deep growls sound like the last words expectorated through a last breath from oil-filled lungs and screams express the utter madness invading the mind of the soon-to-be-dead, you.
