Violence Mortuaire Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording and release of the new album?

We organized our release party to launch our album and federate our community in France. We are starting to work our line up to perform live concerts!



2.A few months back you released a new album, musically how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?


Our rigor during the recording, mixing, production and mastering phases has increased enormously, so the final result is much more qualitative. From a musical point of view, we have been drawn from more cultures to create even stronger sound textures.



3.The lyrics on the new album are inspired by poets, which poets have had the most influence on your songwriting?


Colt wrote more poems for this album and the poets that inspired us are: Paul Eluard & Maurice Rollinat




4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Violence Mortuaire'?

The group is made up of musicians experienced in black metal, jazz, world and rock styles.

We wanted to highlight the light and dark side of each idea of ​​our music.

The idea of ​​the project is to try to explore contradictory sound universes that reflect the fragility and violence of certain human emotions.


5.Can you tell us a little bit more about the artwork that is presented on the new album cover?

We wanted something very crossed out.

We wanted to open the doors of our personal wills and explore our frustrations, dreams and nightmares and

calls for help

"Humanity is made up of more dead than living," said Auguste Comte. How ironic even for the founder of positivism ...

Violence Mortuaire has never happened on stage before.



7.Do you have any touring or show plans for 2020?


We are currently working to make our first scene with this group during 2020 in Brittany in France.


8.Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or have received any interest?


We are not looking for a label at the moment but we have been contacted.


9.On a worldwide level how has the reaction been to your music by fans of experimental and extreme metal?

The reactions were surprisingly good because our mixture is quite unique.

What our audience likes is the subtle mix between violence and melody. You can find the reviews on our website.
