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.

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

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

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.

10.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

progressive black metal

Clément is passionate about history and geography. Colt is passionate about sport (climbing, diving, hiking) and entrepreneurship.

Violence Mortuaire/Ab Intestat/2019 Full Length Review

Violence  Mortuaire  are  a  band  from  France  that  plays  a  mixture  of  black  metal,  hardcore,  progressive  and  experimental  music  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  self  released  2019  album  "Ab  Intestat".

  Clean  playing  starts  off  the  album  before  going  into  a  heavier  musical  direction  while  the  faster  sections  of  the  songs  also  add  in  a  decent  amount  of blast  beats.  Vocals  are  mostly  done  in  a  screaming  style  along  with  some  elements  of  hardcore  being  added  in  the  mid  tempo  sections.

  When  the  music  speeds  up  a  great  amount  of  black  metal  style  tremolo  picking  can  also  be  heard.  The  songs  also  add  in  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  as  well  as  the  softer  sections  of  the  music  also  adding  in  some  saxophones  and  jazz  influences,  spoken  word  parts  can  also  be  heard  in  certain  sections  of  the  recording.

  When  clean  vocals  are  utilized  they  are  also  done  in  a  very  avant  garde  style  as  well  as  the  riffing  also  being  very  heavily  influenced  by  thrash  metal.  When  guitar  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  also  done  in  a  very  melodic  progressive  rock  style  along  with  a  couple  of  the  tracks  also  being  very  long  and  epic  in  length.

  Growls  can  also  be  heard  in  certain  sections  of  the  recording  and  as  the  album  progresses  spoken  word  parts  can  also  be  heard  briefly.  The  production  sounds  very  professional  for  being  a  self  released  recording  while  the  lyrics  are  based  upon  poems  written  by  Paul  Verlaine,  Arthur  Rimbaud,  Victor  Hugo,  Charles  Peguy  and  Jean  de  la  Fontaine.

  In  my  opinion  Violence  Mortuaire  are  a  very  great  sounding  mixture  of  black  metal,  hardcore,  progressive  and  experimental  music  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Post  Chaos"  "Post  Hell"  "Post  Religious"  and  "Post  hate".  8  out  of  10.
