about

[ENGL] "Arisen in 2011 from the fertile scene of Montpellier, France, VERDUN made a name in the realm of slow and heavy music on the basis of a simple three-tracks demo, leaving a strong impression on every witness of the band’s thunderous live shows. With a line-up solidified after a few european tours and opening slots for forefathers such as Electric Wizard, Eyehategod or YOB, the band finally delivers their long-awaited debut album, mixed and mastered by Tad Doyle.

«The Eternal Drift’s Canticles» is the fruit of three years of crafting; far from simple amp-worship, the band excels at creating memorable tracks with their science of instant-classic riffs. A richer background emanate from these guitars, able to tint their sludge/doom roots with metallic hardcore toughness or burden-of-the-world melodies. Another strong component of VERDUN’s trademark sound comes from these charismatic vocals, switching between echoed screams from outer space, spoken words or mournful clean vocals. With an arid, heavy as hell sound, «The Eternal Drift’s Canticles» is a 55-minutes dark and painful procession that transcends the heritage of too-often codified scenes,running away from simply rehashing the past."


[FR] Les montpelliérains de VERDUN sont l'un de ces groupes plus difficiles étiqueter qu'il n'y paraît, brouillant les pistes entre sludge/doom et hardcore lancinant. Riffs aussi mastocs qu'arides, groove brise-nuque, gueulantes incantatoires et avec une bonne plâtrée de psychédélisme en bonus, voilà à quoi s'attendre durant la grosse demi-heure de leur premier EP "The Cosmic Escape Of Admiral Masuka"sorti chez Head Records en 2012. Avec "The Eternal Drift", leur premier album mixé et masterisé par Tad Doyle (TAD, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth, YOB, Lumbar etc.) à Seattle, le groupe donne suite aux mésaventures de Masuka, un astronaute psychotique dérivant dans l'espace.
Précédés par une réputation assez impitoyable en live, VERDUN est assurément un groupe à suivre pour tout fan de Burning Witch, Electric Wizard, ou Amenra; et par extension de tout ce qui se fait de sale et pesant.

Track Name: Mankind Seppuku
THROWING AWAY LAST PIECES OF MYSELF
MAY THE STARS WITNESS MY COMPLAINT
HAVEN'T YOU DREAMED OF BEING SOMEONE ELSE
GIVING UP A LIFE LEAD IN VAIN
I WON'T BE THE ONE
( A LIFE LEAD IN VAIN )
DON'T WANT TO DIE
( HEROES AND EGOS )
I WON'T BE THE ONE
( SAMOURAÏ IN PAIN )
DON'T WANT TO DIE
( EGOS)
EACH MINUTE MORE ALIVE
SADNESS AND PAIN
RIPPING MY EYES
SOLDIER GONE
COWARD BORN
SWEET LONELINESS TAKES ME HOME
INCOMING MARTYR
THRILLING PLEASURES OF DECEPTION
GLORY ALWAYS FELT LIKE AN INFECTION
NOBODY TOLD ME THAT I COULD BE THE ONE ( WICKED )
PALE LIGHTNING GLOWING WET
I WON'T BE THE ONE
( A LIFE LEAD IN VAIN )
DON'T WANT TO DIE
( HEROES AND EGOS )
I WON'T BE THE ONE
( SAMOURAÏ IN PAIN )
DON'T WANT TO DIE
( EGOS)
EACH MINUTE MORE ALIVE
SADNESS AND PAIN
RIPPING MY EYES
SOLDIER GONE
COWARD BORN
SWEET LONELINESS TAKES ME HOME
SHINE! YOU MARTYR MASUKA
LEAVING! ALL LOVED ONES BEHIND
ERASED! YOUR BRAINWASHED MIND
NO MEDALS! FOR A DESERTER
NO CANTICLES! TO SING COWARDICE
Track Name: Self-Inflicted Mutalitation
IMMORTALITY IS THE TRAITOR'S REWARD
HAVE I OFFENDED THE MIGHTY GODS BY MY ACTS
STUCK IN THIS POD
SPACE BEAMS CHANGING ME
FROM THE OUTSIDE
HAVE I OFFENDED THE MIGHTY GODS
NO - HELP
NO - HELP
SELF INFLICTED MUTALITATION
TURNING MYSELF INTO A MONSTER
SELF INFLICTED MUTALITATION
DESPAIR TAKES ME OUT THE GRAVE
SKIN TURNS INTO VAPOR
BONES BREAKING MELTING WITH STEEL
FLAMING EYES
ON A FACE THAT ONCE WAS MINE
NEVER THAT HURT - NEVER THAT ALIVE
TURNING MYSELF INTO MONSTER
NEVER THAT HURT - NEVER THAT ALIVE
TURNING MYSELF INTO A MONSTER
SELF INFLICTED MUTALITATION
TURNING MYSELF INTO A MONSTER
SELF INFLICTED MUTALITATION
NEVER THAT HURT BUT NEVER THAT ALIVE
NEVER THOUGHT THAT THE FIRST DEMON I MET
WAS ME
BURY THE MAN
WELCOME DEMON
BURY THE MAN
IN THE OLD GRAVE
Track Name: Dark Matter Crisis
IT'S HIDDEN EVERYWHERE
IN THE SMALLEST PARTS OF UNIVERSE
THE SACRED SECRET OF THE GODS
ITS SEARCH HAS CREATED THE CRAZIEST WARS
GODS AGAINST GODS LAWS AGAINST LAWS
THE QUEST ALWAYS CLAIMS FOR MORE BLOOD
HOW COULD YOU FIND WHAT'S FOREVER HIDDEN
HOW COULD YOU TOUCH SOMETHING NOT SHOWN
BUT DARK MATTER SHINES LIKE A THOUSAND SUNS
SHINE DARK MATTER
IT CANNOT BE SHOWN
BUT EVERYONE WANTS TO FIND HIS OWN
SHINE, O DARK MATTER
IN GALAXIES
SHINE ON MATTER
I'VE ALWAYS DREAMED OF A COMMON CAUSE
EVERYONE ON THE SAME SCALE
FORGET GOOD AND BAD
RELIGIONS OR CODES
EVERYONE ON THE SAME SCALE
Track Name: Glowing Shadows
REALIZING THAT MY LIFE HAS BEEN A LIE
PRETENDING TO BE SOMEONE ELSE
BUT ALONE IN THE DARK I CAN HEAR THEM CALLING
A CASTLE BUILT ON DEADLY GROUND
FAILURE AND SUCCESS WEIGH THE SAME
HAVE FAITH IN YOUR DOUBTS, DOUBT YOUR FAITH
AND LET THE SHADOWS DECIDE
SPACIAL SOUNDS CHARMING THE HERO MIND
LEAVE THE FLESH AND ACCEPT TO FACE THE TRIAL
IN EVERY MAN LIES A TRAITOR'S SEED
SPILLED BLOOD TO MAKE THEM GROW
WHEN YOU FACE ACCEPTING
BEING ROTTING MEAT
YOU FEEL - THE NEED - THE NEED FOR GLOWING SHADOWS
FOR A LONELY MAN AFTER IS A PROMISE
A NEW CHAPTER TO START WHEN YOU LEAVE THE SKIN
IT TAKES COURAGE TO CHOOSE THIS PATH
NO MATTER WHAT GODS HAVE EVER SAID
O MOTHERLAND
SORRY FOR BETRAYING YOUR TRUST
MOTHER, FATHER
I'M ASHAMED TO BE YOUR SON
TO ALL MY FRIENDS
I WAS NOTHING BUT A BURDEN
AND YOU MY LOVE
YOU WERE NOTHING, NOTHING BUT ANOTHER DRUG
Track Name: Jupiter's Coven
FLOATING IN THE DEEPEST SILENCE
PUSHED BY THE SUN WAVES
I GAVE UP ON GODS AND SCIENCE
NO SALUTE FOR THE BRAVE
BURIED ALIVE IN THIS COFFIN
CORRUPT IS MY SOUL
PEACEFULLY ROTTING
I HEAR JUPITER'S SONG
DEMONS, WITCHES
CREATURES OF THE SHINY DARK
DIE, SING AND PREY
HERE IN JUPITER'S ARCH
LEAVE ME ALONE
MY CORPSE BURNT BY THE RAIN
CALL ME ANGEL OR DEMON
COLD FIRE IN MY BRAIN
MANKIND IS A DISEASE
A MEAT WITH NO TASTE
I WILL GATHER AND SUMMON
AND IN JUPITER I WILL REST
SUMMON, SUMMON
JUPITER'S HEART
I WAS DEAD, NOW I'M ALIVE
I WAS COLD, I'LL SURELY DIE
GATHERING MY FORCES
FOR JUPITER'S CROWN
