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.
