"Brilliant, and never foolishly elitist."


Rockhard Magazine (France)

"None has quite managed to merge the aggression and darkness of black metal with the spirituality and fluidity of jazz to make a straight combination. This project definitely is the closest yet." (US)

"This is definitely one of the most obscure, difficult but rewarding albums."


The Moshville Times (UK)

"What if Miles Davis and Mayhem

played together ?"

With a love for black metal and jazz, the accomplished French producer and all-round adept musician Etienne Pelosoff has already amassed a wealth of academic and studio experience in just a short space of time by creating an unprecedented music, a fusion of black metal jazz : furious drums, diabolical sax, screaming guitars, funky bass and devastating percussions.

By placing improvisation at the center of tribal grooves and spiritually evil ambiances, you will feel how far black metal jazz can take you.


Along with producing a wide array of local international talents, theclassically trained artist is now playing festivals including the Hellfest Off on the16th of June and the prestigious New Blood Fest near Geneva on the 15th of October.

single - 2020 

Already known for Trve Brutal Black Jazz, the EP nominated in the Top 10 Albums of the Year by the Moshville Times (UK), Etienne Pelosoff took his fusion of black metal and jazz a step further to create a new monster: a song everybody can headbang to.

By far the most brutal and direct song of his repertoire, Headbang to Jazz is the first piece of a brand new genre: Black Metal Jazz. Try not to headbang!

Winner of the ADAM AUDIO Scholarship Competition (UK)

"I asked myself:

how would a collaboration between

Miles Davis and Mayhem sound like ?"

Between blast beats and swing, distorted guitars and jazz chords, growl and scat, 'Trve Brutal Black Jazz' is an incongruous music challenging the boundaries of genres.
