TRVE BRUTAL BLACK JAZZ
AN UNPRECEDENTED FUSION OF BLACK METAL AND JAZZ
"Forget completely any previous attempt to achieve this fusion. This guy succeeds and yes, brutally." RTMB Music
"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."
"This is definitely one of the most obscure, difficult but rewarding albums." Moshville Times
Featuring nine musicians - drums, bass, guitars, sax, trumpet, keyboard, cello, flute and vocals, those six tracks revisit some of the most famous melodies of jazz artists in a much darker and heavier context.
Kind of Black takes its source from Miles Davis's Kind of Blue.
See Line Satan was created from Nina Simone's See Line Woman.
Growl Power is a hommage to James Brown's Soul Power.
Eventually, Tutu is a cover from the eponym album of Miles Davis and Marcus Miller.
"I asked myself: how would a collaboration between Miles Davis and Mayhem sound like ?"
The ambition of this project is to create a fusion between black metal and jazz in a set of songs which would pay tribute to artists from those genres.
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.
