Gnaw Their Tongues - L'arrivée de la Terne Mort Triomphante sept 2010

Out now my fifth Gnaw Their Tongues full lenght: L'arrivée de la Terne Mort Triomphante.
A five track concept album about death. Released in the US by Crucial Blast Records (digipack with tshirt deal/digipack). In the UK/EU by Candlelight Records. Vinyl version (with slightly different art) is taken care of by Burning World Records.

This album is different from 'all the dread..'. The sounds here are all inspired by death. Dare i say it: introspective, contemplative, still dark as fuck. It features some of my most depressive/bombastic/melodic tracks. Really proud of this one.

l'arrivée de la terne mort triomphante.
Slowcrawling tom-tom's, metallic percussion with droning basses are joined in this opening ritual by a MASSIVE choir to celebrate the arrival of death. More reflective moments with sorrowfilled violins/piano make way for the crushing finale of bombastic grandeur. Probably the most bombastic/depressive GTT track ever!

les anges frémissent devant la mort.
Sinister brass plus crawling chaotic snares and timpany's comtemplate the majestic slow moving reaper. A lone cornet wails with fear. All white turns to grey and eventually black. Angels tremble with fear as Death passes by slowly. Again the finale is massive.

la mort dans toute son ineffable grandeur.
Chaotic, dissonant and filthy. Screeching violins and piano join percussion and basses for a wild dance. Death transform from the calm white to furious red. The final section is again massive and sorrowfilled. Wailing violin weep, massive choirs and pounding percussion.

le chant de la mort
Pure blind rage as death sings his song. Overblown frequencies and uneven rythms. A continious choir note and dissonant violins.

le trône blanc de la mort.
The end..my most emotional piece probably.

you are the artist of the year for me, probably.

previous album and "rend" album (of which i managed to clinch a final copy straight from al@awwfn) both rule and the new stuff is just totally amazing.

keep up the good work man!

the album of the year. please for the love of all that's good and evil in the world continue along this path. to hell with post-apocalyptic, this is like a grandfather telling his mutant children about the apocalypse with tears in his eyes.
