Sordide

From the wet gutters of Rouen (Normandy, France) comes Sordide, a raw black metal power trio which spits its scornful and desperate anger in Molière's language under the motto "neither name, nor flag". Since their inception in 2014, the band has released two well-received albums, La France A Peur and Fuir La Lumière, as well as a split EP with Satan (FR).

Hier Déjà Mort, their third full length, brings their idiosyncratic take on black metal to another level; reinterpreting the heritage of second wave bands through their own disillusioned yet exultant lens. Captured live and mixed analogically, the record sounds crude and natural, allowing space for each instrument to breath. Undeniably rooted in punk in sound and spirit, the band shines at spreading its vehement urgency - furious or more lancinant, yet always hypnotic and vitriolic - built for moisty basement shows.

Trident

The essence of Trident begun when Johan Norman (Soul reaper, Dissection) and Alexander Friberg (Jaggernaut, Karneywar) were discussing music ideas at a bar in 2007. Johan whom had been away from the scene for a few years started to sense a strong urge to get back into it, the riffs, ideas and musical arrangements had been shelved for quite some time and was brought back to life.

Shortly after they agreed to initiate Trident and recruited the horrifying voice of Tobias Sidegård (Necrophobic) as the spokesman. Trident, the band with riffs without rules needed to find a special talented drummer to be suited for this kind of unique atmosphere, and after much intense work and many months searching for the drummer who could withstand the immensity of the music they finally came in contact with Jonas Blom (Grief of Emerald).
