Echancrure are a 1 man band from France that has been featured before in this zine that started out of experimental black metal but have evolved more into an experimental drone act with this new recording and this is a review of their 2012 ep "Discours Sur Le Colonialisme" which was released by Le Creepuscule Du Soir Productions.
Drum programming are all slow beats that have a trip hop feeling to them as well as some more militant parts, while the synths and sound effects bring elements of industrial, avant garde, experimental and noise to the music, as for the saxophones they have a free form jazz feeling to them along with some heavy bass lines being thrown into the music at times with the only song on this recording being over 20 minutes.
Vocals are mostly spoken word parts with some hip hop and rap elements, while the lyrics are written in French and cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound with none of the black metal influences that where present on their earlier material.
In my opinion this is another great recording from Echancrure and while it does not have the black metal elements the earlier releases have, I still feel this will appeal to people that like dark and experimental music. RECOMMENDED BUY.
