The Doors of the Autremonde are closing in on a darker and more sinuous second
chapter. The band's metal and progressive influences are fully asserted and bestow
strong intensity upon lyrics that evoke either the ancient beliefs of Old
Mesopotamia, or transcendance, or even rebirth in despair. In a complex maze in
which emotions intertwine and bleed into each other, where sounds are in turns
rough and soft, where melodies are ethereal, and where screams are wrung out of
the depths of the Earth, the Autremonde unveils itself.
As a mysterious ideal anchored in humanity's jolts, unseizable yet real, it unfolds
through the seven songs that make it up in order to provide its listeners with the
spark of that which fills it with life in spite of all: Hope.
Recorded in November 2021 at Silent Ruins Studio by Fred Blanchard.
Mixed by Fred Blanchard and mastered by Laurent Marc.
