Oceans of Tranquility Hidden Between Powerful Sound of Doom Metal
Be No One. Be Nothing is the second release from this doom/sludge metal trio (Simon Morlec / Jibus Carton / Nassim Chouki) from France. Their selftitled debut EP came out in the beginning of 2017 so the band is basically brand new, but they bring undeniable professionality to the scene. Album under review has only three tracks, but it’s still fifty-two minutes long.
How is the sound ?
Their sound is crispy clear and beautiful. First song “Burden” has a spectacular driving force and a kick that doesn’t just make you headbang a bit – it makes your whole body rock in the waves of sludge. And between this powerful doom metal they hide a calm ocean of tranquility – yet the sound never loses its heaviness and influence over you.
Second song “Harva” starts with a drumming that could be described as tribal. It reminds me of those big rain drops that splat on tarmac right before a lightning storm and of course like always – a storm follows.
With the final track “Realm” they once again show their ability to create something dreamy and lovely yet massive and ever-growing. The lenght of the songs gives them time and room to trap you piece by piece and because of this the album allows you to do exactly as it says. Be No One. Be Nothing.
Why is this album worth listening ?
- It is simply beautiful music.
- I think this album is one of those that could help you introduce some friends to this kind of music.
In what situation you should listen to this album ?
Meditating home alone.
