Amesoeurs - Ruines Humaines (CD)
Debut release from French master Neige (ALCEST, PESTE NOIRE) and Audrey Sylvain with their new project: AMESOEURS!!
Amesoeurs are a reflection of our modern urban world. The endless grey shit stained concrete walked by the comatose masses, littered with needles, whores and bums. The useless working man trying to mask his tears with alcohol and television. Money and disease the duet that rule our world, infect our veins and corrupt our soul.
Neige was a big reason why the Mortifera album is such an amazing work and the skill he brought to that album is very present here. The music is a mixture of the melancholic 'black' metal found in Mortifera and Alcest mixed with strong inspiration from British bands Joy Division and The Cure.
Sad but contemplative, not offering any solutions or judgments, just a frustrated mirror held up to the sprawling city wasteland - but somehow, unintentionally, making it sound quite appealing...
