SVBTERRANEAN (USA) : 'FOUDRE! transport listeners to another plane of existence that can be both frightening and elevating simultaneously. Listeners may get lost in the swirling vortex of sound, but they won’t want to come out.'
FLUID RADIO (UK) : 'A dark beast hides within its music, obscured in shadow and only revealed when the unsavory noise claws at the record’s skin. The percussion taps on the door, wanting to gain entry, needing an invitation. Its bleak industrial and power-ambient setting converges with a chrome sky, the electronics spitting out a cycle of polluted noise.'
MERCHANTS OF AIR (UK) : 'FOUDRE! surpasses 'EARTH', something that I didn't know would be possible.'
AURAL AGGRAVATION (UK) : 'KAMI 神 carves a most extreme trajectory, taking the full duration of the set to build from a whisper to a terrifying scream. And it’s this arc that makes KAMI神 so accomplished and so exciting.'
X-SILENCE (FR) : "FOUDRE! nous confronte à nos sentiments et à nos impressions; la découverte est constante. La découverte de sons, qu'ils soient musicaux ou plus bruitiste, et surtout la découverte de ce que provoque tous ces éléments assemblés sur nos émotions"
