about

Limited transparent beer vinyl+digital edition (300 copies)
GZH86 | Release Date : November 18th, 2018

KAMI 神 is the fourth opus of FOUDRE! - a telluric drone quartet composed of Frédéric D. Oberland (Oiseaux-Tempête, Le Réveil des Tropiques, The Rustle Of The Stars, FareWell Poetry), Romain Barbot (Saåad), Grégory Buffier (Saåad, Autrenoir) and Paul Régimbeau (Mondkopf, Autrenoir, Extreme Precautions) which are meeting punctually for sessions of ritual improvisation where they invoke by the noise and drone the deities of chaos.

Improvised and recorded live at Le Rex de Toulouse supporting the 10th anniversary of French doom metal band Monarch!, KAMI神 extends the cosmogony and the sound of the band by taking excursion into the invisible and ambiguous side of nature. In this orgiastic and surprising mix of sonic textures and rhythms, it may be heard strange phenomena, summoning of animistic spirits, shamanic calls, siren yellings and growls. The original chemigram artwork was created by French artist Fanny Béguély by painting with chemicals on light-sensitive paper.

Following the sold-out EARTH soundtrack (GZH71, 2017), KAMI 神 delivers an immersive soundscape for abstract clubbers, where kosmiche electronic, power ambient and industrial punk music are freely invited to commune. This pagan ceremonial is an ode to the ever-changing vortex of life - a sonic dream machine for the occurring now.

PRESS

NEW NOISE MAGAZINE (FR) : "Une expérience unique menée de main de maîtres."

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.'

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.'

INDIE MUSIC (FR) : "Les musiciens de FOUDRE!, déjà connus pour leurs différents projets (Oiseaux-Tempête, Mondkopf, Saåad, Autrenoir…), nous offrent avec « KAMI神 » l’enregistrement d’une improvisation live — quatre démiurges, creusant le son comme une carrière pour le sculpter et le projeter toujours plus loin."

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.'

NEOPRISME (FR) : "La musique post-drone, sensorielle, free, punk, analogique, ouverte sur le monde, de FOUDRE!, improvisée lors d’une soirée toulousaine et finalement enregistrée sur disque, illustrée par la photographie sur papier de Fanny Béguély : c’est l’alliance heureuse qui porte KAMI神, un album qui hurle, qui se tord et s’élève très haut, et dont le titre fait référence à ces forces énergiques qui, dans la tradition japonaise, seraient « capables du meilleur comme du pire »…

POP MONITOR (DE) : "Mit KAMI 神 entführen FOUDRE! in eine Welt für sich."

X-SILENCE (FR) : "FOUDRE! nous confronte à nos sentiments et à nos impressions ; la découverte est constante. La musique explore autant l'auditeur, que l'auditeur explore la musique."
