Paris industrial/hip-hop post-noise mongers CHAOS E.T. SEXUAL to release new album ‘Only Human Crust’ on Chien Noir; watch two videos now!
Straight from the Parisian suburbs, post-noise/industrial/dub veterans CHAOS E.T. SEXUAL are set to release their rebellious third album ‘Only Human Crust’ this November 20th on French label Chien Noir. Watch the band materialize modern chaos through their first two videos right now!
CHAOS E.T. SEXUAL‘s new album ‘Only Human Crust’ takes you through a disturbing urban jungle studded with political speeches and deconstructed bits of daily life. From that intolerant, industrial and oppressive scenery, emerges an unlikely blackened dub euphoria. Nine tracks that highlight the modern world’s chaos and darkness in a highly compelling and intoxicating way. The French trio’s music is a bold fusion of alternative genres such as electronic music, industrial metal and hip-hop. Think Godflesh, Dälek, Neurosis and Techno Animal being involved in a gruesome transe amidst a deranging world.
Watch new video « 1674 – Now: Many Thousand Gone«
Designed by French video team Eqko, “1674 – Now: Many Thousand Gone” deals with the topic of slavery in a very modern way (1674 marked the beginning of the triangular trade). The sample of “The Storm Is Passing Over” gospel song by Detroit Mass Choir and the lyrics taken from slave chant “No More Auction Block (Many Thousand Gone)” are tied together with the trio’s dark mechanical and grinding noises. CHAOS E.T. SEXUAL recently released a video for the track « La Française Des Jeunes », which is available on digital and limited edition cassette tape on Bandcamp.
Recorded and mixed by the band and mastered by Chris Fielding at Skyhammer Studio, ‘Only Human Crust’ is due out on November 20th, 2020 via Chien Noir on 2xLP, CD and digital format. The album artwork was designed by Ëmgalaï.

French underground’s most loyal members since 2010, CHAOS E.T. SEXUAL is an ambitious project mixing massive drone/industrial soundscapes and hip-hop/noise-laden beats to produce a hybrid songcraft. Highly sensitive to anything visual and improv-related, the band always offer a live set that involves visual artists or video makers. Bass frequencies out loud, cold mechanical beats and sci-fi topics infused with political speeches that are disrupting the auditive approach, making it a subversive yet highly engaging sonic experience.
Following their dark experimentations infused with urban beats, CHAOS E.T. SEXUAL have issued two self-released albums: ‘Ov’ (2012) and ‘Ovna’ (2013). The band’s third effort ‘Only Human Crust’ is far more more politically engaged than the previous records, with nine tracks that highlight the modern world’s chaos and darkness, in the most compelling and intoxicating way. About ‘Only Human Crust’, the band says: « Laurent Gaudé’s book Eldorado, that tells several stories linked with the crossing of the Mediterranean Sea by migrants, inspired us a lot, we realised that we shared the same topics, these are about capitalist totalitarism and the different kinds of control, addiction an intolerance coming out of our contemporary societies. You can see all of this through Ëmgalaï Grafik’s artwork. »
