A realm of darkness awaits. France’s cathartic doom specialists ENDLESS FLOOD formed in 2015 in Bordeaux around Stephane Miollan (Monarch, Bombardement), Benjamin Sablon (Bombardement, Shock) and Simon Bédy. With “no boundaries in heaviness” as a motto, they raise a prodigiously thick wall of sound by blending doom and sludge aesthetics with mind-expanding ambient metal structures. A sorrowful procession arising from the limbo. The trio released their self-titled debut in 2015, then quickly returned with their sophomore full-length “II” in January 2017. New album Circle The Gold” (2019) results from a year-long reassessment among the trio and symbolises a fresh start in their creative process. Over the span of 40 minutes and two songs, it sees the band evolve towards a more melodic aspect of their sound. Like the first ray of light shining through the gloom after a violent storm, both songs slowly move from impressively majestic chaos driven by cathartic screams and unfettered echoing solos, to almost-meditative and unadulterated moments of peace.

At the core of Rouen local scene, GREYFELL are the armed wing of Soza collective. Stoner, for the sake of it, not by trend, where hints of black metal, doom and hardcore that are no coincidence either. Drawing influence from sonic heavyweights like type o negative, sleep and kickback, and paying tribute to the ancient spacemen3 as well. Mastering the inner power of extreme music, their sound proves to be celestial, telluric, and all around massive. Nagging Guitar riffs piled on a bass sound of an unheard heaviness, chained to drum beats delivered like there’s no tomorrow. Hypnotic and tense melodies uphold vehement and incantatory vocals. Their music will shake the foundations of the powers that be. There will be a light in the dark, there will be quiet before the storm, there will be harmony in chaos.
