Mourir – Animal Bouffe Animal
Animal Bouffe Animal is the debut full-length from MOURIR, a newly-born glacial black metal act from Toulouse, southern France. Initially the brainchild of Plebeian Grandstand's bassist Olivier L., MOURIR is the full-band follow-up to his one-man project Vermine. Bolstered by the addition of members from Toucan, late Selenites and Drawers, the four-piece headed to Laval during summer 2019 to record and mix "Animal Bouffe Animal" with engineer Amaury Sauvé (Birds In Row, Plebeian Grandstand, Necrodancer…). Helped with a spectacular production - mastered by Thibault Chaumont (Birds In Row, Igorrr, Klone…) - these six tracks are a non-stop barrage of majestic guitar leads, pounding drums and bone-chilling ghoulish howls. Equally influenced by early norwegian forefathers as well as the dissonant approach of their fellow countrymen, MOURIR's take on black metal propels the band as new heirs of the french black metal scene - faithful to the genre's frameworks while adding their own modern touch.
