The first release both for the newborn french label, La Grande Illusion, and a young french musician, a student in medicine, who made this record as a concept centred around the "traumatisms" due to the first world war.
A cinematic soundtrack in two parts: Strong martial elements with some atmospheric passages with organ and orchestral parts of supreme beauty with old song and films samples and a touch of heavy electronics.
As a comparison, the sound evolves in a style between early Der Blutharsch recording (the first LP), some analog Les Joyaux de la Princesse or Steinklang sounds. Once again, the same old description but this time it doesn't sound like another pale copy. A very promising first strike.
Quote from Athnr site : The first full lenght release by french formation Les Sentiers Conflictuels after two vynil releases.
On this cinematographic album, Andrew King reads the strange letters signed Jack the Ripper Scotland Yards received in late 1888 on a disturbing neoclassical soundtrack with some cold foggy drones and sounds of archive (mechanical noises, operettes and old cylinders samples). A dark journey into the wet sinuous streets of Whitechapel, London 1888...
In some aspects, this release reminds the collaboration between Blood Axis and LJDLP both in style and intensity. Limited edition 3 pannel digipack.
