LES CHANTS DU HASARD: French Orchestral/Operatic Blackened Goth Project To Release Livre Troisième Full-Length April 9th
French orchestral/operatic blackened gothic project LES CHANTS DU HASARD will release its stunning Livre Troisième full-length on April 9th.
An endeavor conceptualized, composed, and performed by sole member, Hazard, LES CHANTS DU HASARD was spawned from the notion that metal is a musical style that deals with extreme emotions, anger, violence, darkness, despair, and whose goal is to create an aural experience of those emotions, something more than just music, that would submerge the listener. “I wondered what would be the best way to create such music,” recalls Hazard, “and the answer I found is that one needs the most expressive musical means. Now, what is the musical vessel with the most possibilities, the most nuances and that has been refined for centuries by very talented people? Orchestra.”
Lo Talker share new song + video for “Don’t Hide That Light Pt. 2;”
Andrew Shepard, vocalist and songwriter Lo Talker, says “I wrote ‘Don’t Hide That Light’ to try and remind myself that just because the world around me has plunged into a new level of insanity, it doesn’t mean I have to follow suit. Nihilism is so easy to flirt with especially when it feels like we’re not in on the cosmic joke being told, but the thought that a better world is possible in the face of such darkness is one worth waking up for.”
