French Death Metallers LIQUID FLESH, featuring members of EPITAPHE and NIGHTMARE, have unleashed “Tapage Nocturne”, the first single taken from their forthcoming album “Dolores”, which is scheduled for release on May 26th via Time To Kill Records.
The band comments: “After our second album ‘Chair Liquide’ released in 2020, we wanted to proceed a little bit differently for the next one. Given the cinematic influences that have always guided our songwriting, we wanted to get closer to the process of creating a film. We made a draft for the cover, this draft inspired us a ‘screenplay’ in ten chapters, then we wrote the lyrics for ten ‘scenes’. The music came at the very end.
The album tells a woman’s journey from an aimless way of life to a surreal ending after a bad encounter. It is all about the dullness of daily routine, addiction and manipulation, told in a hallucinated way. Musically, the foundations remain the same, Death Metal from the late 80’s, early 90’s, but with more atmospheric material than on our previous works. Nonetheless, LIQUID FLESH is before all a live band, so we wanted to keep that energy intact.
While listening, you will be dragged from Rock ‘n’ Roll grooves to crushing Death Metal riffs, through psychedelic and doom oriented sections. Versatile and straightforward are great adjectives to describe this album.”
LIQUID FLESH is a Death Metal trio from the french Alps. Influenced by bands such as ENTOMBED, CARCASS, UNDERGANG and AUTOPSY, they play catchy songs with evocative atmospheres, drawing inspiration from sci-fi and horror movies. The band was founded in 2014 by four active members of the Grenoble Metal scene. After some gigs between France and Italy, the band quickly recorded its debut album “Spontaneous Liquefaction”, which contains seven death metal compositions with synth parts and many references to horror movies.
In 2018, Putrid Bruce, also vocalist of EPITAPHE, joined the band as vocalist and bass player. Now a trio, LIQUID FLESH started playing a more radical and sophisticated music, characterized by a relentless punk energy.
The band released the album “Chair Liquide” in September 2020, which received good feedback from the press. In summer 2021, Glaviar left the band and was replaced by Cephalic Niels from the Power/Heavy Metal band NIGHTMARE.
LIQUID FLESH finally recorded a third album in 2022. Designed as a concept album, it takes the listener into a musical journey that is both straightforward and psychedelic. A dive into a universe melting the dirt of “Street Trash” and the ethereal atmosphere of “The Neon Demon”.
