META MEAT, an electro-tribal-industrial duo, available on CD, digital (and double-vinyl on January 2017)
Labels : Audiotrauma and Ant-Zen.
Listen and order :
Both electronic musicians and composers, Somekilos (half of 2kilos &More) and Phil Von (co-leader of Von Magnet) also share a passion for percussions and rhythms.
Their common project entitled META MEAT associates the source of flesh (MEAT) with its passage beyond (META).
META MEAT is a very physical live act bound to propel our bodies and souls into another state, a state of release and trance, incarnating a wish to elevate our animality towards a higher conscience of being.
The duo fights together a vibrant duel. Their joined skills and energies combine real drumming & beating (Somekilos), real stamping & banging (Phil Von) together battling against twisted virtual synths samples & machines. The electronic sounds being treated as radically as the acoustic percussions played by the two musicians, the musical result turns out sounding utterly “tribal”.
Enhanced by the magnificent production and mixing of Def (mastered by Norscq), this first album is a Samurai pact, a commitment to raw musical integrity and an oath to elegant barbaric sonic power.
And if this album was a weapon, the perfect soundtrack for our actual world wars? Cruel, merciless, sad, pandemic but harshly accurate. When two antagonistic cultures scrape and collide against each other, Occidental versus Oriental, modern versus archaic… even adding the Eastern Asian third part into the balance, so to stir an even more complex and brutal electro-ethnic blend.
How can we envision a better world?
Let us first try to transcend its poignance.
