Fanges 19:00
Forsaken, The haunted, the hollow, Shells liquefied, ruptured bones, lingering. Whatever you do, thorns will pierce your guts, even if you dare to disregard. No glimmer of hope will disrupt your wretched condition. All joy, glimpses and smiles are but mere chimeras. And there is no turning back, as every step is laid to rest. Only the pain that binds your very foundations. Another illusion for what you stand for. Each glance inside yourself will serve as a reminder that it is not a disease. It is not a plague. It is only yourself. Let go, the once familiar sentenced to vanish, sentenced to vanish. Illusive joys within. All wonders waiting to shatter inside your cracked skull. Until you gouge your eyes out. Beyond your own misery, the child you knew sentenced to sink, sentenced to sink. Neither farewell, nor memories. No relief. Awake in the womb. Alive is the wound. --- Pétrifié, piétiner jusqu'à la saignée, la moindre parcelle de répit ; Subsister, au rythme de ce martèlement, Et demeurer, en dépit de la nécrose de l'existence, poli par la geôle du temps. Avec l'expectative comme seul horizon, L'être contrit d'étrangers fardeaux, Délinée dans sa solitude, L'affliction qui de ses pieux laboure, Son chemin vers des valves chancelantes. Ineffable, Est l'ire spasmodique qui ruisselle dans mes veines. Fanges régurgitantes et indicibles. Une algarade à mes sens, À nulle autre semblable ; Inextinguible. Et ce corps abhorré, suivant le galbe des monts ravinés, N'est que synapses rutilants à la croisée des codas, Saillie fantoche par-delà la douleur. Que cessent les canons de vos implacables mensonges. Avec l'allant du soir, c'est tout le spectre de ma déchéance qui semble soudain peser sur ce châssis de chair, et de sa voix serpentine, susurre par-dessus mon épaule ses sempiternels versets.
An unspeakable truth disrupts your stance, shredding your spine to pieces. Conflicted, torn apart, a master of none, amongst the ruins of your being. Ces mots qui n’en sont déjà plus, des miasmes sublimes qui désagrègent mon être. I was born for this purpose, Like a written fantasy. And there is no turning back, there is only the pain, which binds my very foundations. You should not trust them, it could be, if you dare, it could be worse. Bleed, extort all your lies, Bleed, spare no disguise. Bleed, extort all your lies, Bleed, spare no faces nor your mind. I have always been afraid of this moment, it cannot be otherwise. Desperately weary, from these radiances that lose me. Bleed on my sight. I was made for this purpose alone, A wreck of flesh, just a weak messiah. Je monterai seul dans la barque, le regard éteint, où le flot s’efface, Là où ne vit aucune grâce, ni désir. J’errerai sans mât, sur ces eaux où rien ne chavire, ni dans l’ivresse ni les sanglots. Je ne serai qu’un sot, qui ne saurait mourir. Where there is one wailing.


"Fanges" is a two part EP, written and recorded in 2020 and 2021.

The first track explores a colder and more experimental side of the band's music, featuring a slow development driven by murky guitar tones strewn with layered noise and sound design. It was written collectively with ouside artists Anthony Barruel and Sarah Onave.
The second track draws from the same core concept, but takes an opposite approach, focusing on the raw visceral energy of a live-captured performance to unveil a more urgent and riff-centric track.
