Premiering their first single “Split“, Sludge Metal project La Nausée who hail from Ghent, Belgium are not only inspired by Belgian bands like Stake, Drums Are For Parades and Raketkanon (who regularly played hometown), but also influenced by international acts Iron Monkey, Black Tusk and Deftones. A crushing track with a whirlwind of percussive battery tempo changes, it also has the prominent crush of a Metallic Hardcore guitar tone and broken chrod progressions that fall in the gap between Knocked Loose and Left Behind. Check out the lyric video and if you want to snap it up, look no further than bandcamp.
La Nausée on the song: “This song is about where we can place ourselves in this world, in this life. The force of nature is unparalleled. The mind is too small to grasp the whole picture. Essence precedes existence, but not for us. We are to decide our state of being and make ourselves whole. For this song we teamed up with Stef Exelmans to do the mix and master and we really like the result. He did an awesome job in the past recording the latest TURPENTINE VALLEY and BEAR albums and we knew immediately that he was the man we wanted to work with. The artwork was made by Kacper Gilka Art who is an amazingly talented illustrator from Poland and we love his work and felt a connection between the song and the art so that was an easy choice.“
