NEWS: Maudiir climbs from the grave with “L’Éloge du Cuivre”!
The one-man Blackened Thrash Army Maudiir (ex-Deeply Confused, Tears for the Dead Gods, Trinity Blast) is once again preparing for War with a third EP in four years set for 7th April in “Soliloque“. If his previous work and first single “L’Éloge du Cuivre” are anything to go by then Canadian has a collection of riff-driven cuts with big bass grooves and corrosive vocals raging on environmental issues in store for us.
Maudiir comments: ““L’Éloge du Cuivre” is a very different song for Maudiir. I would describe it as Helmet/Prong meets “Spirit of Sulfur” from the previous EP “La Part du Diable”. As a result of experimenting with a 7-string guitar, I think it’s a very catchy song and I really love the instrumental thrash metal section. The song is mostly about the Fonderie Horne in northern Quebec, but also touches on any non-repenting polluting company”
“It’s not a linear EP; certainly not the same song repeated again and again. Open-minded people, step in. Those who have heard my past EPs will notice ‘Soliloque’ is different than ‘La Part du Diable’, which was also different than ‘Le Temps Peste’. I like to think that the overall production is getting better with every release. I don’t want to repeat myself or focus on some kind of recipe. The overall sound of ‘Soliloque’ is very different from ‘La Part du Diable’; different guitar, bass, and drum sounds. I also used less effect on the vocals, a more in-your-face approach. One song was recorded with a 7-string guitar, I dabbled with some slide guitar on another… Trying new stuff. I particularly like the bass sound that cuts through really well. Being primarily a guitar player, I‘ve really come to enjoy giving a lot of space to the bass guitar in my music. It’s the instrument that I have the most pleasure recording”
