Released 1 June 2007 on Steelwork Maschine.
This is Nicolas Crombez’s third album under the moniker Deuterror, the first two being internet-only releases.
The album title “Le Gueule de Guerre” is French for “The Mouth of War”.
I think I’m probably stretching boundaries quite a bit to categorise this album as metal, but we’ll run with it. It’s hard to pigeonhole exactly (which is always a good sign in my book). It’s broadly dark, ambient / drone / industrial.
The album certainly has a cinematic feel to it. Like the soundtrack to a really bleak, post-apocalyptic movie. It’s subtle, it’s atmospheric, and I really enjoyed it.
Nine untitled tracks, which Last.fm helpfully labelled with Roman numerals, so I have followed suit. Here are my notes on the nine tracks:
And there it is. 43 minutes and 55 seconds worth of various noises.
I rather liked this album. It’s interesting, it’s experimental, at times uncomfortable, always challenging.
