Animalize - 'Samouraï de l'Univers' (video)

Au crépuscule d’un énième jour, d’une existence
Des âmes se brulent tour à tour dans l’insolence
Tapi dans l’ombre, tu assassines
Pour que la lumière domine

Samouraï de l’Univers
Tu terrasses le mal par le fer
Ton devoir s’achève au cimetière

Visions de rage et de drames te hantent les nuits
Entends ce qu’il te reste d’âme hurler à l’agonie
Pour l’équilibre, la foi et la paix
Tu ne peux faire taire l’acier

Samouraï de l’Univers
Tu terrasses le mal par le fer
Ton devoir s’achève au cimetière

Samouraï, prisonnier des serres
Du tourment de l’Univers
Ton fardeau réside au cimetière

Οι Animalize μας έρχονται από την Γαλλία. Heavy metal συγκρότημα, το οποίο δημιουργήθηκε πριν από τέσσερα χρόνια κι έχει κυκλοφορήσει ένα ep ("Tapes from the Crypt") πρόπερσι. Ο πρώτος "ολοκληρωμένος" δίσκος είναι προ των πυλών. Τιτλοφορείται "Meat We're Made Of" και αναμένεται την τελευταία ημέρα του πρώτου καλοκαιρινού μήνα...

Ο δίσκος των Animalize 'Meat We're Made Of'
Δελτίο τύπου: «Dying Victims Productions is proud to present the highly anticipated debut album of France’s Animalize, Meat We're Made Of, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

The roots of France’s Animalize go back to 2014, when the moniker was first chosen, but their lineup didn’t solidify until 2018. From the beginning, the power-trio’s influences were set: heavy metal from the ‘70s and ‘80s, but specifically the likes of Loudness, W.A.S.P., Tokyo Blade, Glenn Tipton, Ritchie Blackmore, Glenn Hughes, and Annihilator and especially classic French heavy metal like ADX, Malediction, Sortilège and Warning.

Synthwave and New Wave, both old and new, also musically influence Animalize. However, it is the band’s love of movies which arguably influences Animalize’s outlook the most. For them, a visual identity and atmosphere – whether in their visual aesthetic, be it artwork or onstage, or especially their upcoming videos - is of the utmost importance.

Film also feeds their lyrics, quite often. The band states that such movies as Evil Dead, Mad Max, Pet Sematary, Masters of the Universe, and Terminator are among their most beloved. Armed with these noble touchstones, Animalize released their debut EP, Tapes from the Crypt, in 2020.

A swift and solid 20 minutes, the EP displayed massive promise from Animalize, which they’ve handily surpassed with their full-length debut, Meat We're Made Of. Graced again with an unforgettable cover, Meat We're Made Of is a breathless and breathtaking statement.

Its sound races all over the place, from cruising speed to tricky detours to headbanging mid-tempos, with an organized sort of mayhem, as explosive solos and dramatic vocal layering turn these nine beguiling songs into impossible anthems.

That sound is undeniably HEAVY METAL, but Animalize manage to synthesize speed metal with power-thrash and traditional metal into a dizzying-yet-addicting blend that jumps across countries and even continents with insane ease.

It’s both futuristic and firmly rooted in the past, and the album’s sterling production sharpens it to a katana. Maybe most amazingly, this dazzling interplay comes from a power-trio, but Animalize will become a quartet for upcoming live shows.

Likewise, Meat We're Made Of had, in fact, been finished for some time, but the band have prepared two music videos for its release which tell a story - eight actors in addition to the band, with tons of action and FX. Altogether, a suitably grand entrance for what will be one of metal’s most literally explosive debuts this year!»
