Les Jumeaux Discordants - Sang pour sang CD

Sang pour Sang is the scond opus from Les Jumeaux Discordants after a sold out and acclaimed EP on Misty Circles. The recording is based on the ancient concepts of Katàbasis and Anàbasis and is divided in two sections: the first is made by obscure and sinister atmospheres; the second is more lyrical.

Musically Sang pour Sang is the perfect balance between the best neoclassical ambiances and martial industrial with an Art Nouveau’s touch. Les Jumeaux Discordants is musically and spiritually in the tradition of italians ritualistic and electronic formation like T.A.C. or Kirlian Camera’s Schmerz period.

Using heavy percussions, one can expect the right mixtures wich made famous Les Joyaux de la Princesse, Camerata Mediolanense, Les Sentiers Conflictuels, Blood Axis, In Slaughter Natives or Dead Can Dance. The band might be the one we were waiting for since the split of The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath a Cloud.

About the theme, LJD faces up to the Angelo Tonelli's poetry: the founder of the Ritomodernist wave, a cultural italian wave fighting for the Tradition. Beyond the cooperation of this great personality of the contemporary philosophy there's the cooperation of the famous cellist Zeno Gabaglio from Switzerland and Daniela Bedeski from Camerata Mediolanense.

Les Jumeaux Discordants is a project born in 2005 by the union of two pre-existent projects: The Last Hour and Aimaproject. The first is a musical project born in 2004; the second is born in 1996 and it works in various expressive fields: litterature, photography, music. Aimaproject works with many musical projects.

The CD is presented as a 6 pages digifile with a 12 pages booklet.

Shinkiro : Way of the Gods

Athanor is proud to present the second album by japanese artist Manabu Hiramoto as Shinkiro

While the first album was urban and influenced by the deep dark atmospheres of the futuristic city of Osaka, Shinkiro’s new album focuss on a more personal path influenced by Shinto, Bouddhism and Manabu’s relocation by the country side.

The sound of the new album is made of deep dark soundscapes mixed with percussions, soundsources of rain, winds, sea, trees, waves and birds. Though the album is dark ambiant and ritualistic in essence, it also has a meditative and contemplative touch wich may please fans of Steeve Roach, Robert Rich or Alio Die.

As Kotodama, Manabu released a first CD for Vital and has a new collaboration CD with Contagious Orgasm is just out called « Black Out » on SSSM.

Shinkiro will play live in Hong-Kong on the 21st of december as an opening act for Jack or Jive, a famous japanese band with whom Manabu has already collaborated on three tracks in the past.

The CD is presented as a crystal box with clear tray. Artwork by Niko Skorpion that could remind works of J. Wozencroft for Touch.
