French blackened sludge duo Vous Autres are poised to release their debut full-length, Champ du Sang, on March 1 via Sludgelord Records. Following the band’s 2017 EP, Trente Pièces d’Argent, Champ du Sang sees the band exploring the darker, more haunting aspects of their sound, which is supported by scathing lyrics dealing with the delusions of human nature and the contemporary world.
In anticipation of its release next month, we at Svbterranean bring you an exclusive stream of the record’s sprawling second track, “Pauvre Animal, Simple Pantin”. The six-minute tune features monstrous, caustic doom instrumentation that is swallowed by malevolent, overbearing atmospherics. The song embarks on this cacophonous death march, which is spearheaded by venomous vocals, through most of the track before reaching a deeply melancholic climax. Check it out for yourself below.

I used to not really like The Body. I never considered them a metal band, even though that was where they had more or less made their nest early on.

I saw them as maybe a particularly dark, doomy, and experimental noise band, but still did not understand the hype. Continue Reading
