    La Ligne Apre

    [engl] Formed in 2006 TORMENTA is currently the meeting between Vincent Beysselance (drums, cello) and Jeff Grimal (guitar) who had in the past and present major and decisive musical experiences (Cheval de frise, Elusiv, Let Jesus Bleed). The first album, with 7 tracks, ‘La ligne âpre’, is to be released in February 2011 on Africantape. Recorded and mixed by Tormenta with the valuable help of Mathieu Pascal (Gorod, Bud Records) and the participation of Esteban Rodière. Mastering by Globe Audio. This recording is the result of a two-year work, born from a passion for dark and oppressive atmospheres. ‘La ligne âpre’ is based on a project that retains the vitality and gravity of metal music but tends to belong to no definite musical style. Careful consideration of the structure led to numerous productions that we had to put together to create tension, avoid weariness or to do away with evidence. The work on rhythmic or melodic superpositions or convergences has sometimes created involuntary hypnotic effects. However our desire to preserve the coherence, the link and harmony between the different elements has allowed us to avoid the trap of technical coldness. The lyricism is clearly defined. There are random and arbitrary elements in this recording which have led us to proceed by trial and error and this has led to the development of a totally new style. In the end, the 7 tracks of ‘La ligne âpre’ waver between avant-garde music and more conventional references. The recording technique must remain secret.
