Creature (FRA) - To Release Third Album Next Month

Progressive black metal band Creature (FRA), operated by multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Raphaël Fournier, will unleash new album and third one in less than three years. Dubbed Ex Cathedra, it is set to land in stores on June 26th through I, Voidhanger. The whole music output was written, performed and recorded by Raphaël himself (between June 2019 and March 2020 in Bretagne, France), who also created the cover artwork. First tunes have already been released. Give it a spin below.

Official statement from the label regarding the album: Despite the meticulous arrangements and the complex geometric shapes exhibited, Ex Cathedra is surprisingly coherent and by no means a collage of sounds, nor a genre-hopping mess. Fournier has digested all of his influences to create his own progressive black metal style, his spectacular songwriting holding everything together in a natural way. Accompanied by soul-clenching lyrics, the music breathes, expands and contracts before soaring to unexpected heights, towards an oneiric hyperuranion where gorgeous melodies and atmospheres of cosmic beauty await. Alternately energetic, thrilling, poetic and melancholic (often all at once), Creature (FRA)'s Ex Cathedra stays always surprising and inebriating, with a sense of grandeur pervading it all.
