Infernal Heights For A Drama
For more than 5 years now, Belgium-based Jérôme Deuson has produced post-folk/electronic music as his solo act, aMute. He has released two albums on the Canadian label intr_version and toured most of the European countries, Canada and the USA. Since 2008, the project turned into a brand new band of four people, now including Samuel Volan (bass), Thomas Venegoni (guitars, keys) and Stéphane Fedele (drums). This is their first release as such. Infernal Heights For A Drama is an album full of introspective songs, psychedelic approaches, yet accessible compositions. Their music draws a thin line between indie-rock, post-folk and electronic, yet none of these genres can exactly apply to the rich array of artistry heard here: loud, roaring, dark electronics, swathes of guitar wash, and echoing, disembodied vocals. Using a wide diversity of sounds and instruments, aMute is now ready for a fuller, fresher start. Featuring guest musicians such as Robert Toher (Apse), Joseph Costa (L'Altra), Mitchell Akiyama (Désormais), Bryce Kushnier (Do Make Say Think, Vitaminsforyou), and Jean-Paul Dessy (Musiques Nouvelles).
