Plebeian Grandstand - Rien Ne Suffit
"The fall is near. What to follow?" On fourth full-length Rien ne suffit ("Nothing is enough") sui generis synthesists Plebeian Grandstand take a violent wrecking ball to the edifice of extreme music, remolding the pieces as a mirror-portal into psychological, societal and global turmoil. Always unpredictable and extraordinary, the band create constant tightrope-walk tension as they blur the edges of avant-black metal, chaotic hardcore, blown-out jazz, corrosive noise, experimental electronica and death Industrial into an ultra-contemporary form of 'post-metal' in the truest application of the term. Conceptualized, played and recorded by the band and producer Amaury Sauvé as a piece of aural filmmaking, Rien ne suffit is a courageous, challenging and mind-bendingly unique record from a peerless band operating at peak powers. Hypersensitive introspection-mania made flesh.
