☽︎ 🅆HITE 🅁ITUAL - Fall & Rise ☾
Just after dropping their debut album "In & Out", WHITE RITUAL are back with a very sensual music video! Enjoy "Fall & Rise" !
Wicca, Mysticism and electric atmospheres. This is what WHITE RITUAL stands for. Shaking up the french electro scene landscape is WHITE RITUAL's main quest! This darkwave foursome from Strasbourg sweeps away the stereotypes that restrict their musical vision of the 80s goth scene. Breaking old cliches of the darkwave scene, the French band with industrial, altpop and witchhouse influences takes inspiration from renowned artists such as KILLING JOKE, FKA TWIGS and CHELSEA WOLFE and mixes these with their own thrilling beats and melancholic melodies. Their lyrics dive into the complexity of human nature, life, love and death. A storytelling journey filled with mystery and magic.
Their new album 'In & Out' is the perfect example of their musical brilliance. The first song on the tracklist called 'Isis' immediately puts you in a dream-like state, in which you follow the whispers of frontwoman Coralie Setan into another world. The world of WHITE RITUAL. 'Light Glass' is an ode to the inevitable. The inevitable end of everything. The haunting vocals and melodic synthesisers support the deep lyrics and bring the song to life.

Like a thunderstorm, conjured up by ancient gods, the first single "Anacaona" of the upcoming third album "Compelle Intrare" by CHABTAN thunders up. Noisy guitars and plenty of double bass meet panpipes and Mesoamerican percussion on the latest work of the French Metal combo.
This rumbling mix of musical influences are combined to an unexpectedly impulsive sound carpet. CHABTAN adds a new exciting facet to the metal genre with this fiery mix of sounds. In doing so, CHABTAN unleash a true elemental force, as though bands like DARK TRANQUILLITY, AMON AMARTH, IN FLAMES, MESHUGGAH and SCAR SYMMETRY have been swallowed by a sinister jungle, and hammer their instruments out of its depths from then on.
Since 2011, Metalheads from Paris celebrate their sound and the band have already been on tour with heavyweights like NILE and SUFFOCATION. On "Compelle Intrare", CHABTAN celebrate their crunching and uncompromising sound over eleven tracks. "Compelle Intrare" evokes the colonization of Mesoamerican peoples by the Spanish conquistadors.

The dancefloor makes room for the xenomorph queen of this evening and her cyberpunk dance, followed by the beloved wasteland warrior Mad Max who’s here to spill some fuel and light the scene up! Anyone brave enough to ask cyberpunk chick Carrie out? Don’t worry, she doesn’t bite. But she might set you on fire. Not to mention that every good party needs great entertainment and ours appears to be a clown from Rob Zombie’s ‘House of 1000 corpses’! Show them your smile Captain Spaulding! Who’s that little girl dancing to industrial techno, you ask? Come closer and I ‘m sure that our little Esther will introduce herself…
The gates of the underworld open for our ‘Hellraiser’ celebrity guests who arrive with a dark electro ‘Pinheadbanger’ to keep you rocking out! The mic gets taken over by Ash from Evil Dead who is telling a story about the Necronomicon! If you spot some zombies after that, just ignore them! Need a break? You can visit the ‘Blair Witch’ in the forest behind the club for a ‘Coffin Rock’ session with intense industrial baroque music. Attention ! It’s close to midnight! Please keep your ‘Gremlins’ away from the food to ensure safety and order! The gothic rave continues with a dance off between the ‘Predator’ and ‘Chucky’ the murder puppet! ‘Chucky’ shakes the club up a bit with his 90s french hip hop track, a genre that hasn’t been heard in the EXTIZE universe before! A night so memorable that you will have goosebumps even 28 days later!
Not only is this concept album a sensational tribute to the horror and sci-fi stories from the 80s all the way to the 2000's that frontman Cyb3rella grew up with, but it's also going to be released as a digipak with 3D glasses and 3D booklet to properly take you back in time and make your listening experience even more exciting! As a bonus, EXTIZE is also releasing a collectors edition in the form of a VHS box with an audio cassette version of the album and many goodies from the movies that it's about!
