The self-proclaimed electro-punk-noize-terrorists Chrysalide have returned with their second full length album, “Don’t Be Scared, It’s About Life” – and what a disc it is! Though many people will make obvious Skinny Puppy comparisons, this album is no mere clone. It could easily be the soundtrack to someone’s nightmares or in the day of an insane asylum.
2010 was a busy and interesting year for French cyberpunk band Chrysalide and, with a new album “Don’t Be Scared, It’s About Life” coming out soon (and a tour to go with that) Syco, Arco and Amnesy won’t be slowing down anytime soon. We got the chance to talk to Syco and Arco about their music projects, Audiotrauma, life on tour, politics and just how people react to their Pink Floyd cover…
DBMG/RAF “Black Block (feat. Savvy C)” + Chrysalide “Anger is a Show”
Starting a new sub-section dedicated to video highlights we present a few pieces by artists from the French collective/label Audiotrauma: Chrysalide, Lewsor and F.Y.D.
“Ingérence” collects a small selection of rare Ex_Tension material consisting of colaborative material, remixes and a tribute piece to Jhonn Balance of Coil. An excellent oportunity to hear reinterpretations of the work of artists as diverse as .cut, Chrysalide and Geomatic and understand how the sound of experimental music legends Coil influenced this talented French duo.
