French boogie death metallers TREPALIUM announce new EP
Wednesday 26th November, 2014
Every so often there comes along a band who injects the mental back into metal; a band who reminds us all of the importance of simply having a good time. Stepping into the frame are French boogie death metal/swing metallers TREPALIUM
, who are pleased to announce their new EP Voodoo Moonshine
, scheduled for UK release on February 9th.
Have a watch of the first video from the EP here:
A tantalisingly unique cocktail of death metal attitude and 1930s-esque New Orleans jazz swing and bounce and booze, Voodoo Moonshine
fifth studio release. A short but sweet collection combining voodoo mysticism and prohibition speakeasy culture, Trepalium
serve up an enticingly potent form of foot-tapping groove metal. So strong is the swing that you’ll find yourself nodding along automatically – any listener who can resist the urge is either amazingly strong-willed, or just stone deaf. Keep an ear out for the band's accompanying jazz woodwind/brass group, as well as the appearance of Gojira’s Joseph Duplantier
on track 2, Damballa’s Voodoo Ball.
An active band for 13 years, Trepalium
are well-known in their native France. Having already sold thousands of albums and undertaken two tours with Gojira
, as well as playing Hellfest four times, Trepalium
are sure to draw many more listeners under their voodoo hoodoo.

2. Damballa’s Voodoo Ball
