death & the maiden
program notes by brice catherin:
death & the maiden was an ephemeral experimental metal project by frÃ©dÃ©ric danel (voice) and brice catherin (e-cello). we invited the amazing stÃ©phane galland (drums) to join. our concept was pretty straight-forward: we tried to understand what the essence of metal consisted of. we then focused strictly on this essential material and developed it into this single track (from a live performance in geneva). we now have the pleasure to share with you seven years later.
i remember shortly after this aforementioned performance, we had a second (and last) concert in a metal festival. obviously this was not what the hardcore metal audience was expecting, but still, a bunch of metal fans literally kneeled in front of frÃ©dÃ©ric at the end of the gig. that was moving.
frÃ©dÃ©ric danel – voice

31st of may 2011, cinÃ©ma spoutnik, geneva.
probably recorded and mastered by frÃ©dÃ©ric and brice, but we cannot really remember.
