Second tape release for my drone/ambient project Hendiadys, a collaborative output with my friend Benjamin Moreau (Chose Morte/Huata/Fange). On this record we focused on using a variety of sound sources beyond the usual pedal feedback loop (guitar, synths, drum-machine, tape manipulation etc) while still maintaining our personal approach at constructing, layering and tweaking sounds.
C-20 white shell tape, comes in handmade sleeve packaging. Limited to 20 copies, 5€/France, 6€/Europe, 7€/$9/World, all ppd. You can buy through the shop section, our directly via our bandcamp page. The artwork comes from a series of xerox collages made in march 2014. You can see more at http://jeanbaptisteleveque.fr

Beware of the Sun ! Fange's first ep "Poisse" is now available on tape. Get ready for +30mn of crushing sludge/noise plus an exclusive 10mn noise track on side B ! Heavy down-tuned riffs blaring from big amps, vicious drum-shagging, good old screams, yells & shouts (in french s'il vous plaît) and abrasives noise/drone sprinkled atop for good measure.
The tape version comes in an over-sized VHS-like case, with laser-printed lyrics insert. 6€, shipping out, limited to 50 copies. Get in touch at contact.zugzwang at gmail.com. Fange features Ben from Huata at the guitar, Baptiste from Brain Pyramid on drums, and myself on vocals and noise. Mixing by Kristian Keyboard Productions and Mastered by Sylvain Biguet.

... with a new upcoming release : Fange first EP "Poisse" on tape !
Fange (meaning «mire» in french) plays harsh sludge, crushing riffs and hard beats.
All you will find here is a huge amount of fuzz and distortion, out of hand feedbacks, low tuning and big amps, heavy beats and fat kicks, distorted vocals and abrasive noises.
Sinking into a dirty and filthy sludge/noise to exorcise the human grime and primal idioms conveyed by summer and unbearable heats, Fange’s first effort will bury you into mud and oil.
If Nihilist would have played sludge on Sunn O))) amps, or if Bongzilla would have met Entombed at a Merzbow gig, it would have sounded like this.
You can listen to "Lucifour", a first extract from the whole 30mn EP whom should be available hopefully pretty soon. A CD version will be released on Cold Dark Matters Records.
The tape version will come in a VHS like case, with lyrics insert and an exclusive +10mn noise track on side B. This edition will be limited to 50 copies, and preorders are open ! Get in touch at contact.zugzwang at gmail.com.
Fange features Ben from Huata at the guitar, Baptiste from Brain Pyramid on drums, and myself on vocals and noise. Mixing by Kristian Keyboard Productions and Mastered by Sylvain Biguet.
