sound on probation. sop015

in 1997, laurent perrier puts an end to the nox experience, one of the major bands of the french industrial rock scene, to launch a new solo project, cape fear, with which he delivers a first album (drift towards the heat) combining breakbeat, sampling and metal guitars. twelve years later, cape fear is back with a second album, winds of the dead air. five long titles, dark and strangely hypnotic, where guitars and metal riffs literally crash on a groovy bass/drum rythmic line. the sequencers and the unique sound of the moog synthesizer give to this record some kind of a ambient 70's flavor while the quality and intensity of the compositions will remind the listener of chrome, king crimson, neurosis and this heat. limited 300 copies.
