Salut,

Les deux premières chroniques de la tape d'ATAVISMA sont apparues, elles se trouvent à la fin de ce message!

35 promos physiques ont été envoyées, ou sont sur le point de l'être, et d'autres suivront... Donc pas mal de chroniques seront publiées!
A une époque ou les labels n'envoient générallement que des promos digitals en mp3s, et continuent d'innonder les chroniqueurs avec plus de liens chaque jour, je crois que c'est important de distribuer quelque chose de physique qui ne se retrouve pas instantanément perdu dans un océan de données virtuelles ou d'arguments marketing déconnectés de la réalité.

Les échanges sont possibles, donc cotnactez moi si ça vous intéresse...

If you are a little like me in that the emergence of UK super group Vallenfyre excites you on many levels then get set for more thrills in the form of French band Atavisma and their debut demo "Where Wolves Once Dwelled", a four track, twenty minute ode to perverse blackness, sickening menace and slowed down death metal sinisterness! Opening with the harrowing cry of "I am the Infadel!, Atavisma seem to take you back to a millenium gone by when swords clashed and blood was spilled in the sun drenched lands of the distant brown skinned foe who "God" deemed it necessary to purge from their land in blood and violence, a message portrayed through his man appointed mouth piece (The Pope) and whose words spread like wild fire and bathed the middle east in gore and pain! Atavisma take you there superbly with such engrossing lyrics as "You call yourself civilized, but you want us neutralized, Let the ancient spirit flow to you, and understand our point of view" and all shrouded with slow, down tuned reverb fueled riffs, dark pummeling melodies and the constant aura of death, darkness and mournful eras past!
Atavisma may not have the big budget production of Vallenfyre but in terms of heart, passion and a devastating sound they are definitely on the same wave-length and while VF we're created to unleash emotions regarding a family bereavement, Atavisma appear to have been formed to speak out against and strike a hammer blow to the cruelty of man kind and condemn the outrages that have been undertaken in the name of God and religion against fellow man and against nature (See tracks such as "Nature's Warfare). So let saracen swords swing powerfully in your minds eye as Atavisma's crushing musical display and thought provoking lyrical messages wash over you and rejoice in the birth of an epic new band, one who put as much strength and energy into their song writing, displaying superb melodies, dense and bleak soundscapes and thundering riffs, as they do their meaningful lyrical output! 85%. Luke Hayhurst

Goed nieuws, het debuut van het Franse Atavisma is sinds kort te verkrijgen op tape! Aangezien atavisme in zijn neo-heidense context verwijst naar een terugkeer naar de primitiviteit en het omarmen van onze dierlijke eigenschappen, is een release op tape meer dan toepasselijk. Het is een beetje zonde dat Where Wolves Once Dwelled geplaagd gaat onder een redelijk primitieve productie, maar dat zal dan wel toepasselijk zijn.
Deze Fransen spelen zware, donkere death-/doommetal, met trage riffs, diepe grunts en een dreigende sfeer. Opener The Savage One is veruit het beste nummer, met een loodzware eerste minuut en doommetal met een beetje peper in de poep. De rest van deze demo is poep zonder peper, trage, lichtjes krakende doommetal met eentonige vocalen en weinig verrassingen. De solo’s op Where Wolves Once Dwelled doen nochtans vermoeden dat hier een vaardige gitarist met potentieel aan het werk is. De drummer is dan weer grotendeels onzichtbaar. Een plaatje dat het een en ander belooft, maar voor een verbetering zullen deze heren toch een deel van hun primitiviteit aan de kant moeten schuiven. Ze proberen het wel met de kort-maar-krachtige afsluiter Nature’s Warfare, maar die bevestigt vooral dat er hier meer mogelijk is.

BRUTALISM Webzine (Hol)
Originally a digital release but also released on tape by Nihilistic Holocaust, this is heavy as hell French death/doom, more so of the style of Asphyx. The production is extremely dirty and rather inviting, although you may find some difficulties picking out all of the vocal sounds due to the more often than not muddy production. But bleakness is the key here.
Once you play with your equalizer settings, you will hear much to get excited about. Ok, a lot of bands do this style; a lot of bands of a much bigger stature get credit for this style. When you think that there are bands like this around, then you really appreciate what this band can do and how they should be spoke about in line with larger outfits. ‘The Savage One’ sounds like and delivers its message with an often harrowing vocal wail, a down dirty but almost torturous delivery feeds your senses and makes the track sound a lot more expansive than perhaps it is. The pattern is similar for the remainder of the EP and the full range of the recording quality is captured very nicely. The short acoustic section of the title track even produces a sinister feeling, before being annihilated when the guitars and distortion kicks in. If you were to take the Swedeath guitar tone, cross swords with bands like Disma for the filthy guitar sound, the aforementioned Asphyx and to some extent the bleak horror of Triptykon for the speed of the release, then you have a perfect match. It is certainly not pretty, but it is certainly entertaining.
This is the best form of doom death, bare bone crushing heaviness at its near best. I look forward to more material by this bunch of rotten souls. Paul Maddison. 4/5


CONTAMINATED TONES Blog (Usa)
Dirtier than a crusty herpes covered pair of shit smeared lips wrapped around a dusty dildo, Where Wolves Once Dwelled, Atavisma's debut demo, will appeal to death metal die-hards that just can't find enough pleasure in the sounds of gurgling vocals and guitars as thick as quicksand. As if there wasn't enough unholy death metal demo tapes out there to pick up, add this to the list and luckily, this one is easily available and ready to be sucked dry. The trio, based in France (as is label Nihilistic Holocaust) get a lot of noise from the lack of numbers but they also capture more discerning ears when they incorporate disgusting lead melodies into their brand of sewage. In many ways, this reminds me of Mandatory's Where They Bleed with the super swampy guitar tones and powerful riffing. Still, an adept attention to songwriting is at play and should live up to the scrutiny of fans. With bands like Horrendous getting a ton of attention with their recent releases, the primordial ooze is bubbling here with the possibilities of a similar - though hopefully less polished - trajectory.
Where Wolves Once Dwelled opens with the boiling "The Savage One," slowly pummeling and writhing along. Vocalist - unnamed on the insert as are the other two members - is capable of some excellent guttural vocals and uses the talent all across this demo. They are perfect when paired with the ugliness of the material here. The remind of Undergang, Timeghoul or Iniquity on Serenadium. Atavisma's love of Swedish death metal is shown in "Forsaken" and "Nature's Warfare," the shorter of the four tracks. Grave and Entombed - to no one's surprise - are present in many riffs without being pure rip-offs. The title track is the highlight for me, opening it's length with some clean yet sinister guitar plucking before launching into a twisting doom tinted riff. The song is the ugliest, but also most complex with an extended instrumental section where once again clean guitars mimic the intro but are accompanied by tense drumming to create a dense malevolent mist.
This longer track would have been a better opening track for Where Wolves Once Dwelled but the fact it exists here is enough to give me some dirty and ugly thoughts. Even the usage of 'dwelled' instead of the proper 'dwelt' gives just that additional personality which I enjoy, even if it would make an English teacher tear at their eye sockets. As usual with Nihilistic Holocaust's releases, the tape labels are a little skimpy, and not a lot of material is present on the insert which is a little of a bummer but with my only musical gripe being how set back the percussion is in the mix, this is one of those pleasurable items that ends up in my collection and one I would recommend to others interest in quality death metal demos.

Demos, Demos, it is really hard to find good Demos nowadays, but these trio from France called ATAVISMA which by the way got together in 2013 and thank God for that!! have given us a fucking good Demo released in cassette, I love cassettes it is so pure fucking Metal.
France have given us some awesome bands and they keep on doing it, SORTILEGE, AGRESSOR, KILLERS, SATANS JOKKERS, ADX, NIGHTMARE… and now ATAVISMA in your face with pure Death Doom Metal and rotting away that flesh that one has forgotten… The cassette start rolling with "The savage One" pure ASPHYX , heavy, dirt and full of hate, I can smell the stench of Death filling the air, the guitars are heavy with that Swedish sounding and the bass lines a heavy as fuck!! Heavy and dirty drumming, it has that dark vibe all over, I can feel all the goosebumps forming over my body.
There is no salvation for you my friend, I am the "Forsaken" and I will get you, Death and Doom have now joined forces and the result is ATAVISMA, old school style straight to the point, everything is thick as blood, the guitars, vocals, bass and drums, shit all over your face and if you don’t like I don’t care, this is great music, and it is only a Demo, I wonder what next is coming from these awesome trio.
"Where The Wolves Once Dwelled" I do not really know, what I know is that France has given us this fucking awesome band, mean to the core, they have an unique sound and I truly hope they do not change anything for the next album, it sounds great, slow pace like a funeral song and fast beats like pure old school Death Metal, a masterpiece indeed like MENTAL FUNERAL by AUTOPSY.
"Nature's Warfare" bring the drapes down with style, killer vocals, harsh and deep tearing your flesh away, great riffs very catching, amazing, everything works well with precision. As production goes, fucking excellent, more please, art cover is very good too, please give me more!!!!

METAL REVOLUTION Webzine (Hol)
Despite only being a demo, Atavisma's Where the Wolves Once Dwelled still managed to impress me, quite a bit even. The labels own introduction of the band compared them to Death Metal legends such as Entombed, Funebrarum and their ilk, which I did not give much notice, since many bands claim such influences without it being audible in their own sound. In the case of Atavisma, however, I heard it as plain as day and would even go so far as to make a slight comparison to Obituary as well.
The music is immensely heavy (Doom-like heavy), slow and efficient, without becoming depressive or anything else other than a genuine onslaught on the ears. The incredibly low-pitched growl delivered by the lead singer helps bind everything together in a nice, little bundle of old-school Death Metal yet still managing to create their own distinct sound, exactly the way it should be. Where the Wolves Once Dwelled impressed me greatly and I cannot wait to get my hands on a full-length album as opposed to a four-track demo such as this. Brian. 90/100


ROCK VAULT Webzine (Turkey)
Uzun zamandır topluluklardan mektup almıyorduk. Fransa’dan gelen (Nihilistic Holocaust) zarfın içinden ne çıkacağını tahmin etmekte zorlandık. İçini açtığımızda Atavisma’ya ait olduğunu görünce merak edip CD’yi çalıcımıza taktık. CD diyorum, bu bir demo ve bu sene başında dijital olarak yayınlandı. Zaten topluluğun başka herhangi bir alnümü yok ve geçmişleri geçen seneye dayanıyor. Elemanlar hakkında ayrıntılı bilgi bulunmasa da nadir bulunan grup fotoğraflarında 3 kişi oldukları görülüyor. “Where Wolves Once Dwelled” demosunun tarzı death/doom metal ve yaklaşık 20 dk. süren eser bu tarzda müzik dinleyenlerin ilgisini çekebilir. Bunu laf olsun diye söylemiyorum, ister bu tarzın kurdu olun, ister olmayın; Atavisma daha ilk demosuyla kendi atmoslerini yaratmış diyebiliriz. Çalıştıkları firma Nihilistic Holocaust’a göre bu albümde Funebrarum, Incantation ve Entombed’dan etkilenilmişlikleri fark edeceksiniz. Biraz daha araştırdığımızda Atavisma’yı Engulfed, Burial Invocation gibi ekiplerimize benzetenler de var görünüyor.
Tüm bunların haricinde Amerikan topluluk Disma’yla çok benzerliklerini gördüm diyenler de yok değil. Dinleyicilerin bu grubu kimlere benzettikleri bir yana dursun (dürüst söyleyeyim; üstteki hiç bir gruba benzemiyor), Atavisma’nın “doğa, insanoğlu ve atavizm” ile ilgilendiğini belirtelim. Daha da ileri gidelim, belki “atavizm” nedir bilmeyenler olabilir (ki ekibin adıyla bile alakalı), atavizm; “Organizmalarda evrimsel gelişim süresince ortadan kalkan bazı özelliklerin tekrar görülmesi, soya çekim, atacılık” demek. Örnek vermek gerekirse; bir canlıda, kuşaklar boyunca kaybolmuş özelliklerin ortaya çıkması. Maymun gibi kuyruklu bir insan doğarsa bu atavizm oluyor. Bunlar liriksel olarak bilmemiz gerekenlerdi. Müzik olarak bilmemiz gerekenler; vokalistin yaptığı iş bu demoda başarılı, seçtikleri ana rif ve melodiler ile parçalar yürüyor, bateri noktasında topluluk yeterince hızlı tempolu değil; “değilse değildir” diyeceksiniz lakin yeri geldiğinde atak bekliyorsunuz ama bulamıyorsunuz. Bu demonun dijitali de, kasedi de, CD’si de var. Kirli kayıt seven, yeraltını tırmalayan, çalınmış olan tarzı seven eski kafa bir arşivciyseniz Nihilistic Holocaust ile bağlantıya geçmenizi öneririm. 3/5


BRUTAL CARNAGE Webzine (Rus)
Все адекватные персонажи могут заняться своими делами, а вот заскорузлых олдфагов мы просим придвинуться поближе к экранам ламповых мониторов. Сегодня вашему вниманию представлено дебютное демо парижской нечестивой троицы Atavisma с симптоматичной вывеской "Where Wolves Once Dwelled". Данный музыкальный прожект имеет высокосветское парижское происхождение, однако звучит данный релиз так, словно записывали его студеной февральской ночью в лесной чаще, неподалеку от пригородов Стокгольма, причем лет этак 25 тому назад. Материал подается его авторами как "oldschool death metal influenced by Incantation, Funebrarum, Entombed". Ну, насчет стилистической принадлежности они не соврали - стафф демо несет в себе 4 сырых трэка, выполненных в традициях примитивного и прямолинейного смерть-метала махровых шведских кондиций конца 80-х / начала 90-х, причем сыгранных достаточно коряво и погано. Хотя, хуй знает, скорее всего такова была концепт-идея "Where Wolves Once Dwelled" - продемонстрировать всему андеграунду неувядающую мощь старой школы, но не выгорело дельце, ахаха!Особых равнений на Incantation и Funebrarum я здесь не услышал, соотнести материал "Where Wolves Once Dwelled" можно разве с плеядой третьесортных бандочек, коими скандинавская дэт-сцена кишила во времена собственного расцвета. Характерный звукан, с узнаваемым каждым олдскульщиком песочным тембром, Atavisma нарулила верно, а вот с качеством материала вышла капитальная промашка. Не особо-то он и цепляет, чтобы выстраиваться в очередь за "Where Wolves Once Dwelled". Больше всего стафф напомнил мне финнов Desecresy - такое же унылое и безыдейное бренчание по струнам при солидарной поддержке туповато-монотонной драм-машинки. Хотите действительно качественного олдскула, одержимого ностальгической атмосферой? Тогда обратите свои взоры в сторону германских Mandatory, Slaughterday или шведов Entrails, вот где действительно недооцененные таланты вызревают, перевариваясь в собственном соку! А катать вату, подобно тому, как это делает Atavisma - дело нехитрое. Кароч, стафф для самых закоренелых и наглухо пробитых олдскульщиков, остальным он вооще никуда не упирался.
