After a 5 -year silence, french post-hard-core/metal DEATH ENGINE unleash their third album "Ocean" - now out since January 13, 2023 on Throatruiner & Code Records.
The band has also a video out, introducing the song "Leaden Silence".
"Leaden Silence" is a title that evokes that double feeling of helplessness and guilt in the face of the serious events that humanity faces, whether we speak of the wars or the condition of the migrants, or still when the desire to act & save lives is present, but the means to get there are absent.
Musically, "Leaden Silence" is the song that has completely changed the face of "Ocea". DEATH ENGINE do not hide the influences of bands like UNFOLD and HANGMAN'S CHAIR and the desire to explore a more pronounced heaviness. The formidable rise in tension that crosses this title, aims to be proportional to the anger that emanates from its words.
Born 1969, grew up with the NWOBHM sounds, musically educated with cult french magazines that were ENFER and METAL ATTACK, definitely nailed to the style when "The Number Of The Beast" by IRON MAIDEN was released... From 1982, it was clear life would never be the same ! Young & getting wild to the HEAVY sounds of SAXON, VENOM, BLACK SABBATH, MOTORHEAD, Young Fab also discovered thanks to school mates the NOISE, FILTH & FURY of Hard-Core/Punk bands like G.B.H, DISCHARGE, BROKEN BONES but also CRO-MAGS, BAD BRAINS, FUGAZI... and later on, through the 90's, everything that was ALTERNATIVE, EXPERIMENTAL, GRUNGE, INDUSTRIAL (SONIC YOUTH, NINE INCH NAILS, SOUDGARDEN, ALICE IN CHAINS)... Passion & curiosity grew up as years went by ... Fate was SEALED... no turning back ! No Music = No Life !
