Katharsys – Subsiders (Fusam metal smash up remake)

I was enjoying Katharsys latest EP Metallicity when I felt like there could be more Metal music into this than the title itself.
Hence, I grabbed my guitar and improvised riffs right upon the original mix of “Subsiders”, with some re-arrangements and additions to some of the rythmic structures.

I believe Katharsys is one of the most distinct Neurofunk and DNB producers out there, and it comes in the shape of the heaviest and the grooviest electronic rock n roll, this french duo is a true banger.

Heny plays a Gojira cover!

I still remember their interview on Metallian magazine back in 2005, when they claimed they were more of earthling humans living in France, rather than being literally french. The way they broke the notion of borders, the way they defended nature and other species and grew to become the greatest metal band on this planet.

This one goes for the Duplantier brothers. Thanks for the engagement, thanks for the inspirations.

“I went through the album many times, each added a new feeling,
a more surrealist sensation for me.
It was a reflection of the suffering of mankind somehow
yet holding the meaning of the exact opposite :
cruelty & vulnerability of mankind.

I chose to listen to this album in different times of the day and it got me the most at night
when I have the least control over my thoughts and emotions.

Quite an experience to dwell in this world”         Diana Koushha
