Inspired by their "peculiar" aural experiments and also by his friend Matthieu Maire from Celluloid Mata (who had just created his label with Steph Alt, "Vaccum"), Trémorin decided to start his own label. Thus, in December 2000, Brume Records was born. Under the pseudonym of Flint Glass, he made his debut with the full-length album 'Hierakonpolis'. And indeed, he could not introduce himself in a more convincing way. This debut is described by critics as representing some of the most innovative stylings towards rhythmic noise and dark ambient genres. Production-wise this is quite a dark recording, staying clear of the crisp, punchy approach of artists such as Mlada Fronta, for example. Coldness and warmth are constantly fighting for predominance here and the quasi-total absence of vocals makes it an extremely visionary record which would be a perfect match for a number of movie soundtracks portraying scenarios varying from post apocalyptic to foggy northern woods, from lunar landscapes to horror aberrations. Deeply disturbing and yet unequivocally enjoyable and morbidly relaxing.
Overall, this album serves as a perfect demonstration of the great potential of this new talent. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
