ASCÈTE premiere new track at

Today, rural black metal ruffians  Ascète  premiere the new track   "La Lanterne du Mort"   at heavily trafficked web-portal . The track is   the first to be revealed   from the band's highly anticipated debut album,  Calamites & les Calamités , set for international release on May 28th via  Antiq . Hear  Ascète 's "La Lanterne du Mort" in its entirety exclusively   HERE .

Created by Torve and Patrie Moine towards the end of 2015, then joined by Olematus on bass and Ancien Temps on drums,  Ascète  is a band whose atmosphere is filled by the soil where it grew: Black Périgord, or its local name of Peirigòrd Nègre, in South West France. It embodies the grim face of Périgord's ruined minor landmarks and its dark and strange folklore. Musically,  Ascète  creates a countryside black metal with a punk spirit, of which the music is carried by magnificent lines of melodic guitars and bass, drowning the whole towards cavernous dark depths of music, through which some epic lights still shine.
Calamites & les Calamités  is the first full-length of  Ascète . Through a rusty black metal, joyfully old,  Ascète  gives its vision of a forgotten and forlorn countryside, where the small, poor people of the rural lands slowly die in the shadow of indifference of big cities' administrations. Melodic black metal with punk/Oi! influences,  Calamites & les Calamités  haunts us in ridiculously different Périgord legends, carried by the decadent proclamations howled in an almost ruined, out-of-age barn... (vocals were actually recorded there). The magnificent work on guitars and sound will carry you to a forgotten countryside, where an aging population, almost feral and animal-looking, discretely and suspiciously wanders in its misery among the remains of minor historical landmark monuments, which return to Earth, too: slower, maybe, but in the same definitive manner.

Antiq  is a label dedicated to the fully coherent concept of making music through sound, image, video, and attitude. They have been putting their entire existence into it since 2009. Over the years,  Antiq  have been identified as producers of not only perfectly coherent lyrics and themes through music, but also conceptual art and, of course, the manufacturing of beautiful objects. The label tries as much as it can to work with French creators, and if possible, with the smallest and most serious structures.
