Argonauta Records has inked a record deal with French blackened post metal outfit Eyes Front North. The label comments:
"In 2010, after several years playing in the French metal band Ambryo, Lionel Forest (vocals/guitar), Nicolas Simon (guitar) and Victor Turhan (bass) decided to create a studio project called to explore new directions. They composed a lot and succeeded in developing a dark, hypnotic and deeply evocative music.
"The band worked 2 years with Conny Petterson from Swedish death metal band Anata as session drummer. They released together an EP - which received great reviews from all over the world - and a split 7" with French progressive metal band The Black Noodle Project available here.
"In 2013, the time came to rehearse and to play live, so the band recruited Xavier Domergue as a real drummer. This new musician brought something very unique that gave EFN new horizons. The new album is scheduled to be released by spring 2016, mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley at the Atomic Garden in San Francisco."
The band says: “Hi Folks! We, the 4 of Eyes Front North - known as Lionel, Nicolas, Victor and Xavier - are very proud and happy to announce that we signed with Italian label Argonauta Records. We are really in a hurry to present you our amazing record, produced by Jack Shirley who worked for Deafheaven. Thanks Gero of Argonauta for your trust!” More...
Eyes Front North is streaming it's recent three song EP over at Bandcamp. Eyes Front North is a studio project created in 2010 by Lionel Forest (vocals/guitar), Nicolas Simon (guitar) and Victor Tuhran (bass). Eyes Front North mixes metal with other musical styles such as post-rock, hardcore, doom and black metal, leading to a kind of hybrid or crossover full of loud guitars.
The first EP was partly recorded in the Dual Switch Cuts Studio in Vincennes (France). The drums parts were performed and recorded by drummer Conny Pettersson of the Swedish death metal band Anata in Sweden on February 2011. The mix and mastering was made in DSC Studio in May 2011. Fabrice Berger, drummer of progressive metal band The Black Noodle Project, joined the trio. This allowed EFN to play its first EP on stage opening for the French band SUP.
