Unearthing The Experimental Metal Underground

Metal has long been defined by a variety of regimented and easily recognizable genres, such as thrash, death, black, etc. Most bands bring in a few outside influences to keep the music fresh and prevent a total adherence to one particular idea, but there is now a rising tide of bands that ditch the idea of a single style altogether. Going by names such as “avant-garde” or “experimental” or “post-any genre you’d like,” they may start with a base that is familiar, but their overall sound is far too fluid to stick to one identifier.

Furia Keyboardist Leaves Band

Season Of Mist has issued the following statement:

"FURIA and Season Of Mist are sad to announce that Mehdi Khadouj (keyboards and backing vocals) will leave the band after the last three shows scheduled (see below).

Mehdi wishes to focus exclusively on his band BEYON-D-LUSION, in which he plays guitar. We all wish him good luck for the future, but please note he will stay close to Furia, and will probably appear on stage with the band from time to time.

Mehdi won't be replaced, since Furia's most recent songs are all about power and guitars, and the keyboards will take a smaller part in the band's future."

1 - Talange (57) (FR) Salle Jacques Brel ( with Beyon-D-Lusion and Two Tone Club)

Furia Prepare For Live Shows

FURIA recently spent four days at the Florida rehearsal facilities in Agen, France, to prepare for their upcoming live shows.

Last but not least, they worked on close collaboration with their light and sound engineers to develop new ideas and make sure your eyes and ears will be totally blown away next time you see the band live.
