PAYDRETZ - Sets A Release Date For A Debut And Reveals The First Track

On 8 October, Antiq is proud to present Paydretz's striking debut album, Chroniques De l'Insurrection - on digipack CD format. In the meantime, hear the brand-new track from the upcoming album, "Le Tocsin nous Appelle", unveiled only yesterday awaits you in the player below.

Hailing from the western part of France, Paydretz is a black/folk metal project focusing on the war in the Vendée and the Chouannerie (a French rebellion against the revolution). Through epic, violent, and melodic black metal, with vehement and sometimes traditional music, they try to depict the context of civil war at the dawn of the modern era. Atmospheric and epic guitars supported by pounding powerful drums, their music sometimes alternates with blackened folk metal in the tradition of the great French great forebears of the style.

The first album of Paydretz, Chroniques De l'Insurrection is an echo of the Vendée epic story, explaining the great moments of the war in the Vendée between 1793 and 1796. It's a dive into the fire of troubled times, through a long musical journey, powerful and authentic, with many traditional music influences. With 14 songs, this first opus is a complete narration of this war. Atmospheric and brutal for its genre of black folk, it lets some space through to melodies and choirs. Link
