CD review IGORRR 'Spirituality and Distortion'

Igorrr’s music is special and for sure not run-of-the mill. The band, being the brainchild of French musician Gautier Serre stretch the frames of Metal and other genres by combining many and difrerent influences to rather unique sound collage.

‘Spirituality and Distortion’ takes time and wants to be uncovered step by step. Breakcore, Metal and Classic collides and the title ‘Spirtuality and Distortion’ descriptivly describes what to expect from the 14 songs that made it on the newst longplayer.

Spiritual moments like ‘Camel Dancefloor’ are one aspect of Igorrr and the new album while ‘Nervous Waltz’ lasers in more on Symphonic Metal with Classic music vocals, a wicked mix that needs a few moment to grow. The spectrum of styles couldn’t be much bigger than what ‘Spirituality and Distortion’ offers. There is the massive ‘Parpaing’ with now less than Cannibal Corpse George ‘Corpsegrinder’ Fisher adding deep growls to the mix while on the other end of the scale songs like ‘Himalaya Massive Ritual’ shines by a mix of Asian music, Metal and Classic. Last but not least there’s the maximum of complexity that comes with ‘Very Noise’, a wicked song that could be the musical interpretation of ADHS.

Igorrr again stresses the frames of Rock, Metal,… This kind of music will never reach the many, which probably is a good thing. It’s music that reflects creative freedom without looking on sales figures and numbers of sold albums. ‘Spirituality and Distortion’ is distracting, challenging and ingeniously weird.
