Back in 2019, Kreationist released its first EP «Indulgence» (which you can hear and order at the bottom of the piece), one where black metal met trip hop and poetry by legendary French transgressive author Arthur Rimbaud. The Belgium project is now set to release its first full-length «Dans L’Interminable», one which is said to mix “atmospheric doom/black metal with ambient music and post-metal, but with better production and an exquisite songwriting focused on crepuscular melodies.” This time around, the literary inspiration comes from Paul Verlaine, with solo Kreationist member Vidi explaining that the project “was born from my fascination with Paris’ Fin de Siecle period, the end of the 19th century,” adding that “while spiritual seances and satanism were going mainstream, a loose gathering of poets, ‘les Poetes Maudits’, made it their mission to turn poetry upside down and inside out. Among them, Paul Verlaine stood out with his decadent symbolism and iconoclastic verses.” The musician, who has further recorded, mixed, and mastered the whole album, further explains the writing process as stemming from “whatever it takes to make the song flow and the words come across. Limiting yourself to one single music genre or style would significantly narrow down the different forms a song can take.” Below, listen to the album’s first single, «Il Pleure Dans Mon Coeur». Accompanying it is the record’s cover, the «Le Reve» painting, authored by Pierre Puvis de Chavannes in 1883.
«Dans L’Interminable» is set for release on November 26 through I, Voidhanger on cd and digital formats. Pre-orders can be found here (cd) and here (digital).
