LA BREICHE 'LE MAL DES ARDENTS' CD (CSR224CD)
LA BREICHE ("the witch") features two well-known musicians: Arexis and Lafforgue of Stille Volk - a band best known since 1994 as one of the pioneers of Pagan Folk in Europe - and of Pagan Black French band Sus Scrofa.
"Le Mal Des Ardents" ("Holy Fire") is a concept album about fears, terrors, about the balance between folklore and reason, myth and common sense, light and darkness, past and present, modernity and archaism. The album marries minimalism, purity, a fine approach and ancient instruments: traditional music (hurdy gurdy, shawm, polyphonies, percussion, gongs); the gloom of oppressive dark ambient; the slow pace of ritual music, wavering between modernity and archaism. Voices rise towards beauty, lifting it away from some occult mud. Holy Fire takes us back to a forgotten world - a primal, ancient, wild and free world, pervaded by secret dances of sorcerers', unfathomable forests, remote and lifeless places. 6-panel digipak.
"This is the time when the Holy Fire went ablaze. Countless men and women saw their bodies being consumed by some invisible fire; moaning and wailings filled the earth." (Ademar de Chabannes)
During the 10th century, Ademar de Chabannes, a French monk, described some mysterious ailment which affected peasants in the Limousin region of France- causing spasms, convulsions, hallucinations and consuming the victims' bodies with some invisible fire. People suspected witchcraft, possession of the devil. But these illnesses were in fact due to poisoning through by a parasite in the rye grain... Fear and terror spread throughout the country. It coupled with many Medieval fears, including famine, war, violence, death, plague, leprosy...
Holy Fire stems from this deep history. The history of losing one's mind, which gives way to this nightmare that keeps growing, transforming, mutating: fear. It is the shadow which never leaves us alone. It is the restless beast which is never to be tamed. It is the mutating virus. It thrived on the fear of fire, deep forest, witches gatherings, folklore, and always fitted in with the times! A mad man, in his cell was scared of a woodlouse, while the cell keeper was scared of the mad man... who was the maddest of the two?
