LES CHANTS DU HASARD – debut album vinyl LP in the works.

NO GUITAR. NO BASS. NO DRUMS. ORCHESTRA IS THE NEW BLACK.
In close cooperation with the visionary italian label I, Voidhanger, Throne presents the vinyl version of an album half a century ahead of our time!

LES CHANTS DU HASARD is the project of sole member Hazard (all instruments and vocals). This eponymous album is an experimental work featuring a mix of classical music and black metal without any guitar, bass or drums, only orchestral instruments.

Musically speaking, the album is influenced by orchestral works and operas from composers like Mussorgsky, Prokofiev and Strauss,” Hazard explains. “I thought a lot about how to articulate it with black metal; especially the vocals, which I wanted in the vein of Ulver, Emperor and Ved Buens Ende. Lyrics are written in the form of Les Chants de Maldoror from Comte de Lautréamont, a French author from the 19th century.

With a wonderful and fitting cover painting by Jeff Grimal, LES CHANTS DU HASARD’s debut will be out around July / August on vinyl format through Throne Records.
