Shelsmusic - the label that brought you genre breaking debut albums by the likes of Black Sheep Wall, Sons of Noel And Adrian, Latitudes, Admiral Angry, Mahumodo, *shels and many more is extremely excited to announce the release of Erlen Meyer’s debut self-titled album on 20th May.
Based in Limoges, France, Erlen Meyer create dark and ferocious musical landscapes, with vicious, throat-shredding vocals erupting over raging guitars - snarling with every discordant twist and turn – reminiscent of Will Haven’s legendary “El Diablo” or Vision of Disorder’s “Imprint”.
Produced by Cult of Luna’s Magnus Lindberg in Stockholm, Sweden – it was only days before recording that the group was devastated with the untimely death of their drummer, Romain Djoudi, due to a tragic motorcycle accident. Erlen Meyer’s resulting savage debut encapsulates the events both in the music and album artwork - the raw and sobering emotion is unlike anything we have encountered, and together with the masterful production, Erlen Meyer’s debut has the potential to be one of the year’s most important heavy releases.
Ahead of the album release, the band have made the track “Nuit” available to stream as a preview – which you can check out here.
Erlen Meyer’s debut self-titled album is set for worldwide release through Shelsmusic on 20th May, 2013. The group have started booking UK / French dates in March with fellow label-mates Latitudes and Manatees.
