death & the maiden
experimental metal

program notes by brice catherin:

death & the maiden was an ephemeral experimental metal project by frédéric danel (voice) and brice catherin (e-cello). we invited the amazing stéphane galland (drums) to join. our concept was pretty straight-forward: we tried to understand what the essence of metal consisted of. we then focused strictly on this essential material and developed it into this single track (from a live performance in geneva). we now have the pleasure to share with you seven years later.

i remember shortly after this aforementioned performance, we had a second (and last) concert in a metal festival. obviously this was not what the hardcore metal audience was expecting, but still, a bunch of metal fans literally kneeled in front of frédéric at the end of the gig. that was moving.
