Released just in time for a 10 days Russian winter tour, Nagykanizsa is a new collection of songs by French post hardcore group Aussitôt Mort. Just like the name of their first full lenght « Montuenga » (Level-Plane & Pure Pain Sugar – 2008), the name of this new record is a place the band had to cross during one of its numerous travels. Rather than releasing a second full lenght, Aussitôt Mort decided to share these new songs with friends : they are or will be released on various vinyl formats shared with japaneses Heaven In Her Arms, americans Catalyst, or on german label Adagio. Nagykanizsa is your unique chance to listen to all the songs from the 2011 recording session at studio de la souleuvre, mixed and mastered by Guillaume Doussaud of Swan Sound Studio (Taint, Karysun, Amanda Woodward…), with Marc Euvrie (Sugartown Cabaret, Karysun, The Eye Of Time) on bass duties. This session shows a new face of Aussitôt Mort, with darker and longer songs (5 songs in 35 min). Just like the life of the band that has done many tours in France, Europe, Uk, Japan and now Russia, this new CD is a long and epic journey. You’ll recognize the band writing style mainly consisting of melodic guitars riffs full of effects supported by complex hammered drum riffs; but you will also enjoy the progression that the band is taking on this new recording. Every riffs, every parts of each songs last long enought to let all details, rythms and melodies be developped. These longer songs give the listener some time to dream of far landscapes, and to imagine all moments lived by the band of travellers that is Aussitôt Mort.
