New EP dormir en février is out now.
‘Le vide en personne’. That’s French and has a double meaning. It means both “Emptiness in person” as in a person that embodies emptiness, but also “The emptiness in nobody”, as in no one being affected by an event. Having said that, there’s nothing at all empty about the progressive metal crafted by the progressive metal of Swiss outfit erdem. It is a sound that encapsulates the emotional peaks and troughs of post-rock slammed up alongside the intensity of djent. Ostensibly, this is post-metal. But the metal here is a style inspired not by hardcore but a more technical and pulverising sound. Bravo, erdem. Check it out below.
