Wow!! No reviews or rates to this album yet, what you've been missing, people!!

"Cellule de crise" is a short time record that could even pass as an EP with its scarce 28 minutes but believe me when I say it's worth to listen to it.

The MAGMA influence is undeniable; it's amazing how many bands (especially in France) have preserved the original Zeuhl style in their recordings and this unknown band is one of them. The hypnotic bass lines, jazzy drums, female chorus, incessant piano and sensual violins don't stop in these violent but yet beautiful short songs.

What I like the most about "Cellule de crise" is that the lyrics are in French and not in Kobaian, it's not that I don't like Kobaian lyrics but at least with French I can use a translator to understand them.

This is one of those lost in times gems that couldn't earn big popularity not even in a very little popular musical genre such as Progressive Rock, but really, if you enjoy old school Zeuhl as MAGMA, WEIDORJE, ESKATON, DÜN or EIDER STELLAIRE you're going to love this album.
