Le Grand Sbam biography
Le Grand Sbam are part of the musical collective based around Lyon France, that includes the likes of PoiL, ni, & Chromb, and whose albums are released through the excellent Dur et Doux label. The band consists of the three members of PoiL, Antoine Arnera (keyboards), Boris Cassone (bass), & Guilhem Meier (drums), along with Mélissa Acchiardi (vibraphone), and vocalist Jessica Martin Maresco & Marie Nachury. The compositions are written by Antoine & Guilhem. The band is as much performance art as music, they bring a Magma vocal sensibility to the manic nature of PoiL's musical gymnastics. There's a Cardiacs feel to the resultant music. Their debut album, Vaisseau Monde was released in 2019 with a live EP released in 2014.

4 stars Another grand slam (aka grand sbam) of the year 2019, and at the same time one of fantastic, fanatical debut opuses in avantgarde- progressive scene. Le GRAND SBAM's debut album "Vaisseau Monde", much-awaited by every avantgarde-progressive rock fan, has been launched in the last month of 2019, and surprisingly appreciated for only a month. No more expression needed because lots of Lyon-oriented avantgarde warriors like ni., PoiL, Chromb!, and so on. And of course, massive energetic, powerful sound connotation you can hear all through this creation.

Plenty of sound approaches and technical appearances come up to your ears. The first shot "Dins O Sbam" is a killer. Sarcastic, deeply heavy, incredibly complicated melodic / rhythmic movements with female voice / shout madness should absorb your brain and inner mind without breath. Oh God. Not only guitar heaviness nor dissected percussion / drumming salad, but also Japanese shakuhachi (amazing) or quirky synthesizer dances will invade deeply in. Quite enjoyable is a chase of female voices and heavy fuzzy guitar sounds in "Kouia" ... in such a melodic confusion, you would find something methodical and methodological. Weird really.

And imho my favourite is the fourth turf "Woubit" featuring hippy spacey ghostly Kraut-y psychedelia. Reminds me like Fille Qui Mousse meet Mahogany Brain. Always feel I would drive myself deeply beneath the sea of the track. In the last one "Vishnu Foutr'line" addictive combination of beautiful lines and adherent complexity can be received here and there. But hey as their sound compilation this track can be felt, methinks.

In conclusion, cannot call this creation as diverse nor colourful easily but for every avant-prog or Zeuhl fan this opus should be of much pleasure. And let me say thanks to Dur et Doux for recommending such a fine production.

Thanks to nogbad_the_bad for the artist addition.
