Hey guys, just dicussing this album/artist with Nogbad, Sagichim and Mellotron Storm in the last few hours, and I don't think they've been proposed for the site.

UNIT WAIL

Album: Pangaea Proxima

Here's the description of it from the Wayside Music website:

"Unit Wail is the long awaited return to music of Franck Fromy, who was the founder and leader of the rightly legendary dark French zeuhl band Shub Niggurath. The sound here is heavy and dark, but also modern; the sound is closer to modern, 00s heavy Zeuhl bands like Combat Astronomy and Ga'an. The line-up is Vincent Sicot-Vantalon (keysboards & all compositions), Philippe Haxaire (drums), Adrian Luna (bass), Emmanuel Pothier (synths) & Franck Fromy (guitar). Bassist James Hugget from Combat Astronomy even makes a guest appearance on one track.

Propelled by a heavy rocking band, the music explores dark Crimsonian horizons, illuminated by Franck’s stellar guitar. Unit Wail proposes us here some kind of dark Zeuhl post-rock, exploring little frequented side-paths."



To be honest, there's different stuff on the album that sounds more Zeuhl-like, but overall it's rather bent, eerie and uneasy music. Bit of a mix of Crimson, Present, etc.

Sorry if this artist/album has already been proposed!

I REALLY wish there was more than one Youtube clip available, I can't believe there's not more. I'll keep searching and see what I can find.

I thought they were on the site already. haha
 
They definitely belong. I'd say avant over Zeuhl...but either would work.

Yep, Zeuhl is probably a bit of a stretch, hence my `?' in the original title!

I thought it best to propose them and leave it up to the experts to decide where they fit best under!

Sorry, that's my bad, I was meant to try and upload some songs from the CD to Sendspace for you! I've got this weekend off (finally!) so I'll dig it out and try to do it then!

Forgive me guys!

Just listened. Thanks for the bump, I'd missed it before.

This definitely belongs on the site, in my own personal opinion (based on this one song, at least).  Looking forward to hearing more songs before we decide where it should go.  Unless you're playing a trick on us and the rest of the album is all alt-country, I think we have a winner here.

It's a great album, not sure if it's Zeuhl or Avant, but I love it.

Damo, I sent Steve on the ZAR team a link to the Sendspace files, I think he was going to pass them onto the team members? Hope this helps!

Excellent! I hope you liked the tracks, Damo, it's a bit of a noisy bugger of an album, eh?!
