LES CHANTS DU HASARD - New Album Out In April, Reveals First Album Teaser

French orchestral blackened metal act Les Chants du Hasard, a project of Hazard, will release a new album titled Livre Troisième on 9th April and has now released the first official album teaser. Les Chants du Hasard is a project born with the idea that metal is a musical style that deals with extreme emotions, anger, violence, darkness, despair and whose goal is to create an aural experience of those emotions, something more than just music, that would drown the listener.

Hazard comments: "I wondered what would be the best way to create such music and the answer I found is that one needs the most expressive musical means. Now, what is the musical vessel with the most possibilities, the most nuanced and that has been refined for centuries by very talented people? Orchestra."

The debut, Livre Premier, was released in 2017, was the materialization of that idea. Livre Second, released in 2019, dug further, it was definitely more focused and confident than its predecessor, getting closer to what Hazard wanted to achieve: orchestral music as dark and violent as metal. The production is clearer, deeper and stronger; the arrangements, richer; the atmospheres are more majestic than before.

In Livre Troisième, he strayed away from this idea. The voices are more diverse, with soprano, tenor, children voices, spoken words as well as "metal" voices. The music is also more diversified, not only oriented towards violence, with different moods and the album should be taken as a whole rather than as a collection of songs. Is this still metal? This question is now irrelevant, Les Chants du Hasard has its own style, call it how you like. Link
