all of France is doomed on March 8th, 2019: Ataraxie

Ah, the land of love. France. The land of delicious cheese, sweet pastries, and Paris the city of love. And don't you forget: liberté, égalité, fraternité.
Words that have inspired generations of happy, cheery and joyful French youth for centuries:
"La liberté consiste à pouvoir faire tout ce qui ne nuit pas à autrui : ainsi, l'exercice des droits naturels de chaque homme n'a de bornes que celles qui assurent aux autres membres de la société la jouissance de ces mêmes droits. Ces bornes ne peuvent être déterminées que par la loi."
YOU KNOW WHAT?! Forget all that!! Everybody is doomed on the 8th of March of 2019. The prince of misery doom and gloom hopelessness is about to wash up on the shore and it's not going to be a pretty sight for the president of France or for the fancy Parisians enjoying their caviar with their wine.
It is the total ugliness of funeral death doom and the big heap of toxic waste that it brings along with it.
All of France will be thanking Ataraxie for its happiness. Check out the sexy details through the official information below. Cheer up, it's only the end of the world. Have some pancakes and syrup while you wait.

It took six long years to ATARAXIE to deliver the follow-up to 2013's ultra massive "L'être et la nausée". Six long years spent reinventing themselves when guitarist Sylvain ESTEVE (one of the founding members) left, replacing him with two new guitar players Hugo GASPAR (FATUM ELISUM, MALEMORT...) and Julian PAYAN (SORDIDE, VOID PARADIGM...), re-arranging their whole back-catalogue for this uncommon new line-up with three guitarists, touring Europe and writing new material. But when it comes to one of the European leaders of the Extreme Doom scene, delivery definitely doesn't mean deliverance. At all.
"Résignés", the new album, is all but just "music", it's a painful experience to be suffered by all senses, by all organs, innards... It's not just like swarming in the sewers. It's drowning in an oil spill of cataclysmic proportions where deep growls sound like the last words expectorated through a last breath from oil-filled lungs and screams express the utter madness invading the mind of the soon-to-be-dead, you.
Mixed by Sylvain BIGUET (TREPALIUM, EIBON, DISOWNING...) and mastered by Collin JORDAN (VOIVOD, EYEHATEGOD, YOB...) again, "Résignés" deals with the global failure of a whole specie chewing the rotten remains of the planet that once fed it, vowing itself to its own demise, wallowing in pathetic beliefs in a hallucinated salvation.
A world made of the madness of the masses, the morbid Human curiosity, its voyeurism and hunger for blood and a whole part of the society, hopeless and resignated to commit suicide before having to face an even more painful end, taking turns between the executioner's hands, watching in delight the one before them dying while waiting for their own time to come. Here's what "Résignés" is all about: the resignation to death as the sole deliverance.
Prepare to meet thy Extreme Doom.
