The French Carne are the emblem of essentiality that never goes to the detriment of the intensity of the music proposed. The two guys from Lyon propose a sludge noise post-hardcore in which there is a strong punk connotation: it’s no coincidence that most of the tracks are full of a fury that goes beyond any technical or stylistic consideration, while the hints of slowdowns more appropriate to doom are confined to two tracks (The End Of Us and Lord Less) in which the voice is entrusted to the talented Marion Leclercq. For the rest, are the vibrant screams of Pierre Bozonet to symbolize an expressive urgency able to make a difference against many proposals, especially those in which the instrumental noise is intended only to cover an inspiration gap. If for my nature I consider the most reflective songs the peaks of Modern Rituals (in addition to the two mentioned, also Cloak) I can’t help but enjoy the rough and direct approach of the rest of the work, with the conviction that the two, especially live, are able to extract from themselves any remaining drop of energy to pour on the public. And the secret of Carne, in the end, lies in the ability to exhibit a style that, despite appearing more direct than ever and without mediations, actually knows how to dig deep to make a breach in a definitive way in those who have the patience and the desire to be crossed by the notes thrown as poison darts by Pierre Bozonet (vocals and guitar) and Thibaut Claisse (drums). As it happens more and more often, the album is published by a pool of transnational labels, which also include our Shove Records and Drown Within, with the latter constantly on track when it comes to spread disturbing sounds that sail between sludge, post metal, noise and doom.
