London-based French expatriates Le Pécheur recently announced a European tour to coincide with the release of their debut LP on drummer Xavier Terracol's Azbin Records. Medieval Dreams houses material from 2010, including unreleased tracks and cuts from their self-produced, digital release, Demon1.
On "Don’t Burn The Witch" vocalist/guiatrist Pier forewarns the wrath of a scornful woman. The doomsday feeling is enhanced by conga-driven percussion, Spanish-influenced guitar, and French-accented vocals in the style of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins. With “Holy Mountain,” a video for which you can peep below, crawling percussion sets the stage for distortion-heavy guitars to lead a path through an expanse of spectral synth. --Mark Craig, Altered Zones
