Born from the ashes of technical death metal act Paralytic (who have performed at Wacken Open Air‘s Metal Battle final), Au-Dessus comes to life with a totally new goal and direction. The Lithuanians – Mantas, Simonas, Jokūbas and Džiugas – perform “post-black metal” with the aim to “destroy social attitudes, to cause the state of discomfort, to encourage cognitive dissonance and self-destruction”. Two songs are available for streaming below. The band aims to release an album and is negotiating with record labels.
The band describes their sound: “The sound composition is being developed in order to destroy social attitudes, to cause the state of discomfort, to encourage cognitive dissonance and self-destruction. In the morale of painful cracks we are made to destroy and in this way to create; we are drawing our coat of arms on the screens of social cliches and looking beyond the self- imposed boundaries, drowned in cynicism because of god-fearing desire to come into contact with decency. This is our Renaissance and illuminance – your judgement.
Sue and be judged…“
