BLISS OF FLESH announce new album 'Tyrant'
Formed in 1999 in Calais - France, BLISS OF FLESH have always been a very charismatic band. Their obscure brand of non typical, lyrically and musically thoughtful, obscure black/ death metal has aroused genuine passion in many European lands drawing them an ever growing amount of followers. The band has also been building up a scorching reputation for their incendiary live shows. BLISS OF FLESH developed a conceptual trilogy of three albums inspired by Dante’s Trilogy: Divine Comedy. Their previous album ‘Empyrean’ released in 2017 on Listenable concluded such trilogy.
2020 sees the release of their brand new album ‘Tyrant’ and is this time based on the concept of ‘Le Discours de la Servitude Volontaire‘ ( Voluntary Servitude Thesis) written by French philosopher Etienne de la Boétie. Published fully in 1576, it deals with the idea that although servitude may appear to be forced, and that obedience is imposed to the people, appearances are misleading and such servitude is in fact entirely voluntary.
