Archange - Flashback

The Petulant were formed to destroy the somewhat polished expression that seems to dominate the metal genre today. Metal started out as a musical rebellion, were ferocity, energy and all the horrors of the world were part of the sound. It is this fascination and approach to music that drives The Petulant to making and spreading their music. Musically it´s aggressive death thrash, with the sound from the early nineties in Europe and the USA. Main inspirations are from the Bay area, like Exodus and Testament, but also from death-and black metal like Death, Carcass and Marduk.

The band consists of both old and new blood from the Danish metal scene. They have been part of many different bands the likes of: Sacrificial and Iniquity through Thorium, Mordax and Crocell, and even the old English band Atomkraft (this is just a short excerpt of a long list). This diversity does shine through in the bands music, were both old and new ideas align to create a new expression.

Dictum was produced by the well known punk and hardcore producer Lasse Ballade in his dark dungeon; Ballade Studios in Copenhagen, were allso danish ORM and Slaegt did their recent albums. This was a very conscious choice in order to get some of the unbound savagery from punk music into the production of the songs. It´s supposed to sound like music played by people, without any kind of sequencer, triggers og beat detective.

The album contains of 10 ultra aggressive songs, were some of the brutallity that was known from early Sacrificial is audibly pressent. This is probably due to the fact that the Meier brothers, 2 of the members of the band, used to be main forces in that band. The songs on the record have lots of variety, from the fast opener Toying with the Infinite to the heavy and dragging My Ceasar.

Band members are:

Asbjørn Steffensen: Bass og vocals ( Crocell, ex Mordax, ex Descensus)
Kræn Meier: Guitar, backing vocals ( Atomkraft, Hells Domain, Thorium, ex Sacrificial, ex Iniquity)
Lukas Meier: Drums ( ex Sacrificial, ex Withering Surface)
Mads Christraper Gath: Guitar ( ex Mordax, ex Descensus)
