Trepanation Recordings are delighted to announce that we will be releasing not one but two stunning releases from IDIOTEQ featured NON SERVIAM on 1st May 2021. Non Serviam are an anonymous extreme music collective from Paris (Fr) that fuses elements of Industrial/Experimental/Black metal/Grindcore/Trip Hop/Baroque/Electro/Doom/Crust to release vengeance and freedom on the world.
‘Work’ and ‘Live Improvisations – Vol. 1’ follow hot on the heels of ‘Le Cœur Bat’, released on 23rd April via Code666 / Aural Music on vinyl and CD and cassette on Trepanation Recordings. On this album, Non Serviam creates a sonic collage of experimental, black, doom, grindcore, crust and industrial metal while staying within the framework of a baroque influence that will assault the auditory senses.
‘Work’ comprises 12 tracks, composed as a concept album about the question of work, taking its influence heavily by experimental electronic music, industrial, drum ‘n’ bass and trip hop. Speaking about this release, Non Serviam state: ‘We do not want to improve working conditions, but to destroy work and the world that produces its necessity. ‘Work’ contains three songs composed and played like a band (as is most of ‘Le Cœur Bat’) but a majority are dirty electronic tracks and noisy sound experiments, sonically between the trip-hop of Portishead, the breakbeats of Venetian Snares or Aphex Twin and harsh electronics, with many samples that puts it into a grim reality, it also has an evil and mystical vibe throughout.’
‘Live Improvisations – Vol. 1’ has more in common with Non Serviam’s usual output and comprises 2 tracks both with a unique atmosphere. Track one is instrumental with many solos and breaks, track two is sad and heavy and has vocals reading an old poem called « Ce qui dure ».
Both albums form a thoroughly engrossing listening experience in different ways, showing how masterfully Non Serviam can bend conventions and blur boundaries between genres.
