Sonny92 The album deals with the human race's suicidal need to be the instrument of it's own destruction through unmitigated consumption of the planet's resources and pathological voyeurism. These themes are very much suited to the morbid and sorrowful atmosphere created by these french alchemists, the towering walls of sound washing everything away to leave the listener overwhelmed, exhausted and resigned to their fate, like those on the album's cover queueing passively for their own execution.

It took six long years to ATARAXIE to deliver the follow-up to 2013’s ultra massive “L’être et la nausée“. Six long years spent reinventing themselves when guitarist Sylvain ESTEVE (one of the founding members) left, replacing him with two new guitar players Hugo GASPAR (FATUM ELISUM, MALEMORT…) and Julian PAYAN (SORDIDE, VOID PARADIGM…), re-arranging their whole back-catalogue for this uncommon new line-up with three guitarists, touring Europe and writing new material. But when it comes to one of the European leaders of the Extreme Doom scene, delivery definitely doesn’t mean deliverance. At all.

“Résignés“, the new album, is all but just “music”, it’s a painful experience to be suffered by all senses, by all organs, innards… It’s not just like swarming in the sewers. It’s drowning in an oil spill of cataclysmic proportions where deep growls sound like the last words expectorated through a last breath from oil-filled lungs and screams express the utter madness invading the mind of the soon-to-be-dead, you.

Mixed by Sylvain BIGUET (TREPALIUM, EIBON, DISOWNING…) and mastered by Collin JORDAN (VOIVOD, EYEHATEGOD, YOB…) again, “Résignés” deals with the global failure of a whole specie chewing the rotten remains of the planet that once fed it, vowing itself to its own demise, wallowing in pathetic beliefs in a hallucinated salvation.

A world made of the madness of the masses, the morbid Human curiosity, its voyeurism and hunger for blood and a whole part of the society, hopeless and resignated to commit suicide before having to face an even more painful end, taking turns between the executioner’s hands, watching in delight the one before them dying while waiting for their own time to come. Here’s what “Résignés” is all about: the resignation to death as the sole deliverance.

Prepare to meet thy Extreme Doom.
