Tense guitars, a set extremely compact, massive riffs, haunting noise-rock & shouted vocals that lead directly to the guts. Sharp & angry but without neglecting the atmosphere, "Bad books and empty pasts" is demanding but also takes the time to patiently build musical structures conducive to the development of oppressive & tortured atmospheres. (Denovali)

The base of their approach should definitely appeal to fans of this niche of the French scene, what with its pulsing rhythms and dark, grating textures and scathing vocals. The direction in which they're heading is also incredibly distinct, and really sets them apart from other (often more standard) acts that explore these realms of 'extreme music'. The vocals are also pretty colorful, often employing strange techniques that combine singing, speaking, and sneering - which really adds to the overall atmosphere of the material and fits in well within the spaciousness of the music. The mix keeps one guitar on the left and the other on the right, thus allowing plenty of focus to fall towards the rhythm section. This also highlights the fact that the two guitars are near never doubling one another (or the bass), so there's always something unique happening on all sides and layering together into the whole.
