Swiss post-hardcore/heavy-post-rock collective DARIUS premiered new music video “Leap Of Faith” // New album ‘Voir’ coming out on April 17th on CD/LP/Digital through Hummus Records

About two years after the officiel release of their EP ‘Clôture’ (2018, Cold Smoke Records), Swiss post-hardcore/heavy-post-rock/metal quintet Darius just premiered a first excerpt from its upcoming effort with the music video of “Leap Of Faith” available right now on YouTube.

This track will feature on their new full-lengh album called ‘Voir’ recorded by Amaury Sauvé (Birds In Row) @ The Apiary Studio (France) and coming out on April 17, on CD, LP & Digital through Hummus Records (COILGUNS, Emilie Zoé, Rorcal…) & Digital on all legal platforms (Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music, Amazon…).

In addition to this video news, pre-orders are opened now on the Hummus Records webstore.

For fans of Bossk, ENVY, Russian Circles…

Following the releases of «Grain» and «Clôture», Darius‘ third opus «Voir» lives up to their reputation. After heading to Laval(FR) to meet with young producer Amaury Sauvé (Birds in Row), the five Fribourgers came back with a massive record whoseoverview is worthy of a CinemaScope western. Their twenty-two guitar strings compose a surprising orchestral landscape thatmasterfully oscillates between abstract noise rock and instrumental post-rock. Their playing has refined although it hasn’tsoothed; Darius’ formula stays the same. Being poles apart from effects, manners and make-up, these five lads play for thesake of passion, honor and camaraderie. A beautiful live band to be taken in the face, with open arms, calm breath and abattling heart. [L. Jucker // Hummus Records]

Three guitars – what do they use them for ? Crushing sonic waves of instrumental grandeur. Darius manage orchestral songswithout pompousness. Raw riffs. Simple and repetitive chords you wanna play with too much excitation. Riffs that hurt your wristand cover your guitar with blood. Riffs that once layered form an atypical, choral and fairly violent heavy instrumental rock. Likea big cake, made of real and healthy ingredients, nutritive, fat as fuck and surprisingly digest. They shared the stage with bands like Meshuggah, Deftones, Wang Wen, Toundra, Long Distance Calling, Jambinai and…Henri Dès at festivals like Rock Oz’Arènes, Rock Altitude, Hummus Fest, etc. This led them to record GRAIN (HummusRecords, 2015), CLÔTURE (Cold Smoke Records & Czar of Revelations, 2018) and their very new album VOIR (HummusRecords, 2020) produced by Amaury Sauvé (Birds in Row, Death Engine, The Prestige). They’re obviously a live and down-to-earth band. No wonder then if they sound on record like they are in real-life: warm and frank, loud and fun.
