MÜTTERLEIN‘s second album will be officially released on December 30rd (December 31st on streaming platforms). “Bring Down The Flags” presents six sinister and tension-filled compositions which vividly highlight the broad range of influences that inspired artist Marion Leclercq. This time focussing especially on the electronic and noisy textures, MÜTTERLEIN‘s newest album expresses a peculiar and solitary grief.
In collaboration with German magazine Sonic Seducer, Debemur Morti Productions proudly present the full album stream. See the label’s YouTube channel below:
Marion Leclercq discloses about her latest work of Art:
“It is personal, because I am just trying to reveal my truth and to formulate it for myself. It is absurd, because life is absurd and MÜTTERLEIN is a Sisyphus effort to find meaning in something. It’s imperfect because it is deeply human.“
MÜTTERLEIN is the solo project of Marion Leclercq (ex-OVERMARS), composer, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist.
Adopted in 2014, this pseudonym is a nod to the nightmarish yet fragile work of NICO, who in many ways deconstructed the unbearable myth of ‘femininity’ imposed on us. Musically, MÜTTERLEIN mixes Post-Punk savagery, Doom, Noise, Industrial and Black Metal to create a vast universe of Post-Metal experimentation.
First album, “Orphans Of The Black Sun” – released in 2016 on Sundust Records, a label co-run by Vindsval from BLUT AUS NORD – leaned towards the Post-Punk and Doom registers using minimalist, cold instrumentation to create a record organic and ritualistic as a witch-dance around a fire.
In 2020, MÜTTERLEIN responded to an invitation by the artist LIMBES (ex-BLURR THROWER) to create a mirror piece to his epic 25 minute track entitled “Vérité” (French for Truth) for a split release issued in 2021 by LADLO. The free format allowed MÜTTERLEIN to experiment even further, constructing a slow, desolate dreamscape of doom-laden Dark Ambient.
“Bring Down The Flags“, MÜTTERLEIN‘s second album, will be released in late 2021 by Debemur Morti Productions. Dark, haunting and immediate, the album incorporates more electronic sounds and blackened Industrial atmospheres to serve a more direct subject and voice.
