Enter the spine-tingling musical world of Les Chants du Hasard, a world of imagination and extreme emotion that may never have existed at all except in dreams — submersive and astonishing dreams that are both seductive and shuddering, haunting and breathtaking, daunting and fierce, and much more.
LES CHANTS DU HASARD is the project of Hazard. It was born with the idea that Metal is a musical style that deals with extreme emotions, anger, violence, darkness and despair and whose goal is to create an aural experience of those emotions, something more than just music, that would drown the listener.
Mainman Hazard wondered what would be the best way to create such music and the answer he found is that one needs the most expressive musical means. Now, what is the musical vessel with the most possibilities, the most nuances and that has been refined for centuries by very talented people? “Orchestra Livre Premier”, released in 2017, was the materialization of that idea. “Livre Second”, released in 2019, digged further and it was definitely more focused and confident than its predecessor, getting closer to what he wanted to achieve: orchestral music as dark and violent as Metal. The production was clearer, deeper and stronger; the arrangements, richer; the atmospheres were more majestic than before.
In “Livre troisième”, he strayed away from this idea. The voices are more diverse, with Soprano, Tenor, children voices, spoken words as well as “Metal” voices. The music is also more diversified, not only oriented towards violence, with different moods and the album should be taken as a whole rather than as a collection of songs. Is ist still Metal? This question is now irrelevant, LES CHANTS DU HASARD has its own style, call it how you like.
