Immersive, emotional, and crushing are the fitting adjectives to describe the new Plebeian Grandstand long player Rien ne suffit. Today, Debemur Morti Productions unveil the full stream of the French extreme Metal band’s fourth album.
The new album constitutes a conceptual unit, a work of art in which all elements and individual songs belong together. Rien ne suffit must be understood as an aural movie, and it was composed like a screenplay. The band elaborates about the concept behind their latest album:
“Rien ne suffit means “nothing is enough”. The plot is about the consequence of human nature on the cyclicity of evolution and the impossibility of real progress in certain domains. Wanting to evolve, to do better, thinking we do for a while, ending up realizing you are almost back at the starting point, ready for another cycle of ‘trying’. This can describe both an episode of life for one person and for a society on a greater scale. Each song on the album has its own flavour and can be appreciated separately as an individual piece of music. However, even a ‘casual’ movie enthusiast is used to focus on the whole movie, to try to understand what is happening, to feel empathy, and to not skipping scenes, why should that not work for an album?”
