What happens when a group of musicians get together and begin a project that sees them mix metal, jazz and Gregorian chants. The result is French outfit CKRAFT who are about to wow the world with their debut album Epic Discordant Vision on June 3rd.
CKRAFT’s debut album is a Jazz and Metal instrumental fusion, bonded together by the immortal melodies of the Gregorian chants. The record follows a blueprint made of heavy, crushing metal riffs, howling solos by Metal-influenced Jazz musicians, and ancient melodies crossing the centuries from Middle Ages to Metal Ages. The expectation is that “Epic Discordant Vision” will find its audience with Djent, Death/Technical/Progressive Metal fans, and also with modern Jazz aficionados that are touched by the unrestricted freedom and genuine expressivity of this music, and therefore, contribute to break the boundaries between music genres a bit more.
This week Dave Griffiths sat down and spoke to the band. You can hear the interview right here:
