about

«La décadence est le contraire de l'époque de grandeur : c'est la retransformation des mythes en concepts.» E.M.C — De la France

«L'idée de progrès fait de nous tous des fats sur les sommets du temps ; mais ces sommets n'existent point : le troglodyte qui tremblait d'effroi dans les cavernes, tremble encore dans les gratte-ciel.» E.M.C — Précis de Décomposition

Today, the world is perhaps experiencing its greatest decline.
Nauseous policies, fateful pandemics, ecological disaster, under the yoke of a terrorist and tyrannical economy and growth.
Perhaps, it would be time for everyone to immediately abandon any concrete pyramid piling up, any human superposition, any acceleration towards a utopia that always turns out to be false and negative.
Perhaps, it is time to reject everything that was before the fire, to reject all comforts, to reject all modernity.
Perhaps it is time to fully accept that we are and will forever remain antonyms.
Through this album, Xomo (to pronounce Chomo — /ʃ/o/m/o) brings us here a compact, unbelievable and uncompromising album, around the themes of the myth of the eternal return and the nostalgia for origins.
Noise improvisations, studies of ancient and animal rhythms, wall of creaking and crashing of rocks on the walls,all the conditions are met to embody a cavernous and metaphysical demonstration in antonym of our world of sanitized, sleek and impermeable architectures..
The "Harfangs", owls of the Far North, originally living in the Pyrenees Mountains during the last Glaciation, and some of whose paintings were found in caves in the South of France, reincarnate above our future ruin, from vestige to vertigo.
Please welcome, a unique experience, vision and philosophy about post-industrial and antimodernism.

«On ressort de Harfangs secoué, forcément. Les petits malins demanderont si leurs enceintes déconnent, comme il se doit avec tout œuvre noise. Pourtant, il faut bien admettre que, grâce à sa durée, ses rythmes répétitifs et un sound-design évocateur, insufflant une réelle angoisse à certains passages, Harfangs finit par nous hypnotiser et nous faire voyager très loin, vers un univers certes très sombre mais sans fioriture, sans triche et qui résonne au plus profond de nous de manière authentique.»

Verdammnis / Pierre Sopor — www.verdammnis.com/reviews/xomo-harfangs

«La retenue n’est pas de mise, laissant la place à un maximalisme dénudé et rongé jusqu’à l’os, équilibre précaire entre modernité mécanique et tribalité rugueuse, poésie anxiogène lavée à l’acide immergeant ses strophes dans un bain de boue au pouvoir terrifiant. Redoutable.»

Silence And Sound / Roland Torres — silenceandsound.me/2021/01/21/xomo/

about

Cioran Records France

We condemn.
We declaim the trial.
Neither fatalism nor free will.
We are the plants that appear to their own demise.
The root is damaged, soon the branches will follow.
Our souls are pure, but become corrupted in their corrupt bodies.
Our days devour us.
The muse gives off its best scent when broken.
We believe that the tree's worst enemy is the seed that comes out of its kidneys.
