meta meat presents its second musical work: INFRASUPRA
the theme of this album is the equilibrium between our aspirations to reach a new 'suprahuman' omniscient condition and our inner 'infrahuman' material essence. how do modern 'civilised' technological humans (supra) still do cohabit with their animalistic truth (infra)? our desire for carnal flesh versus our quest to become a more 'godlike' creator are challenging our physical / metaphysical co-existence in this more and more virtual world. this work also pays tribute to those we used to refer as 'primitive' and now were renamed out of guilt: 'first people'. we wish to invoke the forgotten pulses and spirits of the 'lost tribes' - those primary nations which we wiped out or colonised, some still in resistance - as inspirations for our future.
the music of INFRASUPRA explores its dichotomous theme by proposing a mix of crude acoustic instruments with raw samples and sophisticated electronic sounds. self-invented rhythms are played with various percussions (daf, bendhir, hand drums, toms, etc...) then combined with various digital elements. somekilos and phil von succeeded in creating 10 neo-archaic / electro-ethnic ritual mini stories, offering with this masterful second album a unique and original musical endeavour.

REFLECTIONS OF DARKNESS
"... The new release ‘Infrasupra’ only confirms their status of masters in building a unique sonic vibe and atmosphere. Exquisite tribal and ethnic tints to their music make it as mysterious as dynamic. A fine balance of juxtaposing elements, truly addictive rhythm and catchy flow make the album a fantastic treat for those who bend towards a more experimental side..." "...Of course, one cannot deny the perfection of the very thing, both in its structuring and performance. However, I guess ‘Infrasupra’ forte lies not that much in the care the artists paid to the making of every song, but rather in the gorgeous effect it has upon the listener: it offers the feeling of an escape, of free-running thoughts, of untamed imagination, open spaces, wild element and genuine fire found within oneself. If you yearn for the most unique, uncontrollable beat in a fine company of vocalic experiments and overall atmosphere of wild sonic poetry turned into tribal melodic feast - Meta Meat ‘Infrasupra’ is your thing."

THE CLOUDBUSTER
"... an absolutely stunning, new album by Meta Meat. "Infrasupra" is a hypnotizing, excellent piece of work..." "...Pulsating and vibrating beat tempo set in a beautifully intervoven sonic matter makes the album a real gem...."

I DIE: YOU DIE
"... New record Infrasupra itself is a simultaneously tasteful and disquieting listen which shifts from complex polyrhythms to heavy buzzing drones, yet retains a distinctly continental sense of polish and restraint..."

PRÉMONITION
"... Somekilos (2kilos &More) et Phil Von (Von Magnet) sortent aujourd'hui le second album de leur projet commun Meta Meat, projet que nous adorons à Prémonition. Ce second disque, que nous avons pu écouter avec un peu d'avance, est tout simplement époustouflant !..."

OBSKÜRE
"...Combien d'heures de travail, de programmation, d'improvisation puis de sélection pour aboutir à une structure fixée une fois pour toutes ? Eux ne comptent jamais. Les instrumentations se croisent, jouent avec les vocaux, imposant un hors-lieu et un hors-temps..." "...Rien n'est figé, tout se transforme en direct, se nourrit d'une idée, bascule sens dessus dessous, unissant intimité et extériorité..."

VERDAMMNIS
"...Meta Meat met toujours l'accent sur les percussions, dont les pulsations nous guident au sein d'un univers organique aux contours quasi mystiques..." "...Pas besoin d'être intelligibles, les mots chantés, scandés, psalmodiés sont l'âme de ce corps en mouvement alors que les percussions en sont à la fois l'ossature et le cœur battant..." "...L'ensemble respire de vie grâce à son sound-design ciselé avec soin et ses textures organiques et promet d'acquérir une dimension fascinante en live, où la théâtralité de chaque percussion est décuplée par les postures, les lumières, la puissance du son. Vivement !"

SILENCE AND SOUND
"...Meta Meat invoque des puissances telluriques oubliées du commun des mortels, forces cachées dans les entrailles d’une mère Nature prête à nous prendre dans ses bras pour nous inonder d’ondes régénérantes. Vital."

KÉROZÈNE Radio-show
"... il y a une histoire, une fresque sonore au sein de laquelle on se retrouve embarqué. L’album est vraiment une totale réussite..."

ELECTRAUMATISME Radio-show
"... la musique est une parfaite hybridation entre l'organique et l'électronique, c'est à la fois froid et chaleureux, à la fois simple et complexe, c'est une musique de contraires et passionnante à écouter..."

SOLÉNOPOLE Radio-show
"... Ce disque de Meta Meat publié par ant-zen et Le Label Beige s'impose comme la bande-son nomade du moment !
Un must en la matière balayant les champs électroacoustiques, ethno-ambient et techno-hybrides !..."
