meta meat is the collaborative project of two electronic musicians and composers: somekilos (half of 2kilos &More) and phil von (co-leader of von magnet) who share a deep passion for percussion and rhythms. the name meta meat associates the source of flesh (meat) with its passage beyond (meta). a very physical live act bound to propel our bodies and souls into another state, a state of release and trance, incarnating a wish to elevate our animalistic simplicity towards a higher conscience of being.

the duo's joined skills and energies combine real drumming & beats (somekilos) with real stamping & banging (phil von) as a solid foundation for a vibrant 'duel' battling against twisted virtual synths, samples and machines. as the electronic sounds are treated as radically as the acoustic percussion, the finished music of meta meat turns out sounding utterly 'tribal' - cruel, merciless, sad, pandemic but harshly accurate. two antagonistic cultures scrape and collide against each other, occidental versus oriental, modern versus archaic… and even an eastern asian third element is added to the balance to stir an even more complex and brutal electro-ethnic blend. what if this album was a weapon, the perfect soundtrack for our actual world wars? how can we envisiage a better world? let us first try to transcend its poignancy.

enhanced by the magnificent production and mixing of def, this debut album is a samurai pact, a commitment to raw musical integrity and an oath to elegant barbaric sonic power.

Reviews-chroniques-Rezensionen-отзывы-recensione

"... Metameat is certainly hard to define. Its ritualistic tribal beats, dark ambient atmospheres, and trance inducing melodies make the perfect soundtrack for a reflective, spiritual, and meditative journey. The percussion passionate pair that is Meta Meat succeeds in creating a rhythm focused album that is quite unlike any other." (Re>Gen Magazine - USA)
regenmag.com/reviews/meta-meat-metameat/

"...Light versus dark, warm versus cold, unleashed raw energy versus ritual peace. This is an intense album in all perspectives." (Altvenger Magazine - NL)
www.altvenger.com/meta-meat-metameat-album-review/

"...META MEAT's self-titled debut is the type of album that can be sought for comfort, for battle ready demonstrations, as well as spiritual reflection. The fusion of man made drumming and electronic foreplay is astounding. Cheers to this duo for putting out one hell of an album." (Brutal Resonance – US)
www.brutalresonance.com/review/meta-meat

"...It’s something “new”, a sort of experiment. Meta Meat remind us that everything started with rhythm, and that rhythmic noise fans should search the nature of rhythm very far in space and time. An engaging album, worthy of your attention." (Flux - IT)
fluxproject.altervista.org/en/meta-meat-metameat/

"... What we find here is an unusual and very appealing mix of analog percussion, instruments and rhythms made using the body (folding, stamping, impact on the body etc) and harsh industrial sounds created on synthesizers. Horn instruments and some other instruments traditionally used in folk and world music from different parts of the world are also included." (Elektroskull - SW)
www.elektroskull.com/2016/12/meta-meat-metameat/

"New amazing project : Exquisite Electro-Tribal & Ritual muzak for a complex Industrial-Electro-Ethnic blend." (Dark Divine – FR)
sites.google.com/site/ddmagtest/home

"...deux univers expérimentaux entrent en collision pour former une nouvelle forme d’expérimentation, un projet instinctif et viscéral". (Longueur d'Ondes n°80 - FR)
www.longueurdondes.com/2017/03/27/meta-meat/

"... Dans ce disque polymorphe, on a des scènes, des paysages sonores convoquant le désert et la boîte de nuit, le ciel, ses étoiles et sa lune ainsi que les grosses enceintes noires et le mur d’un home-studio, les sons du corps et le fouillis technologique. ...C’est un album lumineux, apaisé, démonstratif, certes, mais pas oppressant..." (Obsküre Mag. - FR)
www.obskuremag.net/chroniques/meta-meat-album

"... disque habité dont les polyrythmies tribales faites de beats et percus organiques se doublent d’arrangements électro-acoustiques entêtants et parfois même d’incantations chorales, pour donner corps aux crescendos de tension viscérale d’un soundtrack futuro-ethnique pour sérial thriller géopolitique." (Indie Rock Mag - FR)
www.indierockmag.com/article28372.html

"... l’ouverture à des expériences sensorielles où le corps est assailli de volées rythmiques et de loops aux confluents de la transe et du soufisme... Un objet musical aux croisements de la sophistication et de l’animalité, de l’intuition et du lâcher prise. Envoûtant." (Silence and Sound - FR)
silenceandsound.me/2016/12/26/meta-meat/

"... Meta Meat schicken den Hörer auf „Metameat“ nicht nur durch ein dichtes Geflecht aus Rhythmen, sondern auch in ein Wechselbad aus Stimmungen und unterschiedlichen kulturellen Einflüssen aus Okzident, Orient und Fernost. Der Weg zur Transzendenz ist gesät mit Steinen, dieser Soundtrack dazu eine Herausforderung." (Sonic Seducer - DE) - Ausgabe Dezember 2016 -

"... Резюме: если вам интересна гипнотизирующая, монотонная и массивная авангардная ритмичная музыка не только техноидно-нойз-индустриального толка, то данный неординарный релиз META MEAT очень даже стоит взять на заметку. На мой взгляд, это самый четкий альбом в октябрьской пачке новых релизов немецкого лейбла." (Machinist - BY)
www.machinistmusic.net/reviews/metameatcd2016.html

"... Ciò che colpisce di questo album è la perfetta creatura che nasce dall'unione fra la carne e la tecnologia : la musica è rituale, selvaggia e a tratti cattiva ma, come contraltare, assume un volto che ispira rigore grazie a un lavoro di produzione sonora accuratissimo..." (Ascension Magazine #45 - I) - Primavera 2017
