La Morte Young is a supergroup including the members of the bands Nappe, Sun Stabbed and Talweg. Their first studio album, released 5 years ago, has been acclaimed by some press and has also been "tip of the tongue" from the now defunct Volcanic Tongue mailorder blog run by writer David Keenan and musician Heather Leigh.  A Quiet – Earthquake Style is the second studio album by La Morte Young, recorded during a residency in november 2015 at GRIM in Marseille. It’s always hard to describe a record when you are part of it, so here is a the thoughts of Stefan Neville (Pumice, Olympus,et.al) while listening to it : "This is an unpleasant, confusing & transcendental new record by some very heavy french bastards. It is destructive & haunted & ridiculous. Side one begins with cold violent ripping splatter. Almost rock music but tortured & distressed like a tough metal buffoon falling over wearing dangerous nail studded armbands tumbling & screaming down the steps of an infinity dungeon, into an open sewer where his bullet belt short circuits the worlds electricity & his shitty corpse gets boiled up into a spiritual paste of false hope. On side two we hear a duet between apocalyptic wind & some bulldozers. Cannons are fired into the ocean and a chorus of concussed whale's reply unhappily. Then the world dies and robot scanners on autopilot move in to forever check the pulse of the rubble & giggle amongst themselves for eternity. None of this feels like mere humans playing instruments to me. It is a huge, terrifying, obscene & hilarious record..."

For fans of Sunn O))), the Dead C and François Bayle.
