Based out of the French city Lille, Verlies is an avant-garde Black Metal band playing dark, strange, and experimental music. Without restrictions of conventional song structure, Verlies is all about creating dark and claustrophobic music with a strong emphasis on atmosphere. Ranging from piercing and uncompromising Black Metal, to experimental jazz melodies, to post-rock sensibilities, and everything in between, the music is raw, bold, and truly exceptional. Songs change pace and vibe frequently through their lengthy playing time, using many different techniques and methods to tell their story. Vocally, founding member N. mixes ferocious and tortured screams with enchanting and morose clean vocals that truly draw you in providing some uplifting moments alongside the raw hatred and despondency. Verlies’ debut album “Le Domaine des Hommes” is full of surprises but remains raw and never leaves the Black Metal vibe too far behind, instead using it as a base for their other sounds to draw from. Many bands these days try their hand at an unconventional approach to the Black Metal sound but only a few can pull it off genuinely and Verlies is one of those bands. Too often, the term “Black Metal Art” is thrown out haphazardly, but we humbly believe that it fits in this case!

Headed by founding member N., the project of Verlies started as a one-man project, but now has a full live lineup to spread their unconventional hatred throughout Northern France. Their debut album “Le Domaine des Hommes” was previously released digitally through their Bandcamp page, but now the album will get an official release in a noble and carefully designed 4 panel digipack, including a 12 page booklet and a bonus sticker while supplies last. The first cooperative release by Hypnotic Dirge Records and Throats Productions!

"Taking a heavy jazz and post-rock influence and melding it with emotional, mournful grimness is the base of the stew concocted by this solo project, and the deeper in you dive the thicker and more potent it gets. A sense of groove driven by the counterpoint between the bass and lead guitar quickly becomes the star of the album. It takes a few minutes of getting used to as these are usually the last instruments given heed by a band that claims to be atmospheric anything. But it’s a refreshing change of pace that injects a dynamic rarely heard among practitioners of the dark arts. Long, ever-changing songs make up the meat of Le Domaine Des Hommes, fitting given the role of the instruments. “Maladie” is the best example of the band’s kitchen-sink approach to the music. One minute a torrent of unrelenting waves is crashing down and the next they turn to calm waters as you drift out into the open ocean, enticed by N.’s dreamy clean vocals."
