Watch the Graceful Violence of the NON SERVIAM “Il Pleut Partout Derrière” Video

Non Serviam is a project that has been blowing us away with their creativity since they first contacted us. Every time we think they’ve reached a pinnacle of avant-garde industrial trip-hop sludge, they take it up another level. With equal parts grace and violence, peace and hatred, punishment and celebration, they mercilessly attack and soothe my brain cells with their aural majesty!

They’ve got a new release on the way in the form of their Il Pleut Partout Derrière EP that comes out on November 12th via Trepanation Recordings—pre-order it here. Right now, watch our exclusive premiere of their captivating official video for the title track “Il Pleut Partout Derrière” below…

Une seule fois
Un moment
Décapité, le roi
Fustigé par l’instant
Le temps…
Tant à comprendre
Il pleut partout derrière
Plus rien à apprendre
Ce sont tous des pervers
Se retirer les gencives
Pour ne plus jamais sourire

‘Il Pleut Partout Derrière’ is a heady and hypnotic mix of sombre, fuzzed out guitars, glitchy distorted trap beats, screams and ethereal vocals arranged as only Non Serviam can. Those who have heard Non Serviam’s previous work will know that absolutely nothing is off the table, genre wise and ‘Il Pleut Partout Derrière’ only aids to reinforce that there is truly no one else around doing what this talented and mysterious collective do. A creative genius to be treasured.

Both in terms of lyrics and sounds, this new 44-minute EP revolves around three main themes: sadness, despair, revenge, as well as the questions it raises. Is it liberating or alienating? Is it both? Composed of seven brand new unreleased tracks from Non Serviam, including two incredible covers (Nirvana’s ‘Something in the Way’ and Bloodiest’s ‘Obituary’), this new EP continues to experiment with the unorthodox merging of black metal and industrial music, breakcore and trip-hop, grindcore, sludge or even jazz and baroque music. It continues what already made the album “Le Coeur Bat” one of the most acclaimed albums of 2021 in avant-garde extreme metal, with numerous modulations, the use of unexpected instruments and this an improbable mixture of infectious grooves, complex rhythms, radical aggressivity, telluric riffs and pure violence.
