"Each track of this record is an emotional elevator that alternates between travelling in the depths and returning to the light."
NOISE - 22.05.2019 -
Founded in 2008 and coming from France, Split Brain offers with "Discours Idylliques" his first album, after three EPs on which he took the time to refine his tracks. The musicians claim various influences and it is delicate to lock the band into a category. Composed of ten tracks, the album is a synthesis of several styles between a death base, sometimes melodic but also more brutal, and a dose of alternative, between hardcore and pop.

Each track is an emotional elevator that alternates between travelling in the depths and returning to the light. As an introduction, "Behind the Scenes of Thought" is perfect to attract us into this experience with the purity and melancholy carried by the piano. But the next three tracks are a free dive. "Idyllic Speech" and "Murdered Body" are true uppercuts with a mix between thrash/death worthy of Slipknot and death close to Soilwork.  In between, 'Caste Aveuglée' brings a little respite with a calm break in clear song declaimed in the spirit of a Misanthrope.

The rest of the album is just as rich and engaging. "Skeptical Criticism" and "Gratuitous Violence" are two artistic summits, roller coasters between pure violence and an almost pop air break with a clear song giving all its strength to the message. The strength of the album lies in this song in French, which allows us to immerse ourselves in dark texts evoking the decline of our humanity. "Machine Infallible" is of the same soul power. Very melodic death, the track switches to another dimension with a new break of incredible purity. Finally "La Valeur d'un Homme" ends the journey in beauty with a rough heavy death side that makes the head shake. But there is still that little moment of clear vocals that brings the little something extra.

With "Discours Idylliques", Split Brain signs a brilliant work, both powerful and sensitive, that should thrill more than one amateur of the above-mentioned genres.
