In Lingua Mortua - Salon des Refusés

SKU 21-Termo 007
"In Lingua Mortua's sophomore effort, Salon des Refusés, has been a long time coming. So it's no wonder it's a perfectionist's dream of a metal album. Featuring the absolute cream of the crop of musicians hand-picked both from the metal, prog and avant-garde scenes of Scandinavia, Salon des Refusés is the kind of album that is guaranteed to leave you breathless and speechless at the end of a listen. Lars Fredrik Frøislie (known from Norwegian prog giants Wobbler and White Willow as well as sessions for Xploding Plastix, Shining (SW), Angst Skvadron, Finn Coren and countless other artists) employs his full arsenal of analogue keyboards and synthesizers, and also unleashes the talents of Jørgen Munkeby (of Norway's no. 1 avant metal export, SHINING), as well as Niklas Kvarforth (Shining (the Swedish one)), Thebon (Keep of Kalessin) and Ketil Einarsen (Jaga Jazzist, Motorpsycho). To top it off, there's a legion of guitarists on the album. Jacob Holm-Lupo (White Willow), Hallvard Hagen (Xploding Plastix, Kvist) and Trondr Nefas (Urgehal) just to name a few. "Lars' refreshing blend of an impressive intellectual display and direct raw power has been a big inspiration for me. Lars is a true pioneer. He was the first person to invite me to play sax in a black metal setting, and in so doing, contributed strongly to SHINING's later development of the Blackjazz genre." -Jørgen Munkeby, SHINING. Even though this really is the kind of album that defies description, it is safe to say that Frøislie's love of everything from 90's black metal, via 70's prog and electronic music, to soundtracks, classical, jazz and punk all shine through in Salon des Refusés. Mixed and produced in his usual audiophile fashion by Frøislie, the album is also an aural delight with a huge, wide soundstage and outstanding clarity - a rather rare treat in the world of metal.
