Following the huge success of their February headline tour and the release of their highly acclaimed EP Damballa’s Voodoo Doll, French boogie/swing metallers TREPALIUM return to the UK for more dates this summer.
Trepalium are a tantalisingly unique cocktail of death metal attitude and 1930s-esque New Orleans jazz swing, bounce and booze, Voodoo Moonshine is Trepalium‘s fifth studio release. A short but sweet collection combining voodoo mysticism and prohibition speakeasy culture, Trepalium serve up an enticingly potent form of foot-tapping groove metal. So strong is the swing that you’ll find yourself nodding along automatically – any listener who can resist the urge is either amazingly strong-willed, or just stone deaf. Keep an ear out for the band’s accompanying jazz woodwind/brass group, as well as the appearance of Gojira’s Joseph Duplantier on track 2, Damballa’s Voodoo Ball.
An active band for 13 years, Trepalium are well-known in their native France. Having already sold thousands of albums and undertaken two tours with Gojira, as well as playing Hellfest four times, Trepalium are sure to draw many more listeners under their voodoo hoodoo.
Their five date tour includes a slot on the Sophie Lancaster Stage at Bloodstock playing along side Trivium, Opeth and many more.
