    Nice stuff, that first clip sounds a bit more upbeat than usual.

    Hope this gets some U.S. distribution. Only see Japan sites at this time.

    Wayside will carry it, although coming from Japan it will probably be slightly pricier.

    I still have to get the old stuff. The only album I have so far is the old CD release of the first album, the one where it was re-titled 1313. I'll probably get Heresie next.

    Univers Zero recently composed music for a series of experimental short films made during the 1920s and 1930s.

    seeing sonny Nicolas on the drums in those pics makes me wonder... two drummers on the new album???
    ... or will Daniel take on a role of conductor like Roger does in Present???

    Who knows - but he only plays one track.
    Lets see what they do live, that might be an indication.

    No big news there - Nicolas had already played drums on the last track of 2010's "Clivages".
    His trio opened for UZ at Le Triton once, and aside from looking like a clone of his dad in his young days, he sounded like a pretty good drummer to me.

    Yeah, I've also seen Nicolas' band (if the name Metropolis might ring a bell >> not sure, though) opening for UZ a fair amount of years ago at a previous Soignies festival (then named Alter Ego)...
    Daniel had then joked that Nicolas was not only playing more concert than HE did , but everytime he had one, his own drum kit disappaered

    In the same conversation, Daniel had told me to check out everything about Aranis, who had only one album under their belt (I'm mentionning this so as to see how many years ago that was >> I'd say nine years) .
    Two weeks later, I was at Brussels' Kultuurkafe applauding them.

    Based on the list at the UZ website (but not the part I contributed to), it would seem that would have been around late 2007/early 2008, at either Verviers or Courcelles. So, more like 6 years ago. The list may be missing a few shows, but I don't think they'd played Soignies until the double-bill with Magma in 2010, if you leave out, of course, the very old days (1977).

    Actually they'd played that festival in

    October

    [23] Braine-le-Comte, (Belgium) "PROG FESTIVAL" (Braine is 7 kms away from Soignies)....the first three festival were organized there



    Now that I think of it, Daniel and UZ were not playing at the night I'm thinking of, but he was accompanying Nicolas and see them play.... However Anndy Kirk was also o the bill with his Khazma project that night (incredibly loud, though)... I think the post-rock group Cecilia :: Eyes and Hypnos 69 were also on the bill that night



    OK, I found the exact date on their site

    23/02/2008 - Festival Alter Ego - Soignies - with Metropolis, Hypnos 69, Khazma

    The new album sounds like it could be very interesting. More 'upbeat' as Ian said, but it definitely has the UZ gene. I'll be picking this up.
