And as we do not forget our non-french reader friends, here is a english translation made by ourselves (only the part talking about us):

“The Altherax got used to light a barbecue in the evening concert, and as it is well covered for rainy evenings, I restore myself with a hamburger while the scene of Until The Uprising is prepared. I am surprised, when I come back in the room, by their professionalism. Nice scrims backdrops with neat logo of the band are arranged on each side of the drums, it’s clean. The group goes on stage. They are just three, which surprises me because I had already seen (and not loved) Until The Uprising at the MJC Picaud a few years ago, and I do not recognize anything: is it the same band? I wonder. Philippe explains me that there have been changes, but yes, this is the same band. In the end only stays Philip, drummer of the original lineup.

The musical style has evolved a lot too, now closer to djent and a band like Meshuggah. What is funny is that the band has just released an album and tonight they are going to play almost all of it to us. The band plays with three members tonight because Lilian, newly recruited as singer, is absent and it is Mick, one of the two guitarists, which takes the singing. A drum and two guitarists, no bass guitar (there is a bass player on the album but it is no longer in the band and they have found no one suitable for the moment).

The drummer also sends numerous samples that he controls with his Mac computer. It was him who did the drums intro on samples backing tracks, very nice. The following is enough atomic, with two seven strings guitars tuned down, which decimate our brain. The singing performed by Mick, while playing, is impressive, and he has to repeatedly catch his breath between songs. The set is physical! Harun of the band Trepalium comes just in front of the scene for a while, he seems to appreciate the guitar duo. The sound lacks a little of bass guitar for my taste (it’s a bassist who speaks so it’s not very objective). The crowd responds well and they finish highly acclaimed by the audience.

Set list: 
 


01. Introspection

02. Black Hole
03. Searching

04. Until The Uprising

05. Alien

06. All Is One

07. Claustrophobia

 See you folks!

And as we do not forget our non-french reader friends, here is a english translation made by ourselves:

“France has quite a pool of skilled formations and if many have doubted or are still questioning themselves, one realizes daily and much more with Until The Uprising and its new “Twisted Reality” album. What album it is given me to present today, friends…

If Americans are more used to offer us this kind of bands, how Until The Uprising has been able to hide such a talent? Until The Uprising this is classic death metal, progressive, djent, electro sounds, hovering parts. In short, a huge slap … There is nothing more to say. Lovers of art, melodies and power are called to appear please because they will be served. Today, Until The Uprising presents us “Twisted Reality” and what to say? The guys from Nice hit really hard! “Twisted Reality” is an album full of modern metal, enriched by numerous meetings and band influences which can be Betraying The Martyrs, Dagoba or We Butter The Bread With Butter. “Twisted Reality” is not less than 10 tracks of high class and high quality, period; we will not drag on over a hundred years. If today we tend to put labels on a bit of everything and anything, and especially anyone, Until The Uprising has his own style, his universe, his soul, his own world in some sort and do not copy anybody. Know that the group is able to throw blast beats, incessant rhythms changes which swing us back and forth, as well as flattening us on the ground with a hovering atmosphere supported by a layer of electro sound … Pure happiness. You have to admit, that’s mastery … Michel, Anthony, Philip and Manuel take us further into the stratosphere, drives us up high like the title “Until The Uprising,” which is for me the best piece of “Twisted Reality” (they are all good but I let you discover them!). The small southern guys make us bad, very bad even, but God it feels good…

While listening to “Twisted Reality”, it does not bother one second, but take your time, enjoy this album, listen to it several times, give it the time it deserves, sincerely. “Twisted Reality” is THE slap in these recent weeks. This is a big discovery, a nice surprise. Follow them very (very) carefully. FYI, they look for a label. Word to the wise…”

 

See you folks!

New Twisted reality album review on french webzine “Aux Portes du Metal”

Hello there!!

Here is another review of our album Twisted reality published on the french webzine “Aux Portes du Metal” on November 14th.
As it is in French, we translated it for you non-french readers. Cheers!

“Until The Uprising is a band founded in 2008 by the four members that are Michel, Anthony, Philip and Lilian. The band mixed the influences of each member and released on October 28 its first album, Twisted Reality. The members had indeed preferred to tread the stage and gain a good reputation before releasing this album.

So what about Twisted Reality? Well we found a strong djent influence, but not only. This album features swift songs, whose violence is carried by the singer screams. We are also treated to a lot of blast beats and other fulliginous enough drums accelerations. The melodies of the guitars are varied, sometimes convoluted, twisted, sometimes more “soloish.” The rhythm part is far from being caricature and knows how to renew itself in order to give the songs some air. The groove is however not set aside, take for instance the beginning of Alien: this riff is incredibly effective! And I was talking to air the songs: the clean singing plays this role very well, although it can still be improved. We can even find in the guitar parts some dissonances reminding us (by far) the sounds of deathcore bands like Thy Art Is Murder.

But so far it’s still commonplace, it takes a touch of madness to stand out, and as such, Until The Uprising meets present. All Is One has a small air à la Sikth in the melody that is not unpleasant. In addition, there remains a small non-professional side in the sound, singing and in the very fresh aspect of the compositions that is not to displease me.

With this album, Until The Uprising manages to tickle my attention in the direction of hair growth and offers very strong compositions. A band to follow!”
