Douleurfantome, aka Creature, is Vincent Vigier. A one man guitar manipulator, thrasher, noiser, droner, genius.
The first track entitled "50Moloch" is a slow builder of dread filled static that erupts with fierce and intense walls of screaming guitars. It's like a tangled radio broadcast from a war torn future, ending with mournful yet harsh and crusty guitar clatters.
The second and final track entitled "55Leviathan" is a bleak dirge through melancholic noise explosions and celestial textures. There is an underlining sadness to be heard through the layers of fuzz and sludge.
Packaged in card windowed digipak with art by Vincent. Limited to 100 copies.

8/10 Brian Staff review, 23 July 2009Nothing like getting off yr shitter on Strong Pale Ale. Makes you feel like a man. I did in too much last night at a Marnie Stern gig. Brett got a double kiss off Marnie & her uber-foxy bassist so he's smiling today whilst i'm grimacing through this awful self inflicted vice grip head sludge nightmare. The only fitting music for this scenario is a CD on Dead Pilot by Douleurfantome. Good old-skool evil discordant doom noise & malignant guitar abuse. I've always been in awe of some of the further-out screeing sounds to be wrangled from a guitar so these passages of fuzzing, wailing, shuddering & moaning guitarchitecture are just the biscuit, Auntie Brenda. Out of the canon of noise merchants i'm quite a fan of the recent Skullflower stuff. Whilst this duo aren't quite that foreboding & majestic, there's a creative energy & earthy magic within these coruscating walls of distortion & nihilistic riffing. A pretty neat sound indeed and all the boys here voice their approval, i'm sure young Ant in his absence would be raising his hand too.
