A French-Norwegian entity, STAGNANT WATERS’ self-titled debut is an awe-inspiring album of mutant music. Firmly rooted in extreme metal, STAGNANT WATERS present a highly radioactive mix of scathing guitars, otherworldly electronics, Dadaistic improvisation, uncompromising complexity, and unnatural tempos. Comprised of Norwegian vocalist Svein Egil “Zweizz” Hatlevik (Fleurety, Umoral, ex-DHG/Dødheimsgard), drummer/electronics operator/clarinetist Aymeric Thomas (Pryapisme), and guitarist/bassist Camillle Giraudeau (Dreams of the Drowned, Smohalla), STAGNANT WATERS have recorded a spontaneous, experimental, and energetic album, a maximalistic, hedonistic, and animalistic celebration of unfettered creativity.
