Fancy some forward-thinking and innovative music right now? Then please give ear to French trio CHAOS E.T. SEXUAL, who have been splashing trip-hop/dub sounds over their cold industrial metal and avant-garde soundscapes for ten years now.

Their rebellious third album 'Only Human Crust' takes you in a trance with their cold beats, beyond-the-grave bass frequencies and hopeless narrative infused with politically charged lyrics. Think Godflesh, Dälek, Neurosis and Techno Animal meeting amidst a hostile, dystopian world for an intense and haunting nine-tracker.

French underground's most loyal members since 2010, CHAOS E.T. SEXUAL is an ambitious project mixing massive drone/industrial soundscapes and hip-hop/noise-laden beats to produce a hybrid songcraft. Highly sensitive to anything visual and improv-related, the band always offer a live set that involves visual artists or video makers. Bass frequencies out loud, cold mechanical beats and sci-fi topics infused with political speeches that are disrupting the auditive approach, making it a subversive yet highly engaging sonic experience.

Following their dark experimentations infused with urban beats, CHAOS E.T. SEXUAL have issued two self-released albums: 'Ov' (2012) and 'Ovna' (2013). The band's third effort 'Only Human Crust' is far more more politically engaged than the previous records, with nine tracks that highlight the modern world's chaos and darkness, in the most compelling and intoxicating way. About 'Only Human Crust', the band says: "Laurent Gaudé's book Eldorado, that tells several stories linked with the crossing of the Mediterranean Sea by migrants, inspired us a lot, we realised that we shared the same topics, these are about capitalist totalitarism and the different kinds of control, addiction an intolerance coming out of our contemporary societies. You can see all of this through Ëmgalaï Grafik's artwork."

Recorded and mixed by CHAOS E.T. SEXUAL, and mastered by Chris Fielding at Skyhammer Studio, 'Only Human Crust' comes out on November 20th via Chien Noir and will be available on 2xLP, CD and digital.
