about

In October 2013 directly after a month long European tour Metal Rouge stepped foot in a 'legitimate' studio for the first time in their history. Elaborate plans for labyrinthine tape delay & spring reverb modalities were scrapped upon arrival, where jet-lagged and delirious they howled out two albums worth of material that they had spent the last month refining on the road alongside rapid fire spontaneous compositions scattered from borrowed amplifiers in a state of tweaked exhaustion. To the casual listener it was not always apparent which was which. Old pieces were spontaneously deconstructed in performance without prior discussion, and improvisations manifested as song forms. A dark energy pervaded the sessions, many gestures seemed channeled. Our minds were often engulfed in the moment leaving our hands to do what they had to. When it was over we had Broke In/Broke Out. Sister albums. We were as surprised as anybody as to what had happened. After 19 full-length releases and 11 years as a creative unit, Metal Rouge present Broke In/Broke Out. Escape in to/out of. One door shuts, another opens. Mourning brass sprayed with guitar hail. Brut raga possession, dark strings chime the universal moment, unconscious sermons delivered in a warm skull. Not conversation, but glossolalia. Not language, but meaning. Silence to sound to silence again.
