NOVELISTS FR - New Single/Video 'Terrorist'!

  Van Muylem    19 maart 2021

The track showcases a heavier aspect of the band with a focus on their newly acquired electronic personality. ‘Terrorist’ is a heavy and direct track that will please all the fans of the genre. 

After a very successful come back with ‘Lost Cause’ in November 2020 the band is now writing their fourth album set to be released in early 2022. By now NOVELISTS FR should be known to anyone who shows even the slightest interest in metal and hasn't spent the last years living under a rock. The four-piece, founded in France, has been producing their very own interpretation of Metal for more than seven years now which cannot be pigeonholed into any conventional category and breaks with dull genre boundaries. NOVELISTS FR hits hard with this new series of singles releases by working with Dan Lancaster, known for producing bands such as Bring me the HorizonBlink 182, One Ok Rock, etc.,  and show impressively how bands can develop musically without throwing their artistic principles overboard. 

NOVELISTS FR leave their musical comfort zone and create an alternative and experimental work, which gives hope for great things yet to come. The band combines different styles, which form an impressive overall picture from electronic passages à la Bring Me The Horizon with cutting-edge clean vocals to brutal gutturals and djenty guitar riffs in the style of Make Them Suffer. NOVELISTS FR are also taking a new direction structurally. Tobias Rische has been taking his place at the mic now and completes the originally purely French quartet after the surprising departure of ex-singer Matteo Gelsomino. Tobias, who had previously lent his voice to the recently departed Metalcore band Alazka, brings new shades to NOVELISTS FR and presents himself from an impressively ambivalent side by taking the contrast of clean vocals and gutturals familiar from NOVELISTS FR already to an absolutely new level. Whether musically or within the band, NOVELISTS FR were definitely heralding a new era with Tobias and their previous single, released in 2020 'Lost Cause'. “We had remained true to our old familiar style for three albums now and only polished it up from record to record, when Tobi joined we decided it was time to reinvent ourselves”, comments Nicolas.

The Parisian NOVELISTS FR have been very busy in recent years. Since the foundation in 2013, three albums have been released and there has been a lot of touring. With their unmistakable style, which combines spherical elements à la Northlane with technical playfulness in the sense of Erra, NOVELISTS FR were able to win over crowds of fans in their early days already. Today, Novelists FR are bearers of hope for modern Metal and arouse the urge for headbanging and wild moshpits among young fans as well as long-established ones.
