New EP "Ex Auditu (part 2)" out now!

 While "Ex Auditu (part 1)" saw songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Louis Lambert showcase a more aerial and luminous facet of his music through a blissful synth-laden post-rock daydream, "Part 2" keeps exploring the theme of wonderment and creation through nature while being a radical antithesis of this first chapter: bleaker, rawer and more metallic, it also creates a bridge with DDENT's previous work.
 All tracks on the "Ex Auditu" 2xEP were composed, performed and recorded by Louis Lambert. Mixed by Louis Lambert & Chris Fielding, mastered by Chris Fielding. Artwork by Sophie Ejzenberg, track titles by Guillaume Ossamot.
 DDENT is the instrumental brainchild of guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Louis Lambert and drummer Marc Le Saux. First EP 'Chien Noir' sees the day in 2014, which quickly leads to the addition of live musicians to the project. This milestone lays the foundations for a dark post-rock sound that induces an inevitable spiritual and sensory journey. While 2017 debut LP 'آكتئاب' narrated the introspective journey of a poet, their sophomore album 'TORO' (2018) deals with the search for truth through creation. The titles all refer to Federico Garcia Lorca's volume of poetry 'Llanto', and the concept of duende – a creative force that possesses the artist and against which he is forced to battle to be able to make his art. It is safe to say that literature and philosophy have always been a centerpiece of DDENT's music.
 In 2019, DDENT performed at Europe's biggest metal festival Hellfest, tantalizing both the audience and critics with their bewitching performance. As a result, Louis Lambert started working on the follow-up album 'Couvre-sang'. Entirely written and recorded by multi-instrumentalist Louis Lambert, DDENT's third album 'Couvre-sang' is a massive and poetic post-metal 11-track awash with dark, elegant atmospheres and intriguing thematics, described as "an experience that swallows you in dynamic and intense layers of metal" by Everything Is Noise and most notably "pure instrumental industrial bliss, a living breathing beast, crafted superbly, with real emotional levels" by The Sleeping Shaman. In 2021, he released a cinematic single and video entitled "VOLEMOI", however 2023 will be the year of the songwriter's comeback, with the new "Ex Auditu" double EP on Chien Noir.
