New Band To Burn One To (Morning Buzz): Denizen

The Morning Buzz edition of "New Band To Burn One To" today features Denizen.


Denizen formed in south of France between Montpellier and S├Ęte in 2003. After a first demo / EP and a first album, 'Far From Common Strategy' (2006) issued on the label Prototype Records, the group participates in a split tribute to Black Sabbath with the bands Illtemper and Stuntman.

Denizen then appears on a compilation produced in collaboration by Prototype Records and the Temple of Noise fanzine which found among other Tantrum, Basement, Marvin or Year Of No Light.

A second album, 'Snatches Into Uproar' was released in 2009, still on Prototype Records.
Denizen begins to move towards a more rock groove with Sludge and Stoner influences.

'Whispering Wild Stories' is the third album by Denizen. Classic Rock influences are even more assertive : a 70's typed riffing, the wah-wah, a more melodic singing and eight songs with simples structures. The group incorporates a standard of Rock'n'Roll, Sunshine Of Your Love by Cream.

As on the previous album, the mastering is entrusted to Nick Zampiello and Rob Gonella,
which have long proven themselves with groups such as Keelhaul, Converge, Scissorfight to name a few. The artwork is signed Jimbob Isaac, guitarist / vocalist of Taint and worked with Clutch and Orange Goblin.

Seventies inspired riff-based rock with a hardcore punk attitude is what Denizen brings to the table. Yelling at the top of his lungs, vocalist Fabien Aletto recklessly leads you through seven ear-splitting originals and a unique spin on the Cream classic "Sunshine of Your Love". Funky grooves, screaming guitar solos, and a need for kickin' the shit out of everything in site, Denizen will have you banging your head until it hurts.
