A FEW WORDS :

After 2 years in the making, including the preproduction process, studio recording, the actual production, our respective student life, doubts and anticipation, excitations and disappointments, we can finally share with you something that we're very proud of.
Our main goal is achieved, we truly love the music we’ve made and that’s pretty much all that matters for us.
The best thing that could ever happen now would be for you to like it at least as much as we do.

So maybe, let me introduce you to it, with the right choice and amount of words, non sense and approximate images.

CHASCADE is the perfect summary of what ITZAMNA is, of who we are.
The result of a lot of combinations, powered by our similar tastes and our strong friendship.
We wanted it to be as eclectic as possible in genre, but as consistent as possible within the production itself.
And if every track has a little description, story, thing, attached to it, it’s pretty hard to really step back on the final object to see it as a whole, especially since the amount of dedication we put in it prevents us to discover it like new.
Anyway. We love cats and waterfalls (« chat » and « cascade » in french), so here you have something that should never happen in music, a poor word play as an album name.
Hopefully music wise it’s complete, you got some mathrock, japanese stuff, smooth jazz rock, fusion, progressive elements, djent, hip hop grooves, electronic stuff, orchestral majesty, and pretty much everything you could expect from the « internet independent prog field » these days.
Whatever the genre, whatever the styles, whatever the way, some would say « Music for the sake of music » .
And still, we managed to craft some high quality material that has nothing to do with an amateur mixtape recording, while keeping it 100% autoproduced and 100% crowdfunding free. Which is why it took us that much time.

The main consequence of taking so long to get where we are today, is that our expectations about that album changed over the time, and the spirit we had when we started evolved a bit more every time we added a new instrument, finished a new track.
The second consequence of it is that it allowed us to mature every single details in every tracks to shape it perfectly the way we wanted.
The third consequence is the best, we are broke.
Please do yourself a favor, if you like this music and want to support us no to be broke, buy it !

Track Name: Je Vivroie Liement (Ft. Carla Fernandez)
"Je vivroie liement,
Douce creature,
Se vous saviés vraiement
Qu'en vous fust parfaitement
Ma cure.

Dame de meinteing joli,
Plaisant, nette et pure,
Souvent me fait dire: "aymi"
Li maus que j'endure.
Pour vous servir liement.
Et soiés seüre
Que je ne puis nullement
Vivre einsi, se longuement

-- (VERSE)

Car vous m'estes sans mercy
Et sans pité dure,
Et s'avés le cuer de mi
Mis en tel ardure

--

Je vivroie liement,
Douce creature,
Se vous saviés vraiement
Qu'en vous fust parfaitement
Ma cure.

--- (VERSE)

Car vous m'estes sans mercy
Et sans pité dure,
Et s'avés le cuer de mi
Mis en tel ardure

---

Je vivroie liement,
Douce creature,
Se vous saviés vraiement
Qu'en vous fust parfaitement
Ma cure.

Dame de meinteing joli,
Plaisant, nette et pure,
Souvent me fait dire: "aymi"
Li maus que j'endure."
Track Name: Red Dragon (Ft. Matthieu Romarin)
"A great sign was seen
A woman clothed with the sun, the moon under her feet
Mesmerizing me by her overwhelming light
Boiling me by her devastating warmth
On her head a crown of twelve stars
As brilliant as my emerging obsession.

A Great Red Dragon was seen
Seven heads and ten horns, on his heads seven crowns.
Crushing me by, this boundless force
Taking control of my timid mind
A tail pulling a third part of the stars, of heaven down to the earth,
Burning me through each and every impact,
He's now under my skin

His own image is only to be seen by the one who has the teeth,
The old books are wide open now and discharge death,
By this violent river of water getting out from his mouth,
Every insignificant eyes have been gutted, gutted of their souls
The becoming is almost complete without any possible journey back."
Track Name: Dies Veniet
"Ecce enim, Dies veniet, succensa quasi caminus.
Et erunt omnes, superbi, et omnes facientes impietatem.
Stipula
Et inflammabit, eos dies veniens.
Dicit
Dominus, exercituum,
Quae non relinquet
Eis radicem, et germen."

Malachi 4:1
