Demande à la Poussière (Ask the Dust) is a French band created in 2017 by former members from The Great Old Ones, Spectrale, Omrade and Würm. The project was to create music at the crossroads of Black Metal, Doom and Sludge with French lyrics. The name, which is the French title of John Fante’s best-seller book, is a common influence for the band and it will be the essence of a broody project, with acid and soily depressive tones punctuated by scarce melodic accents.
A first album was quickly recorded at the Lower Tone Place Studio and released in September 2018 with Argonauta Records. It was well received by the public and the press, and followed by a first tour in France, Europe and Dubaï. The will to write a new album emerged in the summer of 2019. The band returned to work at the Lower Tone Place Studio under the supervision of producer Edgard Chevallier, who endeavoured to capture an even gloomier colour. The resulting record is an 8-track album named “Quiétude Hostile”, which will be released on March 26th, 2021 with My Kingdom Music.
