La Breiche ("the witch") features Yan Arexis (Stille Volk, Sus Scrofa, Coume Ouarnède, and Common Eider, King Eider), and Patrick Lafforgue (Stille Volk, Sus Scrofa, and Hantaoma). The two musicians are also the creators of the cult festival L'Homme Sauvage, held in Midi-Pyrenees each year. After their 2017 debut Le Mal Des Ardents (CSR 224CD), Le Rite opens a new door, with post-folk sounds close to post-rock, influenced by ancient music, with folk used in a modernist way. Dark, ambient, and yet mystical... deep with grandiose landscapes. The sound of La Breiche is situated at the crossroads of early music and dark ambient; ambient music, industrial music with a strong ritual dimension. Their electro-acoustic music is based on old instruments such as the hurdy-gurdy, mixed with analog synths, field recordings, and ritual objects, taking a mystified look at nature, archaic societies, rites, beliefs, lores, and animism. Presented in a stunning six-panel digipak with artwork by Dehn Sora. RIYL: Bark Psychosis, Sigur Rós, Wolves In The Throne Room, Hexvessel, Ulver, Rosa Crux.
