Please welcome BONJOUR TRISTESSE to the Lifeforce Records roster

After the track ‘Lifeforce’ could be found on “Par un sourire”, the band’s debut album, the collaboration between BONJOUR TRISTESSE from Southern Germany and the Leipzig-based label LIFEFORCE RECORDS is hardly surprising.

“Your Ultimate Urban Nightmare” set to be released on July 27th is the first countable result of the collaboration. The vinyl version of the album will be handled by the fine people at Supreme Chaos Records.


Album cover


BONJOUR TRISTESSE is an atmospheric black metal project, that Nathanael (KING APATHY (former THRÄNENKIND), HERETOIR) started in 2008. While the first album could be described as a rather classic depressive black metal album featuring lyrics about isolation within urban life, the second album consists of more multilayered tracks focusing on creating atmosphere. Inspired by anarchist thoughts, the second album deals with oppressive realities within everyday life in industrial societies and questions civilization in general. There is definitely also a post-whatever-feeling and unembellished catharsis that moves outside the usual conventions – true to feeling and somehow existential.

The drums on “Your Ultimate Urban Nightmare” were played by Moe from GRAVEWORM, while Eklatanz of HERETOIR contributed all screams.
