French instrumental prog-metal trio Moozoonsii unleash their sophomore full-length album »Inward«
French instrumental prog-metal trio Moozoonsii stream their sophomore full-length album, »Inward«, which was just released yesterday, April 28th, 2022.
Moozoonsii, a Nantes-based instrumental trio provides powerful, intricating and sometimes even exotic musical paintings through prog metal. The most mystical and strangest creatures generally inspire the band, leading the underlying theme of their compositions. In doing so, Moozoonsii delivers a full-sensory music, spurring the audience to dive into the legendary atmosphere of that singular fauna. Powerful and natural phenomena, as well as almost supernatural alien plants merge into complex and groovy structures composed by Basile Chiariello (Ozma, Kadaï), Fabien Hervé (Muezli, Mamagreyo, No Chiefs) and Matthieu Bellemere (Watertank).

»Inward« is the first half of the »Inward/Outward« duology, and a new step for Moozoonsii, with the arrival of Fabien Hervé as their new bassist.
This first half takes place in a jungle, narrating the exploration of a mangrove, the encounters with various dangerous animals and vegetation, the insecurity as well as hypnose and poisoning.
What will come of it will be revealed in the conclusion yet to come: »Outward«, stellar travelling aboard its own psyche, must recover its consciousness before landing towards us, long after its older brother. Composed during Lockdown, »Inward/Outward« is our new chapter.
Recorded and mixed by Christophe Hogommat (The Dust Lovers, Mad Foxes, Tickles, 20 Second Falling Man), he also played percussions on the album.
Mastered by Brent Asbury.
