Review Summary: 6 songs of elegant composition.

Amidst a very structured and controlled environment, Aussitot Mort sculpt what is a very powerful and emotional debut with 6 Songs; rendering characteristics more commonly associated with French skramz, they expand themselves in a subtle fusion of genres which in turn supplements the band’s uniqueness and diversity. Their recent release Montuenga further builds upon and solidifies this harmonious fusion, but their origins can be traced back to 6 Songs, where Aussitot Mort take baby leaps in sticking themselves out amongst the European emo backdrop.

To give a single word that describes Aussitot Mort’s signature sound, one would have to settle for ‘vast’; whether it is through highly placed, post-rock delivered tremolo picked notes, or expansive and far reaching sludge/post-metal inspired guitar lines, there is always a constant balance and cohesion that remains inventive throughout. As can be seen with greater utility on Montuenga, the band’s use of delay effects and various other guitar enhancers greatly complement their sound. There is a distinct separation between the various guitar parts, with the higher melodies being played far out of reach from the rest of the song, as can be seen on ‘Une Once De Courage’, giving the album an almost ethereal and outward feel.

Melodious as they may be, Aussitot Mort poise themselves on the very edge of climax; each song has an undercurrent of suspense, and there is always a hint of vehemence behind every lush and fertile soundscape. Nevertheless, 6 Songs is inarguably a beautiful record; from the flowing lines of ‘Percuté’ to the unrestrained despair of ‘Le Desespoir Des Singes’, it maintains itself as a very successful emo album, bordering on various sounds and influences that ultimately make it a captivating and involving listen.
