Pim B. : After ‘To The Void’ from 2011 ‘Enfant De La Nuit’ is the second album by France’s Ixion. The band hasn’t changed much and it’s still Julien Prat playing all instruments and taking care of some parts of the vocals. The other vocal parts are done by Thomas Saudray and Yannick Dilly. Musically it’s a mix of melodic doom/death and New Wave-like music. There are similarities to be found to bands such as Swallow The Sun, Ras Algethi and Canaan. Most importantly Ixion sounds quite original, which is pretty special these days. Atmospherically, bombastic, floating and still to the point. My advice to you is to listen carefully to this band.
