Some musical project I’m involved in…
Yrsel is a collaboration between Julien Louvet (Austrasian Goat, Death To Pigs, 14:13) and CJ Larsgarden (Ondo, APF, Forest City). Though hailing from different musical genres and from France and Sweden respectively, the two artists bonded following a split release on DIY label Burning Emptiness. YRSEL create complex, multi-layered and atmospheric music that fully explodes the genres of drone, doom and electronica resulting in a glacial melt of sound and texture.
In 2010 Yrsel released two albums, «Requiem for the three Kharites» (CD) and «Sacrifice» (vinyl-LP), both released via Aurora Borealis label. During 2010 the band also did its live debut with shows in France and Belgium.
The band released a new album (2LP and CD) 2013 called ”Abraxas” on 213 Records and Tuguska Label.
2015 the band played a few live shows in France and Belgium.
