Cyril Glaume Une basse Metal, à la fois rondement funky et – paradoxalement – froide, âpre et massive. Des cuivres très présents mais évitant toute exubérance mal venue... Et les uns et les autres de se donner la main dans un contexte libre de toutes contraintes, entre Kong, Nuclear Power Trio et Chrome Hoof...

This is not a drill I repeat: this is not a drill Go to shutter down Seek immediate shelter This is your emergency broadcast system fucking you up May God be with you The following instructions are vital for your safety Look out of your windows Do not stay silent Now go out and interact with everyone God is with you This is a false alarm A wrong button was pushed But we are now sure the system is working
Spun Sugar 02:44
What you get 03:26
Red flags 02:26
Choreomanic 02:17
Off with the figurehead
Time to let it out Now that all is said and done Time is running out We'll perish, all as one So we let it out We fought, nobody won Everybody's out What else can you do but Shout
Calling God 04:28
Take the money give it to me now Here's the money give it to me Take the money give it to me now I'm so fucking ready Alright... Easy... You can kick me right in the balls Nothing can hurt me This is me running through the walls Nothing can stop me


CHOREOMANIC saw the light when the world came to a halt in spring 2020.
With cancelled tours and no local gigs, musician Joost W. van der Graaf started writing music in which different influences from his past came together.

As soon as the material was there he reached out to some great players to record with him.
Once mixed and mastered at Nutsville Noiselab, The Hague, the album CHOREOMANIC was a fact.

Joost has long been fascinated by the concept of Choreomania and the Medieval Dancing plagues. With today’s reality the phenomenon seems to have become relevant once again!
This project is not only a musical statement but also a call to action against (cultural) oppression.
May everyone move and create in freedom!
