Sick Sad World (Nantes)
Post-Metal / Atmospheric Metal / Post Hardcore from Nantes (France)
Sick Sad World have always enjoyed combining genres to provide a personalised musical style in which atmospheric post-rock blends with the intensity of Post-hardcore and where Sludge breeds gently with black-metal. In some ways the offspring of a great orgy between Cult of Luna, AmenRa, Mono, Solstafir and Agalloch.

Some of what's been said about “Murmuration”:
“Meticulous, well-made from cover to content, it's the type of arrival that creates plenty of optimism for the follow-up” Coreandco 7,25 /10
“The album is magnificent in its creativity, and thus perfectly accomplished” Pavillon666 10/10
“Murmuration is a great album that should not be missed” French-Metal 18/20
“Murmuration is a rather nice surprise from a group working to get back on their feet. A solid base exists and one feels the implication and the sincerity behind the project” Metalorgie 13,5/20
“SSW is volcanic, they leave their mark and deliver a third title with an almost nihilistic manifest” W-Fenec
“Sick Sad World have hit hard as of their first album, which introduces the group as one of the leaders of the French post-hardcore scene thanks to their progressive and atmospheric influences insightfully showcased” Music Waves 5/5
