After exploring the universe of the First World War in order to criticize our society, infected by the same diseases as more than 100 years ago,
Azziard is now displaying a new concept in a much more radical line.
The band is now exploring the foundations of the human psyche, the low instincts of our species and the metaphysical concepts of Carl Jung already initiated by Vesanie, through a character whose madness is equalled only by the world in which we evolve.
Humanity is about to be dismissed by its own actions.

Après avoir exploré l’univers de la première guerre mondiale afin de critiquer notre société sclérosée et infectée par les mêmes maux qu’il y a plus de 100 ans, Azziard arbore désormais un nouveau concept dans une ligne bien plus radicale.
Le groupe explore les fondements de la psyché humaine, les bas instincts de notre espèce et les concepts métaphysiques de Carl Jung déjà amorcés par Vésanie, au travers d’un personnage dont la folie n’a d’égal que le monde dans lequel nous évoluons.
L’humanité étant en passe d’être révoquée par ses propres actes.

Prepare to confront your dark unconscious

-- FROM THE TRENCH TO THE HUMAN DECADENCE --

After 2 albums based on the First World War, the band is back with a brand-new line-up (including members of The Negation, Insain, End of Mankind), a new theme, a radical hard line, and a new musical direction.

Azziard was on tour with Marduk and Ragnarok for the Viktoria European tour 2018 in UK and Nederland. They will play with Watain, Aura Noir, Der weg einer freiheit... for the Tyrant Fest 2018 and Dead Congregation, Antaeus... for the Winter rising fest 2018.

Azziard has played also with many of the big names of extreme Metal, on tour or at festivals, including Marduk, Ragnarok, Belphegor, Behemoth, Der weg einer freiheit, Emperor, Moonsorrow, Setherial, Solstafir, Gorgoroth, Tsjuder. The band also performed at HELLFEST 2014, TRIEL Open Air 2014, Black Metal is Rising, and Ragnard Rock Festival.

The 4th Album, second part of the Liber novus trilogy, is planned for September 2019.

-- CONCEPT --

The band’s new concept is based on a mix of Carl Gustav Jung works and the deep, dark instincts of the human species. It explores the complexity of the human psyche and its metaphysical aspects, the archetypes of collective unconsciousness, and the process of individualisation responsible for the decadence of our civilisation. Each man has a fundamental evil side, a side that is longing to be expressed.

Métampsychose is the first opus of a new cycle of 3 albums based on the Red Book of Carl Jung which explores, over the course of several nights, the nightmares and phantasms that haunt the main character in his quest to find a master that will allow him to cede to his darkest desires and descend completely into the evil that inhabits him.

Humanity is about to be dismissed by its own actions.
