BenNasr AlGhandour is a two piece band formed in 2012 by Damien BenNasr (guitars) and Adrian AlGhandour (drums). The group, which ranges between math, rock, punk and hardcore delivers incisive and demanding music based on groovy rythms. After a first EP, "Le bruit isole" (Diptyque Records) released in 2013, and about thirty concerts across France, including openings for Unicornibot , Gâtechien or Anorak, the band decided to tackle his first album for 2015 .
It’s a 7 track album recorded live, engineered, mixed and mastered by Vincent Gregorio from 20G recordings (Jessica93,...) in late february. It includes featurings from Geste on keyboards, Thharm on violin (Thharm, Attila Krang, Porn on the Bayou…) and vocals by Yujim (dDent, Parlor Snakes, Yujim band…).

About BenNasr AlGhandour :
Abdul Alhazred has seen the Unspeakable but has not heard the Sound.
From the Mediterranean shores to the turbulent undergrounds of Arabian deserts, the call turns into a howl. They say ears bleed, sliced clean, when hearing it. Only remain the dark groove and a hot breath up your backbone. And the rythms that would drive mad each and every soul.
BenNasr AlGhandour incarnates the Sound : some endless post-you-name-it, a bit of spasmophilic afrobeat, seasick grooves and stories that ends in a desert…
Sometimes kindly described as ”coupé, décalé”, this punky duet plays somewhat dancing raging tunes, as so many short epileptic and fun stories.
In three words : two goddam chaps.
A few words about the guests on the album :
Yujim (Vocals on "Fade To White")
After the first stage we shared together, it was obvious YuJim had to collaborate to this record. Accomplished musician and chameleon singer, he's enlightened this traack with his talent.
FC from Geste (Keyboard on "D3")
Old-time friend of the band, FC, who's also bassist in the band Geste and has a solo project with machines, has given all its electro potential to this track.
Thharm (Violin on "Raymond, le bûcheron")
There's no way you could escape him if you hang around Porte de Montreuil late at night ! A few rehearsals after, Thharm gave us his best trash-noise bayou-based violin lines for this track.
