Indulgence was build up on the poems of the French poet Arthur Rimbaud, he was a representative of symbolism and one of the great innovators of poetry during those days. The poems of Rimbaud were already an inspiration to several musical releases. The most known is the concept album Sahara Blue (1992) produced by Hector Zazou with, among others, David Sylvian, Ryuichi Sakamoto and John Cale.
But Vidi has chosen an unopened path. He mixed the lyrics of the famous poet in a dreary whirlpool of avant-garde black/doom metal riffs, cold trip hop with electronica and ambient parts. His voice screams, rasps and talks with deep emotional content. On track two, Tête de Faune, Vidi reaches the same ambient atmospheres of Hector’s Sahara Blue. Even though his voice distortions the romantic vibe, his rough whispering takes this awesome track to another dimension. The piano and organ sound creepy between the black metal riffs while on La Première Soirée part one and two, pumping trip hop and acoustic guitar got fused in sharp riffs and angry screaming.
With Indulgence, Vidi walks away from any genre. He doesn't repent his own musical interpretations of Rimbaud’s words and doesn't give a lack to what the world might think. We welcome the work of Kreationist which is stubborn, creative, mean and challenging. This is an album for open minded souls who seek new musical journeys, consider us one of them.
