Symphönïk Kömmandöh » is the new album from SATAN JOKERS,
compiling the greatest hits of the group with a symphonic orchestra
composed of forty musicians.
album includes 16 songs and seals the meeting between Renaud Hantson
and Florent Gauthier, musician, music arranger and professor at the
Conservatoire, who combines both Rock and Classic cultures. This
meeting occurred after a concert, played in the south of France,
where Florent Gauthier introduced himself with the same second-degree
humor and cynicism as Renaud Hantson. He claimed that this symphonic
project was the brilliant idea he needed to make his combo goes on,
not wanting to put an end to his band, formed in the early 80’s.
this very unlikely and tendentious idea brings the quatuor into a
pioneering and innovative position as it’s the first time that a
French Metal band dares to mix two registries as different as Rock
having made a preventive triptych with the psychiatrist and addiction
doctor Laurent Karila (« AddictionS », « Psychiatric » and « Sex
Opera »), SATAN JOKERS surprises once again by showing up where we
don’t expect them. The band reasserts its legendary taste for mix
of styles and artistic risk, which will delight the faithful
followers and annoy the reluctant and hard-hearing people.
title « Symphönïk Kömmandöh » pays tribute to MAGMA and its
leader-drummer Christian Vander, one of the mythic figures of the
band since its original line up, in the 80’s before a long
discographic interruption from 1986 to 2006, wished by Renaud Hantson
who preferred exploring new musical prospects (« Starmania », « La
Légende de Jimmy », « Notre Dame de Paris », around 15 solo
albums and 8 more with the band Furious Zoo).
this new opus, the bassist Pascal Mulot, the guitarist Michaël
Zurita and the drummer Aurel Ouzoulias, demonstrate once again, as if
any proof was still required, that this reunification brings together
the best musicians of the French Metal musical stage.
Renaud Hantson confirms that he is definitely "The French Voice of
Rock” just like Glenn Hughes for the Anglo-Saxon culture.
and more united than ever, these musicians form the Dream Team of the
French Hard Rock, and it’s with a real pleasure that the « Sons of
Metal » from every generation will discover the re-creation of
titles like « Pas Fréquentables », « Sorcier », « Justice », «
Quand les Héros se Meurent », « VIP HIV », « Trop Fou pour Toi
», « MILFS » and some others.
the band career from its beginning to the present day, this album
offers one of the greatest surprises for the beginning of this year,
displaying 16 songs that might blow your head permanently and
highlight the great dexterity of unique and passionate musicians.
