ELEFANT Is Dead! Long Live ELEFANT! Here’s Their New Smashing Stomper ‘ULTRA PLUS ULTRA’…

21 January 2020

About a year after their eccentric debut album Konark Und Bonark Belgian metallic sludge noisemakers ELEFANT will launch their second longplayer called BEHAJUNG
on 24 January, this Friday. A press statement learns us that the new LP sounds like
it’s made by a new spirited, reborn band. Read the reincarnation story right there…

“The band intended to create a truly ugly, dissonant, senseless, distorted cacophony as the successor to ‘Konark und Bonark’. But instead all these beautiful, kind of normal, sometimes happy, sometimes sad songs came out. Life can be funny that way. Where previous releases focused on alienation, this ended up being about coming together. Saying yes to life (but still with an edge and a few loose screws) and thus ‘Bejahung’ was created’.”

Lead single Water Flowns Down, a mantra-like chant already revealed a new direction and brand new cut/clip ‘ULTRA PLUS ULTRA’ confirms that the former alien dressed and unorthodox foursome have taken another, more accessible, yet still a hair-raising sonic course. The new piece is an ongoing motorik-like stomper, a smashing sledgehammer
with a wall-of-bloodthirsty-guitars and scary synths. It is a motherfucking killer blast. ELEFANT is dead! Long live ELEFANT!.
