The well-named Dieu, french for God, is re-crafting the classic power trio formula in a free improvisation context, textural and visceral. The result is the live album Fore, spreading a powerful free rock with various prepared guitar, bass and vertical drums techniques, in which the band works their instrument's resonance at their most profound, in an instinctive and relentless movement.
