Fall 2012. The CNK is getting ready for its brand new large-scale offensive. After wreaking havoc in a large part of the European classical music heritage with their previous album “L’Hymne à la Joie” (Season of Mist), this time, the scandalous collective is taking on some famous pop, rock and metal standards. Devastation, beating up, sabotage, profanation: words don’t fail to describe the offence the band is just about to give to the outraged Occident’s face.
Supported on this opus by the crazy veteran Snowy Shaw (King Diamond, Mercyful Fate, Dream Evil, Dimmu Borgir, Notre Dame, Therion...), The CNK mistreats 10 different artists such as the Beastie Boys, Leonard Cohen, Emperor, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Guns n’ Roses, or even the very controversial Gary Glitter!
With the help of heavy industrial and authoritarian rhythmics, backed with Snowy and Hreidmarr über versatile voices, these 10 hits are crushed in The CNK steamroller, to finally be born again as death and fight stadium anthems.
The bell tolls for the Western culture! Here is its Requiem as it’s supposed to be: subversive, amoral, cruel, and violently funny.
