In Lingua Mortua's sophomore effort, Salon des Refusés, has been a long time coming. So it's no wonder it's a perfectionist's dream of a metal album. Featuring the absolute cream of the crop of musicians hand-picked both from the metal, prog and avant-garde scenes of Scandinavia,
"Lars' refreshing blend of an impressive intellectual display and direct raw power has been a big inspiration for me. Lars is a true pioneer. He was the first person to invite me to play sax in a black metal setting, and in so doing, contributed strongly to SHINING's later development of the Blackjazz genre." -Jørgen Munkeby, SHINING.
Even though this really is the kind of album that defies description, it is safe to say that Frøislie's love of everything from 90's black metal, via 70's prog and electronic music, to soundtracks, classical, jazz and punk all shine through in Salon des Refusés.
Mixed and produced in his usual audiophile fashion by Frøislie, the album is also an aural delight with a huge, wide soundstage and outstanding clarity - a rather rare treat in the world of metal.For more info and samples, go to www.myspace.com/inlinguamortua
