HYPNOSIS GUMBO is a collection of odd stories where feathered serpents rub shoulders with dying underwater monsters, and invisible forces struggle under incandescent comet rains. This tale takes us to the heart of voodoo ceremonies among drifting reliefs, steeped by jungle and fire. Lots of fire, fire in all its forms, central theme of the album.
Originally a solo project, Henryspenncer operated a real change and turned into an actual band with this album.This new incarnation turned the proper Henryspenncer’s psyche-noise-doom-progressive mixture into a rawer version, maybe just more rock’n’roll.
Hypnosis Gumbo has been written and recorded by Valentin Féron and Julien Magot, now joined by Carl Boisson, Charlie Batalla (Illegal Process) & Thomas Kuratli (Pyrit) to make Henryspenncer’s fire grow bigger.
