Swiss metal band TROUNCE will release their debut album "The Seven Crowns + Live at Roadburn" on 20th of October 2023 via Hummus Records (Digital /Triple Vinyl / Vinyl / Double CD - Preorder link:

TROUNCE is the new band of Jonathan Nido (founder / CEO of Hummus Records and guitarist of Coilguns) surrounded by illustrious musicians gravitating around the Hummus Records label (details below). The project was instigated by the prestigious Roadburn Festival, the European Mecca of heavy music commissions Hummus Records in 2022 for an exclusive project to present on stage this year’s festival.

Here's the Official Lyrics video of the 1st single 'The Wheel'
The single will be released this Friday (June 23rd) on digital streaming platforms.

"The Wheel" serves as the final track on the studio album, representing the culmination of this songwriting session in 2020. It holds a special significance as the first song to introduce the captivating universe of Trounce. This composition embodies the essence of Trounce, blending catchy melodies with powerful blast beats, epic choruses, introspective moments, and an intense, heavy mid-tempo section. It truly encompasses the diverse elements that define our sound. Interestingly, "The Wheel" remains faithful to its live performance, delivering an almost identical experience on stage. Towards the end, the song takes a dramatic turn with an apocalyptic choir, skillfully crafted by my trusted collaborator and mixing engineer, Kevin Galland. In those final moments, his synthesizers and vocals come together to create a haunting and atmospheric conclusion." Jonathan Nido

Behind TROUNCE’s boastful name hides the Roadburn-instilled new project of Jonathan Nido (mastermind of Hummus Records and guitar player in the infamous Coilguns) : the European Mecca of heavy music commissions Hummus Records in 2022 for a exclusive project to present on stage this year’s festival.

To honor that flattering proposal, Nido digs up from his covid-drawers some Dark Funeral inspired riffs, and gather a troop of noisemongers surrounding the label: the staggering

Luc Hess (Coilguns, Louis Jucker, Closet Disco Queen) on drums, the falsely retired Renaud Meichtry (Kruger) on vocals, the young prodigy Léa Martinez (Svarts, Etienne Machine) on Moog and vocals, Naser Ardelean (Yrre) on guitar and the noisy Anna Sauter (Yrre, Dubuk) on samplers – with the massive help of Kevin Galland’s live sound and Guillaume Ducommun’s impressive lightshow.

TROUNCE play their seminal show on April 2023 in Tilburg (NL), blowing away the 2000 people attending Roadurn’s “Terminal” stage that day. In the meanwhile, what might have looked like a black-metal parade has turned into hybrid and epic reckless rock, merging ferocious blast beats with shoegaze, doom, noise and refreshing punkness.

TROUNCE then dives, with reduced personal including Icare’s Axel Vuille on drums, in the recording of “The Seven Crows”: a frantic interpretation of Roadburn repertoire boosted with another five shellacking songs. The eleven pieces switch from nocturnal to solar, feature epic charges and metallic bulk, topped with vocals between preaching and vociferation, about the usual topics – a lot of people dying, God the Father and the other way round.

The project serves as a playground for Jonathan Nido's artistic deviations, and the band aims to deliver a complete experience from the studio to the live environment. With photographs by Roberto Romano and illustrations by Bryan Maita, Trounce also offers a very bleak yet beautiful visual landscape to complement their work.
