Echoberyl - "The Awakening of a Mutant Girl" - Compact Disc
Compact Disc in 6-panel Digipack incl. 8 pages booklet.
The Awakening of a Mutant Girl is a Sci-Fi B-movie without images that tells a story of marginalization and hope. It is about overcoming personal fears, the desire to escape and a declaration of otherness. The story of a girl who turns out to be a mutant from another planet wanted to be, at the beginning, a metaphorical tale but, during the eight months of work on the album, private tragedies and dramatic world events made Echoberyl decide to change a large part of the music. The result is an album very different from their previous work, more heartfelt, more electronic, more eclectic.
The Awakening of a Mutant Girl is conceived and written as a tribute to B-movies, especially sci-fi movies from the 50s and 60s, but also inspired by the work of the graphic novelist Enki Bilal and movie directors such as Yann Gonzalez and Michel Ocelot. Each song corresponds to a chapter of the story. Step by step a path of liberation is revealed.
