LE GRAND GUIGNOL originates from Luxembourg and began under the name of VINDSVAL.
The changed their name to resemble the Le Théâtre du Grand-Guignol in Paris. The theatre specialized in natural horror shows. The audience endured many short plays that were inspired by terror. Some of the audience would become aroused while others would faint or vomit due to the naturalistic special effects.
The Great Maddening is all of that wrapped up in a Riesling Meat Pie.
What has become truly maddening is that LE GRAND GUIGNOL hasn’t release anything since this album dropped in 2007.
Nonetheless, this album is a masterpiece. I will always cherish this album and you will always find it in my playlist.
