meta meat is the collaborative project of two electronic musicians and composers: somekilos (half of 2kilos &More) and phil von (co-leader of von magnet) who share a deep passion for percussion and rhythms. the name meta meat associates the source of flesh (meat) with its passage beyond (meta). a very physical live act bound to propel our bodies and souls into another state, a state of release and trance, incarnating a wish to elevate our animalistic simplicity towards a higher conscience of being.

the duo's joined skills and energies combine real drumming & beats (somekilos) with real stamping & banging (phil von) as a solid foundation for a vibrant 'duel' battling against twisted virtual synths, samples and machines. as the electronic sounds are treated as radically as the acoustic percussion, the finished music of meta meat turns out sounding utterly 'tribal' - cruel, merciless, sad, pandemic but harshly accurate. two antagonistic cultures scrape and collide against each other, occidental versus oriental, modern versus archaic... and even an eastern asian third element is added to the balance to stir an even more complex and brutal electro-ethnic blend. what if this album was a weapon, the perfect soundtrack for our actual world wars? how can we envisiage a better world? let us first try to transcend its poignancy.

enhanced by the magnificent production and mixing of def, this debut album is a samurai pact, a commitment to raw musical integrity and an oath to elegant barbaric sonic power.
