28 strings … and some skins – 7 musicians, 5 nationalities – 2 violins, 2 cellos, 2 guitars, 1 drum set.
REVE GENERAL is a collaboration of the groups Metamorphosis + Volapük
LEO RECORDS wrote about METAMORPHOSIS –
„This contemporary-pop-punk-ethno-composers quartet from Austria, Czech Rep. and Turkey drifts in a copy-paste manner between files of hardcore, hypnotic, fragile, noisy and yet incredibly beautiful music. With their second album on Leo Records they celebrate the sound of a string ensemble which could easily play the film-score for any David Lynch flick.
Although their hybrid approach is reflecting our time, Metamorphosis is not crossing over, but diving through and manages to extend beyond – spinning a totally unique sound.“
The group played over hundred concerts in many European countries and US.
Metamorphosis have inspired directors, dancers and artists. Pieces by the group were used in several documentary films and for dance performances. Metamorphosis also created a soundtrack for Gustav Machaty’s film classic „Ekstase“ and performed it on the FILMFESTIVAL DIAGONALE in Graz. Read more

Stomping electro-like rhythms with occasionally complex time signatures and blurry distorted sounds and fragile, broken and mesmerizing songs.
