In 2006, Yhdarl was born out of Déhà's mind as being a pure, untamed catharsis of extreme emotions. The first album, "Humainly Sick" was a horrible mixture of harsh noise and suicidal doom metal, and was somehow acclaimed by fans of Wormphlegm, Black Bile, Senthil, ...
Years later, the uncompromised album is still a milestone in the discography of the band. Déhà decided to bring it back from the dead, inviting 6 people to make it thicker, harsher, yet well produced.
This album contains four songs of unprecedented sick doom metal, an amazing heavy cover of "Insomnia" from known band Faithless, bringing the sickness of the insomnia well in front, and a noise ending mastodon to close this long, difficult album.
Maximum volume and darkness recommended.

Déhà is an unsung hero of heartwrenching tristesse. No matter what style he engages himself in, the result is always pure and comes from the soul. I met him once to pick up the SLOW - V vinyl. He is a gentle and down to earth person. He knows emotional pain like no other and luckily has the unbelievable talent to translate this into countless forms of musical endeavours. Tons of praise. And well deserved. Iwein Denayer
