Horizons, the new disc is the realization of a collaboration with Pascal Humbert, bass player of Passion Fodder. The album delivers a big intensity at the same time the dark side and blues. Cantat recalls his own version of the the story, considered as shocking by some people who may find it disturbing. He delivers his feelings in a musical universe wider than rock. He also gives a criticism of the society with songs « Le creux de ta main” and “Sa majesté”. Some songs are sung in English, i.e. “Glimmer in your eyes” and “Null and Void”.
