2008, the "Weird Machine" panzer is signed on Listenable Records (Gojira).
With several inflammatory albums critically and internationally acclaimed under its belt, a pioneer's career, various punchy and solid alliances ( Young Gods) and a number of first class invitations on international tours (alongside Nine Inch Nails, Prong, Ministry, Faith No More and Godflesh), the Parisian precursor of groovy industrial metal beats carbonizes its era with a new lp mixed with napalm.
Recorded in Geneva, coproduced by David Weber, Marco Neves (vocals, development), Didier B. (keyboards, samplers) and Polak (guitars), composed by those three band members and featuring very special guests, the late Paul Raven (eminent bass player of Killing Joke, Godflesh, Pigface, Prong, Ministry) and Ted Parsons (Swans, Prong, Jesu), the ballistic missile plans to crash into our boomers in April 2008.
Industrially toxic, metallic, electronic, ethnic, electric, psychedelic and always more eclectic, Treponem Pal signs with this noxious "Weird Machine" a proper declaration of war. A urban time bomb of a manifesto, pure weapon of massive destruction and distraction seriously dangerous and severely open minded.
A sonic stream roller to check on stage during the European tour, already planned this year.

Raven died of an apparent heart attack in his sleep on October 20, 2007. He was recording with Treponem Pal on their new album at the time of his death.
