DBP is the solo project of Esoteric (UK) Keyboard player Olivier Goyet. This outfit took shape during the summer of 2005 while on tour in Europe, writing some possible ideas of new compositions for Esoteric, but which eventually could not fit with the band and were associated together under one new Project. It's taken nearly 8 months for completion of the first album of DBP, which has been mastered by Greg Chandler at Priory Studios (Sutton Coldfield - UK) and is now released on Aesthetic Death Records.

The music expresses a certain form of beauty in sadness and melancholy. Endless Space and Time where one can linger eyes closed. A moment of reflexion on the inner self.
Breaking the shell Reviews (extracts):
Metal-Waves.com : rated 18.5/20 - Olivier weaves with "Breaking The Shell" an intimate and cerebral canvas threaded with silk and gold, and extracts in a Baudelaire like manner, the Beauty and the Moving which is meant to represent Evil.
chaindlk.com: rated 4/5 -[Olivier] is also capable to turn one track from dark to melancholic by adding only a few melody lines and this is a key point if you want to keep the attention of the listener.
obskure.com - rated 80% - Thus this instrumental optic give birth to this first official album of a mysterious and sensual shape (the swaying walks of the electro-world of "A Projection of the Mind"), changing along an economy of layers and giving "Breaking The Shell" a coherence, a spectrum.
mentenebre.com - rated 8/10 - "Breaking the Shell" is a recommended album for all those looking for new musical dimensions of surrounding sounds, danceable beats, touching industrial and dark ambient fanatics, all this in equal parts. A great surprise for our demanding ears.
Cruciablast.net - There's a deep melancholy that courses through the nine tracks on Breaking The Shell, an introspective gloominess that Goyet paints with an array of spacey, prog-rock synthesizers, old-school electronica and trip-hop beats, and other nods to mostly older electronic music.
