Wild, weird and unforgiving Black Metal from France. There’s something kinda “off” in the structure of their songs but that’s the charm. Demented tunes chained to a casket full of killer riffs and very claustrophobic atmosphere. Nothing happy or Hot Topic friendly here. Killer stuff. |
(((((1))))) Spiraling riff fighting it out with straight up riff from the other guitarist. Feral, snarling vocals ‘ala mid-period Darkthrone gone down to the catacombs of Paris. Bonus points for the “eeeeuhhttrtchcch!”
((((((2)))))) Bassy, clanging percussion, creepy whispered to shouted vocals, very claustrophobic atmosphere.
((((3)))) Slow, doomy, repetitive as hell but interesting. Bleak but still very melodic in the guitars vocals sound like Mayhem’s Atilla underwater. Weird.
(((((4))))) Catchy fuzzy psych (!) with more shouted & snarled vocals Amazing painful screams (around 3:30-3:37) in the grand tradition of Hellhammer’s “Triumph of Death”, grows into more madness.
((((((5)))))) Warped, bombastic, mid-paced to fast (in the second half) rudimentary Black Metal with solid heavy “totally necro” riffs.
(((6))) Cymbal-laden Black/Doom, bleak as fukk sound. Some interesting shifts here & there, but drags on too long.
(((((7))))) Bombastic, massive guitar laden Black Metal. Good bass sound around 5:20. Very filthy & riffy sound all the way through.
