Album Review
Ragnar of Ravensfjord
Reviewed 2008-04-15 
Strange Noisy Black Metal duo (Serpent de La Moth and Geneviève) from Quebéc. Unlike many before them they know how to work with Noise, Industrial, Psychedelic AND Black Metal the right way. Pure abyssic bleakness in realm of Benighted Leams, Velvet Cacoon and Gnaw Their Tongues.

(((((1)))) Hazy, lo-fi cackling witch vocal BM/Noise/Industrial trinity that really does “it”.
(((((2))))) Spacey, often “psychedelic noise” with doomy choral vocals. Very layered and pretty odd but excellent all the way through.
((((3)))) Odd-metered, buzzing BM with repetitive gothy male & female vocals ‘ala Benighted Leams and a drum machine buried in the mix. Gets more interesting over time with lots of random weird layering & effects.
(((4))) High-pitched eerie resonation that goes into fast-ish BM tune with spastic vocals. Weird but semi- amusing in it’s batshit insanity.
(((((5))))) Repetitive, odd-metered tremelo riffs and chanted and hissed vocals, tweaked proggy keyboards and shrieking noise/drones. Crazy but awesome!
((((6)))) Hazy, blizzard of noise & psych and BM. Oddly majestic in the places but mostly layered and off-kilter and sometimes droning.
((((7)))) Howling wind, battering insane BM & noise nailed together. Totally wicked and fukked up but it works since it’s kinda short & to the point.
