Music is an obscure and ambiguous discipline, whom forms reflect in full light the mysteries of the soul. As most of the art forms, it deals with the paradox of the materialization of thoughts, feelings and beliefs. It reveals what is hidden, dives deep in the depths of mind, and bring back its ghosts to the surface for everyone to see.
And this is what Mhönos’ music is: a slow drowning, an immersion, a quest and a profession of faith. It seeks and evokes ghosts of times forgotten, horrors of a religious nature and the subsequent human fears and beliefs. A droning litany of pain from souls fallen from grace. Choirs, strings and percussions used to evoke a tenebrous mysticism and summon an impure state of trance amongst the believers.
This French congregation saw the light in 2009 and quickly created its own cult. Limited releases and stunning live performances (that should NOT be mistaken with regular “concerts”) gathered an audience of curious fanatics, and made Mhönos a spearhead of everything disturbing, audacious and true in the fields of black arts.

March 27th 2015 was a date of choice for Sektarism. The congregation made one of its first ceremony in Paris, co-headlining a night organized by its long-time friends and supporters from Le Fleuve Mécanique. The scene was set at Les Voûtes, an old industrial vault with a unique atmosphere, alongside a gathering of experimental artists such as Helel (for a listening session of their last tape), Concrete Flesh and Ensemble S.A.I. . Our Holy Ritual Doom was merged with some of the best that harsh noise and contemporary music can offer, a demanding and special mix of musical integrism. This event ended as one of Sektarism’s most powerful and immersive ceremony ever, a paroxysm of devotion hopefully recorded.
The result was so satisfying that Sektarism decided to release this recording as a testimony of both this remarkable celebration and the bonds that link us to all the artists that shared the stage this night.
Strictly limited, ‘Les Voûtes’ is a taped declaration of spiritual frenzy and musical fanaticism.
A mark of excellence to push the boundaries of extreme music.
