AORLHAC
L'Esprit des Vents
CD Digipack

Quote from label: "L’esprit des vents, third album from the trilogy started with La Croisée des Vents (2007) and followed by La Cité des Vents (2010), mark the band’s return after 7 years of discographic absence and 10 years of existence. The album is built on a desire of continuity, yet in the same time a will to break with what has been done : a more elaborated sound, an assumed maturity. The subjects are once again local, regional and occitan legends and tales, but also story of famous smugglers or belligerent figures who marked some periods of our country".

BARUS
Barus
MCD Digipack

Quote from label: "Massive, crushing, raw, Barús channels emotions through technical music while delivering a complex and sincere death metal. Alternating stiffling atmospheres and controlled chaos, the band seamlessly interweaves heavyness and raging fury to create musical pieces during which each sonic evolution is a stone added to the Barús monument. Like a lead downpour summond by imperious declamations and powerful, abysmal groans, the band’s music besieges the listerner’s senses and takes on a new dimension through the four tracks of this EP".

DELUGE
Æther
LP Double Gatefold

Quote from label: "Thunder rumbles from afar as the rain falls incessantly, needlelike, merciless. A wild storm suddenly breaks out and fades out to quietness, nothingness. DÉLUGE The band delivers a razor sharp blend of Black Metal and Post-Hardcore for an incredibly modern, visceral and atmospheric result. The crushing sound of Æther, resulting from the work of Christophe Edrich (The Ocean, Hacride, Klone, …) and Joey Sturgis (Oceano, The Acacia Strain, Born of Osiris,…), will assuredly leave a mark on the swarming Black Metal scene. DÉLUGE can already be counted as one of the future spearheaders of the Black Metal / Post-Hardcore scene. Æther is a combination of thundering drums and scathing riffs wrapped in a stifling frozen atmosphere".

HEIR
Au Peuple de l'Abime
CD Digipack

Quote from label: "Their first tracks are noticed thanks to the powerful and disturbing intensity released by the Black Metal breaks and accelerations combined with the uncanny quiet of slow and atmospheric melodies, evocating an oppressive anxiety and a deep torment. The pillars on which the band stands are the tales of human weakness and cowardice, and the exercice of its enslavement to these vices. The band’s influences are the Black Metal and recent french Post-Black Metal scenes as well as the north-american references of Postcore, but the exploitation of its themes leads the band to make a cross-influencial music, mixing them to Sludge, Post-Rock or even Stoner, creating a really contrasted, but coherent and unified music".

IN CAUDA VENENUM
s/t
CD Digisleeve

Quote from label: "Started in 2010 by Ictus later joined by N.K.L.S. in 2012, IN CAUDA VENENUM has matured its music to deliver a form of solemn yet radiant Black Metal tinged with a Post Rock feeling. The first full length of the band is a cathartic concept album touched by the mark of Death and embodied by the art of Jeff Grimal (THE GREAT OLD ONES). From utopia to fatalism, the band’s work depicts human passions and illustrates the porosity between life and death through such themes as Art, History and Legacy."

LIFESTREAM
Post Ecstatic Experience
CD Digipack

Quote from label: "Formed in 2012 by members from the Black Metal and Death Metal scene, LIFESTREAM offers an ethereal and mesmeric Black Metal. Sometimes melancholy, sometimes lugubrious and occult. It is during the Summer 2014 that the band enters the Darkened Studio to record its first album entitled “Post Ecstatic Experience” which presents various approaches to the correlation between ecstasy and collapse. This duality is reminded in every performance, tragically bright. In this sense, LIFESTREAM is the mirage of a reachable happiness, the radiance of a dead star, it represents the fragile bridge linking Man to Mysticism, Rapture to Madness or even Suffering to the Fall of individual."

MAIEUTISTE
s/t
CD Digipack

Quote from label: "A complex and orchestral album masterfully executed. A journey through Black Metal and ambient music… an exploration of various musical territories, such as folk rock, jazz or doom.
Maïeutiste delivers an unclassifiable yet universal experience during which the boundaries of Black Metal are shattered without ever losing its aggressiveness.
Written over a period of 5 years and deeply rooted in extreme metal, this first album breaks free from all the conventional aspects inherent to the very concept of genre and comes alive through each of its 11 epic tracks. Maïeutiste recorded their full-length in several places to do justice to the album’s unexpected and versatile nature.
A travel diary to rediscover during each listening".

MONOLITHE
Nebula Septem
CD Digipack

Quote from label: "Amongst the contemporary Doom Metal bands, which arose to the world stage during the early 2000’s, French-based MONOLITHE, whose musical journeys opened up brand new horizons for the genre, stood out from the mass since its inception more than 15 years ago.
MONOLITHE’s music, grandiose, epic and transcendental, needs to be lived more thanlistened to. The first four records consist in a science-fiction themed musical saga that mixes heaviness, mysticism and complex structures tinged with hints of progressive flair. The listener is invited into a world of beauty, horror and nothingness spanning across the whole universe".

MOONREICH
Pillars of Detest
CD Digipack

Quote from label: "The gloomy and harsh atmospheres combined with thundering blast beats and crushing mid-tempo sections so prevalent in MOONREICH’s music have evolved and reached higher spheres with this third full-length. Once again recorded at the famous Hybreed Studio (Glorior Belli, Temple Of Baal, Seth…), and mastered by Magnus ‘Devo’ Andersson (Marduk, Funeral Mist, Ofermod …), this new album asserts the band’s identity through its dark and muggy atmospheres. A straightforward album filled with a true individuality, which will take the band to the forefront of the French Black Metal scene".

PENITENCE ONIRIQUE
V.I.T.R.I.O.L
CD Digipack

Quote from label: "Pénitence Onirique is born from an ancestral and powerfull bicephalous mystical appearance. The band delivers a dark and intense Black Metal, with a complex and frank brutality, half-way between an alchimical ritual and an introspective preach. Taken from the depest pains, their first offering, V.I.T.R.I.O.L, is taking us for a initiatory journey to the meaning of death".

PENSEES NOCTURNES
Nom d'une Pipe !
CD Digipack

Jamais l’excentricité et le génie de Vaerohn n’aura été aussi loin. Tout en poursuivant la même ligne directrice que ces prédécesseurs, cet album d’avantage Groovy et Jazzy, n’est comparable à aucun autre. L’interprétation, les arrangements, la folie, le travail sur le son et les voix… Tout surpasse largement les précédents albums de Pensées Nocturnes. Contrebasse, accordéon, trompette, cor, tuba, saxophone, cor anglais, hautbois, basson, clarinette, piano, flûte, trombone, violoncelle, violon... autant d’instruments que de personnages misérables, mais ridiculement joyeux et fiers. Des clowns, des monstres, des bêtes de foire le sourire sadique au coin de la bouche. Ca swing, ça danse, ça n'a pas de sens, c'est pittoresque à souhait, mais c'est génial. Une œuvre pour les amateurs de musiques au sens large du terme.
