Montreal’s Sepulchral Productions is proud to announce the November 9th release of three new black metal juggernauts. Varying shades of grimness and black metal might are offered in the industrial force of Borgne’s Entraves de l’Âme, the chilling atmospherics on Forteresse’sPar Hauts Bois et Vastes Plaines,and the raw/ambient plague of Neige et Noirceur’s La Seigneurie des Loups. Information on each of these stunning albums is included below.
Borgne – Entraves de l’Âme
Drown in Nothingness
Die Trying to Take Off the Rope
Suffering to Buy Our Poison
After the mechanical fury of IV, Borgne is back with a more complex and torturous opus on which the martial and brutal parts are interlaced with darker, more eerie moments. On this album, Borgne mastermind Bornyhake has allied himself with Xasthur’s Malefic and Vinterriket’s CZ who supply very haunting keyboard pieces to the music. But don’t let the somewhat more organic side of this new album fool you, Entraves de l’Âme will plunge you directly into a universe of hatred and horror…
Forteresse – Par Hauts Bois et Vastes Plaines
For its third album, Forteresse takes a more hypnotic and introspective approach and offers a majestic and melancholic opus that is sure to appeal to the fans of the group. Athros’ voice, Moribond’s sweeping guitar melodies and that ever cold and raw sound, all trademarks of the band, are as ever-present as always, but the outfit has also developed it’s atmospheric side by adding keyboards passages that add an ambient touch Forteresse’s own Métal Noir Québécois. As the album in itself is but one long journey and has to be listened in its entirety to be best discovered, the group has elected to name all tracks by the same name as the album…
Neige et Noirceur – La Seigneurie des Loups
Croix de Feu, Croix de Fer
Ancien Folklore Québécois
La Seigneurie des Loups
Les Plaines de Krolok
While its split with Monarque is still fresh, Neige et Noirceur strikes again, for the first time under the Sepulchral Productions banner. Without a doubt the best release of the group to this day, La Seigneurie Des Loups features, as usual, a raw Black/Ambient breed that might bring Paysage d’Hiver to mind to certain while forging it’s own identity as well as having a very Quebecois, side. Cold, dark and hypnotic, Neige et Noirceur summons images of these long, wintery Quebec nights!
