Ossuaire – Le Troubadour Nécrophageophile

No Image Available

As said in our first issue, I admire underground tape labels like Nihilistic Holocaust from France. This time Gabriel of NH re-released the demo of French Death Metal act Ossuaire, who released this demo back in 2005. The booklet of the tape just has the right attitude, everything is illustrated and cut & paste. And it is printed on beige paper, to give it an ancient feeling. Mission accomplished! The demo consists of 3 tracks and an intro, all in a dark and obscure atmosphere. Although it speculating about the lyrics, but it seems to be about a damned and perverse Troubadour (a folk poet-singer), who tells about all the horrors and insupportable scenes he could see, and be involved in. Isn’t that hunky-dory! The atmosphere is definitely all about smelling the stench during the Plague-era. Music wise you can expect a mixture of old Morbid Angel and early Cannibal Corpse. So there is a bit of complexity as well as old school brutality. During “Le Flèau” you can hear some Bolt Thrower groove, but I would like to keep the Bolt Thrower reference only for this track. If you are a fan of tapes and 1990s Death Metal Torture, contact Nihilistic Holocaust for this demo. (Ricardo)
