Cold, bone-chilling, freezing to death…that´s just a few examples which came to mind when I first read the name Glaciation….and I was right.
Glaciation play ice-cold French Black Metal. I say consciously French because, when you listen to them for a few minutes you can tell that they are from France and this is nothing bad at all. I totally love French Black Metal, as a matter of fact, fresh blood was absolutely necessary in the scene. Especially the vocals with the harsh and tortured style are a trademark.
The whole album with all its aggressiveness makes you feel like standing in the middle of a frozen icy devastated landscape where there is nothing but a wasteland of the damned full of fear and helplessness. The fast headbanging passages are interrupted by epic slowdowns.
I totally enjoyed listening to this record. There are many little details you can´t catch with the first run. (HaCeBo)
