Don´t be misled by the name of this one-man-project from France. In Shadows and Dust has nothing to do with Kataklysm´s “Shadows and Dust”. Started in 2014 by Stephane Thirion “A fleur a peau” is the third full length album.
The album has a well rounded mix of Swedish style Death Metal like very old In Flames and early Necrophobic combined with stylings and melodies of Dissection and Naglfar. Every track is full of the hate and aggression of Death Metal and the furious speed of Black Metal. There is really no time to breath except in the breaks between the tracks. After the duration of 40 minutes your ears will definitely be ringing, but in a very good way. This album is totally worth listening to it. (HaCeBo)
