Évidemment, le Black Metal du Québec à leur manière.
A certain part of the scene there appeals to me quite a lot, one of those acts being Fortresse with their “Métal noir Québécois” and my personal favourite “Thèmes pour la rebellion”. Moribond, multi-instrumentalist and one of the co-founders of Fortresse, created Serment years ago, as the demo “Par-delà collines et rivières”, released by Tour de Garde in 2019, for a more atmospheric and winter-like approach yet keeping the focus on up-tempo and aggressive riffs as well. All packed with fine melodies and although heavily reliant on the keys, it is not annoying or over-the-top in any way which makes “Chante, ô flamme de la liberté” a job well done.
Fine Black Metal from Québec once again. (Ricardo)
