Wow! thats all i have to say. This band is very original, and they're incredible musicians. On the intro to the 1st song you can't help but think of Ulver. Contre Le Cycle begins with a celtic chant that Ulver has done in quite a few of their songs, and then it just rips into harsh black metal. Vehementor Nos is black metal with folk, classical and progressive influence. Theres everything you've come to know and love from black metal and theres more. The album is worth the money, though I do wish it was longer. I think the album was released on 07 though. This album is quite mature for black metal and its not for the typical head banging metal head who listens to metal music because its "br00tal" or "kvlt." This is music for people who enjoy an intelligent and deep musical experience. The lyrics are in French so I have no idea what the lyrical themes for the songs are.
