This is the heaviest slab of metal I’ve heard in years. It’s so heavy… That I need a crane just to put it into my CD player- yet at the same time, there is an uncanny grace with which these environmentally conscious Frenchmen orchestrate their epic songs. The gravelly vocals are grating at times, and that’s the only reason I give it 4 instead of 5 stars. Harshly beautiful in a hauntingly pummeling way. Truly a Herculean effort from these French metal brothers!!! Check it out!!!
