IFERNACH "Maqtewek Nakuset" Pro-MC
Ifernach is a newcomer in the Québec scene, based in Chandler, Gaspésie. The project stands out with its themes, exploring mainly ancient Native American tribe's folklore, nature, conflicts and betrayal. Musically rooted within traditional black metal, "Maqtewek nakuset" offers ravaging music interspersed with ambient parts, a mixture of melancholy and aggression.
NEIGE ET NOIRCEUR "Verglaspolis" Pro-MC
Within ice and darkness, a city rises. "Verglapolis", Neige et Noirceur's latest opus is a strong alloy of frequencies where heavy guitars, keyboards and hypnotizing drones collide with drums, like frost on huge metallic towers. Inspired by the tragic ice storm of 1998 in Québec, this album demonstrates once more Neige et Noirceur's skills and versatility. "Verglapolis" is a unique collection of metal, drone and ambient tracks, the supreme reign of the freezing cold and shadows.
VENEFICIUM "Epitaphium" Pro-MC
A forgotten gem from the Québécois underground unleashed nearly two decades later! Veneficium was created in 1994, in Québec City. "Epitaphium" resurrects the band’s 1998 auto-produced demo, with it’s original sound and spirit. Scandinavian-inspired black metal, dynamic, intense and melodic; just how the pioneers made it in the glorious years. Let yourself be immersed by these Luciferian hymns! For fans of old Emperor and old Obtained Enslavement.
