Les productions Hérétiques are back and once again Tour de Garde teamed up with them to help distribute their underground gems. Here's what they have to offer this time:
SANCTUAIRE "Feu Sacré." Pro-MC
Sanctuaire returns with a triumphant new offering in which its melodic black metal and ambient incarnations collide. This cassette consists once more of medieval hymns of war, hateful yet epic black metal in the pure nordic tradition, with its own twist. Catchy riffs allied with a poetry of winter and death sung in french. The cold, buzzing guitars and sparse keyboard parts add greatly to the atmosphere, with a sound that is reminiscent of classics such as « Dark Medieval Times » or « In Times before the light ». This release is interspersed with immersive ambient tracks, meditative soundscapes that reinforce this facet of the project, making it stand apart from other known Métal Noir acts. Pro-cassette with orange shell, double-sided 8 panel artwork, limited to 200 copies..
NORDMEN "Nordmen" Pro-MC
Official cassette release of the latest Nordmen EP, dating back to 2010, for the first time on cassette. This re-release includes "Enfin chez Nous" as a bonus track, an exclusive song that appeared on our LPH compilation "Sous le Lys Noir" back in 2011. This one-man band conducted by Athros (Forteresse, Starlight Ritual, Déliquescence) offers traditional, hateful black metal interspersed with memorable melodies and folk elements. The production contributes perfectly to the EP's atmosphere which oscillates between cold riffs and melodic passages, which sometimes include traditional Québécois instruments. Dynamic and relentless black metal with the true spirit, echos from the north... Pro-cassette with xerox artwork.
OUBLIETH "Flamme ancestrale" MC
LAST COPIES! Ethereal Dungeon Synth from the immemorial soil of Quebec City. Oublieth is a side project of Moribond, the main composer behind the iconic Métal Noir Québécois band Forteresse. Originally released back in 2010 under the name Tritess and distributed only to close contacts, this recording is now properly reissued and made available on a wider scale. A mandatory Dungeon Synth release for anyone following the genre and a nice addition to any Metal Noir Québecois collection. Strictly limited to 150 hand-numbered copies, co-release between Tour de Garde and Les productions Hérétiques.
