"Traverser les tempêtes" is a genuinely crafter Métal Noir Québecois anthem featuring hypnotizing synth and epic guitar riffing. Sale Freux on their side present two songs of furious and mysterious rural French black metal. Sale Freux keep things as they should be crafting traditional black metal sounding tracks that can recall at times early underground Norwegian acts such as Isvind or Strid.
