Behind this rather swaying title stands the band Argile, being two members
quite well known French band, Misanthrope. Musically it might be easy to
them to their mainband, but still for me, Argile offers a whole lot more.
Combining avantgarde metal, like maybe a tad old Moonspell or similar bands,
olds chool cult metal, in the vein of Celtic Frost. The Celtic Frost
quite obvious at times, doing the same trick from their 'Into the
Pandemonium' disc in
the later years of the 80's. That is anyway not the whole story here, as
creates something on their own. A atmosphere that is rare in todays modern
world. It is actually, more about the quality of their performance, and the
have given to it, like the music has a life on it's own. You can't call it
death or black,
you can't call it heavy, you can't call it doom... It's all in one, being a
album that you
can listen to over and over, grasping a new moment every time.
I do have some questionmarks when they cover a DarkThrone track 'In the
of the Horns', but they also come out of that with a reasonable result.
Argile have shown a very strong debut here, I can't think of any bands this
from France today. Vive la France!
