ANGMAR, the epic Black Metal horde from Normandy, offers its third album, made of old songs but never recorded nor released before. "Cénotaphe" is a tribute to their roots, may it be musically or conceptually. On this record, ANGMAR performs Black Metal as in the early 90's, intense and cold, but still with this strong identity which made them one of the leading bands of the genre in France. All tracks are sung in French. The album ends on a tremendous cover song of BATHORY's "Shores in Flames". ANGMAR members are also a part of bands like VALUATIR, ANNTHENNATH, QUINTESSENCE, NORMAN SHORES...

A makeshift encampement, in its center a large bonfire. Around it, both men and women circle, coming together in combat meditation and readying themselves and their bodies for the inevitable. Some consume select mushrooms, staring into the fire and altering their mind, leaving behind their humanness for some hours and becoming berserks in the process. Their time has come: half-naked and armed to the teeth, the heathens' battlecry resounds. The horn is blown. Their enemies do not stand a chance. David Fischer

PSA: if there was an album you heard a couple years ago and thought it was ok, listen to it again and you might love it.
That's what happened to me with this album. I cannot fathom why it didn't stick with me back then. Same thing happened with Decoherence's Unitarity for that matter. Matten
