  BLUT AUS NORD Disharmonium Unbreakable Abysses 2022 Debemur Morti Productions Avant-Garde Black Metal  Le silence après du Mozart, c'est toujours du Mozart...Voici venir le retour tant attendu des théoriciens de l'esthétisme dément, les dieux vivants de l'univers hallucinogénique...Blut Aus Nord...Le Silence après Blut Aus Nord c'est toujours du Blut Aus Nord... Disharmonium - Undreamable Abysses by Blut Aus Nord Vindsval et ses acolytes continuent leur oeuvre de déconstruction radicale du black metal tout en restant l'une des formations primordiale du genre. Après un Hallucinogen pêtri de rock progressif et un retour à la noirceur au travers du projet Forhist, BAN revient à son talent fou pour l'atonalité, les guitares dissonantes, les voix fantômatiques dans le mix (plus fantômatiques que jamais d'ailleurs), des blast beats fulgurants à de longs moments ambient futuristes dignes d'une BO de Tarkovski. BAN fait de la musique, pas simplement du black m

GOLIARD : Interview with a black metal band from Medellin / english & french text - Le Scribe Du Rock

Goliard, a black metal band from Medellin, , has been delighting our ears with its epic and aggressive music for three albums, all of them sumptuous. Signed to the excellent The Ritual Productions, they have become one of the Scribe's favourite bands, so it was worth an interview! “In taberna quando sumus…” o “Quero mihi similis et adiungor pravis!” Hello GOLIARD and thank you for answering my questions...You founded the band in 2010 in Medellin, Colombia...can you tell us the story of your band ?  Since 2008, Víctor had been working on a Black Metal project called Bohemian Euphony, when it dissolved, in 2010 he rescued some musical ideas and with a more ambitious lyrical concept and new members, Goliard would be shaped with the recording of Cantus Goliæ (2013 EP) which is a 4-track promo from the debut album, a couple of years later the definitive line-up with which the 3 full-length albums have been released is consolidated: Cadáver as drummer and lyricist supporter, Iván as ba

Review - GOLIARD - In Taberna - 2022 - The Ritual Productions - Colombian Black Metal - FRENCH + ENGLISH TEXT

  GOLIARD In Taberna 2022 The Ritual Productions Colombian Black Metal C'est déjà le troisième album des colombiens de Goliard que je chronique, c'est dire à quel point j'apprécie ce combo sud-américain. Après "Iconoclast hymns" et "The Darkest Hour" (retrouvez les chroniques en bas de page) voici venir "In Taberna"...En substance, voici ce que je disais en 2020 de "The Darkest Hour" : " A l'écoute tout n'est que tyrannie, majesté, attitude guerrière et épique. Un Black Metal empruntant au classique ses grilles d'accord pour renforcer ses côtés wagnériens (et ce sans l'once d'un synthé à l'horizon). Goliard c'est du pur Black Metal, dans toute la noblesse de son ouvrage. J'avais évoqué Dissection pour parler du précédent album car, si les colombiens affichent aussi des influences Death Metal, Thrash et Heavy Metal au compteur, tout comme le  groupe de feu Jon Nodveidt (sauf des soli fort Heavy), il

REVIEW - ENG/FR - GOLIARD - THE DARKEST HOUR - BLACK METAL - THE RITUAL PRODUCTIONS - 2020

GOLIARD - THE DARKEST HOUR - THE RITUAL PRODUCTIONS 2020 Black Metal  I had already said it when I reviewed "Iconoclastic Hymns": Goliard are not appreciated at their true value! But it's not too late to make up for this infamous injustice since the band is releasing a new album, The Darkest Hour. As you can be from Medellin (like them) and not be part of any cartel, you can play Black Metal in South America without being a  Sarcofago clone. Goliard, who are celebrating their tenth anniversary here, are only reinforcing their personality from album to album. If the previous one had already greatly impressed the Scribe, what can I say about this "The Darkest Hour", which simply dazzled me.  Listening to it all is tyranny, majesty, warlike and epic attitude. A Black Metal borrowing to the classic its tuning grids to reinforce its Wagnerian sides (and this without an ounce of a synth on the horizon). Goliard is pure Black Metal, in all the nob
