Holy shit what a fucking album. My throat got hoarse because I couldn’t stop singing along with every song, this is so insatiably catchy and well made that it might be one of the best melo black albums released this decade if I’m being honest. Just a tinge of folkiness, distinctly french melodies, this is near perfect in terms of what it attempts to be. The length isn’t even an issue as I never wanted this to end, and really the only downside is that they tended to repeat similar sounding ideas a bit too much. But when those ideas are so damn good that is a minor complaint. Sincerely one of my favorite melo black albums ever, and easily a black metal AOTY candidate.
