Peste Noire - La Sanie des Siecles: Panegyrique de la degenerescence (Cassette)
Vieil e vil Black Metal Franceis
The original PESTE NOIRE album, already considered a classic and certainly influential since it's release! Violent and aggressive black metal with obscure and inspired guitar leads.
Lineup includes Indria (bass), Winterhalter (drums - also a member of ALCEST, BAHRRECHT and LES DISCRETS), and session member Neige (ALCEST).
NOTE: first limited copies were white tapes, remaining copies are black tapes at a reduced price.
Peste Noire has produced a bit of a rarity in the Black Metal world - an original sound. When so many bands are "paying homage" to the greats, they have taken their sound in a new direction, with guitar solos and unconventional riffing coupled with an atmosphere of medieval sickness. Black Metal fans will find much to enjoy here, but that's about it - La Sanie is a niche album that will likely not appeal to those who don't "get it"... - Metal Crypt 4/5
