This was a blind purchase (remember those?) when I went to a record store last week, browsing through new vinyl. The artwork may be simple, but it caught my eye and the rest is history. Chambre Froide (French for "cold chamber") is a French black metal band and their music is exactly what you’d expect from the band’s name and the album’s cover art. Very raw, straightforward ‘90s-style black metal that just screeches through the speakers, spewing hate, despair and malevolence. There’s nothing pretty about this stuff. It sounds evil, dark, depressing – you name it. The lyrics are in French but most of the time they’re barely decipherable. It’s reminiscent of second-wave black metal, mixing the brutality of Scandinavian black metal with the rawness of the French bands of the time. I’m seriously having a hard time kicking this sucker off my turntable, just changing sides every time and going on my evil way. It sounds like the cover art looks like, and that’s that!
