It's obvious from the contrasting illegible band logo and sylvan forest artwork on the cover of Nazrak's Cantiques funèbres that you're in for some kind of melodic/symphonic black metal. This is the band's debut and it is short, clocking in at just over 34 minutes. It features some nice raspy vocals and blasty drums that are mixed low so as not to overshadow the more melodic elements. I wouldn't call this symphonic as the guitars are the main instrument but there are a lot of keyboard elements rounding out the sound and filling the slower passages, giving Cantiques funèbres an ethereal quality to contrast the faster, more aggressive black metal. The sound is fine, but the songs are generic and leave little lasting impression. The guys in Nazrak can play and have a clear vision of how they want to sound, now they just need to come up with some songs that match their vision.
