Paysages polaires

Rated 4/5 (80%) (5 Votes)

With Paysages polaires (polar landscapes), Cantique Lépreux present a mostly slow-paced black metal and create a very sombre and depressing, desolate atmosphere that fits the album title like a glove. The vocals are the expected black metal rasps, with the songs sung in French. Things almost get doomy at times without quite getting there, but doomsters who don't mind things blackened might find something to like here. Some of the songs are actually pretty fast, though not insanely so, but the aforementioned atmosphere remains a constant. I find the album a little monotone, with nothing really standing out, and normally that would be a handicap, but here I find that's just the right formula to convey the glacial atmosphere. Well done.
