You can tell this is a French band just listening to it. Véhémence are a throwback to the glory days of the French Black Metal scene, when there was just this inventive, epic, melodic sound running through a lot of bands like a thread of divine inspiration. I hear a lot of those kinds of bands in this—Belenos, Himminbjorg, Aes Dana—all bands that combined an epic atmosphere and a kind of pagan sound without being full-on folk bands, all of it laid down with songwriting that is thick with twists and turns and surprises to keep things interesting. This is just a really good album, and if you like real Black Metal then you shouldn't miss it.
