With their full-length debut, America's Bosse-De-Nage present us with some dark, minimalist Black Metal, full of hypnotic riffs, indecipherable screams of anguish, repetitive chord sequences, and a whole load of pointless (yet somehow creepy) portions of feedback. On some tracks, the quartet sound more like Cult Of Luna than anyone else, whereas when they kick up the pace with blast beats and stinging tremolos they have an early Burzum feel (even the vocals have the demented touch of Grishnackh). The production is an offensive buzz, and the overall quality of this album is pretty low, yet it somehow works, though not on astounding levels.

Perhaps with more concentration on creating atmosphere instead of long periods of woe, Bosse-De-Nage would prosper in the Black Metal scene. For now, they remain a curious but futile underground entity.
