Well, this is a short and sweet EP! Csejthe are from my own land, which is quite nice as such, since we, unfortunately, don't get many promos from Canada, even less from Quebec.

This quartet has come up with a twenty minutes, four-tracks EP called Transcendance. I was pleasantly surprised by the take those musicians had over the black metal arts. Their sound is somewhat raw, but done with good taste, so we don't lose the subtleties for rawness sake. Another interesting fact about Csejthe resides in the fact that their pace is mostly moderate without ever venturing into the hyper blasting time, a definite plus. Just to make things even better, these musicians have injected a good dose of melody and harmonies into their songwriting. The result can only be pleasant to listen to. Besides the cold guitar work, arpeggios and tremolo picking leads, I really enjoyed the ghostly (clean and raps) vocals. A touch of melancholy here and there just increases the positive aspects of their work. I believe some ambient keyboards were also used. On the closing track, piano parts are definitely present to accompany the haunted female and male back vocals. My overall favorite composition is "Déréliction", for all the good points mentioned and an epic vibe.

It is cool to hear something pleasant from our my land and I can only encourage them to keep up the good musical work.
