Brume d’Automne (Canada): Brume d’Automne (Sepulchral Productions)
Raw, noisy and chaotic black metal, with a technical/progressive edge. In particular, the combination of the good, distinctive guitar work and the howling/screaming vocals. The songs sound very well written and have a lot to offer for the listener to experience.
However, the sound quality is too poor and hinders the songs greatly. I went back and compared this 2012 album with the debut album from 2005 “Fiers et Victorieux” and the quality on the old album is better, specifically the drums. On the 2012 album the drums sound like pots and pans and cans being banged on.
Investigate only if a really garage sound quality is no problem. www.facebook.com/BrumeDAutomne
Cellgraft (U.S.): Cellgraft LP
17 songs in 12 minutes results in short bursts of blasting speed. They carry on screaming and growling and quickly move on to the next exercise in musical nihilism and absurdity taken to the limits. Play this battering ram of an album and get the grindcore on. The sound quality is pretty good and it sounds ridiculous, just like this was meant to be. Hooray for grindcore! cellgraft.bandcamp.com/album/cellgraft-lp
