Re-release of the GRIMOIRE debut album, with newly arranged design holding the original elements of the initial first press with layout by John Haughm (Pillorian, ex-Agalloch) Originally release by Morbid Winter Records in July 2011 on CD, now for the first time on vinyl.
On "La Lumière Des Cendres" Grimoire takes the listener on its voyage of epic sorcery from shores unknown; the perfect soundtrack for the darkest of nights.
Back in 2010, 4 years before the acclaimed "L'aorasie des spectres rêveurs" EP, mastermind & multi-instrumentalist Fiel had already succeeded with this wealth of excellent emotive melodies and haunting vocals. With its unfolding and unique style of saturated mid-tempo sounds, multiple guitar layers, and immense keyboards, this shattering yet reviving album added another high note to the already well esteemed and respected Quebec Black Metal movement.
While the tracks show clear interwoven similarities in atmosphere, each song retains its own character; a beautiful and convincing journey that was just about to begin.A must listen for anyone who appreciates original, creative atmospheric black metal.
