FORTERESSE “Crépuscule d’Octobre”

“Crépuscule d’Octobre”
(Sepulchral Productions)
I’ve only heard good things about the Quebecois black metal scene but I haven’t heard anything from it. Until now that is. Listening to Forteresse I get the same feeling I got hearing Norwegian black metal the first time. There is something revelatory to the music that brings out emotional memories of vast landscapes and snow-clad mountains. Something we don’t get in our urban concrete jungles. I don’t know if there is something special in the Quebec water but if black metal from that region all sound like this then I’d better put on my explorers hat and start digging. I like the primitive and very basic feel of “Crépuscule d’Octobre”. It reminds me of early Burzum albums. I like that feeling. This one I’ll keep for a long time. Anders Ekdahl
