JOURS PÂLES “Eclosion”

(Les Acteurs de l’Ombre Productions)

Battle Helm Rating

You can say that you like black metal and yet not say what black metal you like. Back in the day it was a lot easier to like metal. You either liked heavy metal or you liked extreme metal. Nowadays you really have to get down to sub-genres to describe what kind of metal you like. So to say that I like black metal is to say nothing really. But I do like black metal, every kind of black metal. From Necro to blackgaze to everything else. JOURS PÂLES play a melancholic form of black metal that I liked from the very first note. I don’t know why but there is something extra about a band that sings in French and are melancholic. I just die every time I hear stuff like that. If you haven’t understood by now I do really like what I hear on this album. I don’t really know how to describe it but I guess a somewhat reference could be Sweden’s Shining, at least in spirit. Maybe even Lifelover to an extent. This is angst driven existential black metal. Anders Ekdahl
