L’HOMME ABSURDE ”Sleepkless”

(Soundage Productions)

Battle Helm Rating

I don’t know where all these post this or post that bands are coming from but my reluctant approach to it all has changed into an accepting one instead. Because most of the stuff that is labelled post is basically just the usual stuff with a twist. Take L’Homme Absurde for instance. This Russian band is basically a black metal band that has added influences from other styles to make it their own. And it all works. This is a strong album full of melancholia and despair. The screamy, almost hardcorish vocals add to the feel of resignation. In a way this is not far from being an atmospheric metal album. So yes, I have totally embraced this whole post this or that thing. Anders Ekdahl
