WENDESS ”MMXXIII”

WENDESS
”MMXXIII”
(Archaic Sound)

Battle Helm Rating

This was originally released digitally in 2016, then rereleased on limited CDr the third album since 2009 by Quebecian WENDESS now gets a proper release on physical format. Canadian black metal and especially the one coming from the Quebec (Métal Noir Québécois) has a very distinct sound with a whole host of bands that have made themselves a name internationally. WENDESS are no exception. They seem to incorporate a whole host of different influences in the realm of black metal making it a very interesting listening. To my ears the base for the Quebec black metal is 90s Norwegian black metal. To that the bands have added their own distinct ingredients making it a sound of their own. In a way this is like nothing I have heard before. The mix of influences can at times be hard to get but once I had adjusted my ears this fell on good earth with me. A really cool album that deserves a proper release. Anders Ekdahl
