Boomkat Product Review:
Primal Black Metal power from multifarious Montréal survivor Pierre-Marc Tremblay a.k.a. Akitsa (also Âmes Sanglantes, Contrepoison, Outre-Tombe). Longtime supporters, Hospital Productions, present his fifth album; a nine-song force of nature fusing elements of industrial noise and leaden synth atmospheres with punkish outbursts and possessed lyrics incanted in his native Québécois French. It's emotional, spanning a spectrum of feelings from ecstasy to misanthropy, galvanising piloerect effect with the towering silhouette of 'Dévoilé' alongside the razing, blank-eyed swagger of 'Le feu de l'abîme' and 'Naufrage contemporain', to the nuclear winter scapes of 'Le flots de l'enfer', whilst taking in Ghedalia Tazartes-like displays of operatic vocal prowess in the title track, and three chord punk slaughter in 'Chimères', finally laying waste with the raging blizzard of 'Noire bête allée'. Lock the doors before you play with this beast.
