Step in for some French avant-garde black metal! Probably you never heard about the French band Edermerion from Lille but the band has existed in ten year and have released to EP`s, and now the first full-length finally has arrived. Ambri Gris. The title track Ambre Gris has tremolo riffs and blasting drums and the bass is a very important and present part of the musical textures.
The album Amber Gris is filled with melancholic black metal and is an album with a underlying macabre humor. It`s a massive and very intense album with much going on and an appealing nervous edge and even with some hints of doom and post metal. Sometimes the black metal insanity Ambre Gris is suddenly transformed into some beautiful and glimmering passage in nice Edremerion tradition. The fact that something unexpected can happen has always fascinated me, and there is Edremerion very skilled. When something exciting and well played suddenly could happens next this mostly exciting for me.
