NEIGE MORTE (AURORA BOREALIS)
Neige Morte are an obscure entity from Lyon, France, creating an icy and oppressive hypothermic musical blast.
Ponderous and bizarre passages of atmospheric sound crack give way plunging the listener into frozen riffs as they are carried off by the post-Black Metal current tearing through the heart of Neige Morte.
The cruel and nihilistic aesthetic chimes with much of the output of the French underground scene as does the experimental edge found in the five tracks served on this debut platter.
Difficult to categorise neatly, Neige Morte are merely interested in engulfing the listener in the slow embrace of frozen death.
The album is presented as a jewel case CD with monochromatic and obscure artwork deigned by the band.
A limited edition vinyl edition will follow shortly. For Fans Of: Overmars, Socrates, Gnaw.
