La croix de sang

Rated 4.25/5 (85%) (4 Votes)

For those who have seen French black metal go into a bit of a slump for a few years—before coming back more or less recently—Drastus will be a welcome sight. La croix de sang is a wall-to-wall sonic onslaught of dark, malevolent black metal that is certainly not without reminding of what a plethora of French black metal bands did at the turn of the century. There isn’t much room to catch your breath with this one with busy drums and somewhat monotonous yet hypnotic guitar work and raspy vocals that just get drowned into the mix—in a good way. This would make a nice soundtrack to the upcoming end of times.
