Le temps peste

Rated 3.75/5 (75%) (4 Votes)

After reviewing the La part du diable EP, I realized I had this, Maudiir's debut album, in my queue as well. The album is only a couple of minutes longer than the EP. It's the same brand of melodic blackened thrash as on the EP, though I find the EP showed some improvement in the songwriting as well as the vocals. That's not to say this album isn't any good. It's actually quite catchy, with some galloping riffs and drums that tend to get the foot tapping and the head bobbing. Couple that with a good sense for melody and you end up with music that tends to stick in your head almost instantly. The vocals here are a little more screechy than on the EP and I find he found the right recipe on La part du diable. Here I found them sometimes a little bit annoying, though not to the point of being intolerable. As I said in the EP review, Maudiir have a different take on blackened thrash with a good knack for melody and is worth checking out if you're looking for something a little different.
