Grand Œuvre, which could be translated both by the Great Work or the Masterpiece. A baptism above the font of arrogance or self-mockery for Triste Terre’s first album? Neither. An atmospheric black metal resonating from classical echoes of Bach’s darkest hours. After perfecting its style with 3 Eps, this band from Lyon, France doesn’t fear from aiming high with hieratic songs built like cathedrals of noble darkness. Inside vibratos of excruciating clearness and vast roarings worthy of a prophet shatter concepts and liturgies,always aspiring to higher spheres. Triste Terre is making there an occult and glorious offering.
