Six years have gone by already since Lys Noir, and at last Monarque breaks the silence. While the work on his new full-length continues, Jusqu’à la Mort offers a taste of things to come, and proves beyond any doubt that the sovereign of Québec Black Metal has lost none of his luster. As soon as the first notes hit, this is unmistakably Monarque, soaring to new levels of his very own brooding, emotional breed of Black Metal. A Grand return…
Founded by members and ex-members of Morgue and Outre-Tombe, Trépas is one of the more recent Black Metal outfits emerging from Québec. The band journeys between harsher moments and more atmospheric passages, all complimented by acoustic guitars and just a dash of doomish sensibility, creating a sound that is their very own in the process. A newcomer that is sure to delight fans of the more brooding and melancholic side that scene has been known for!
Alongside Moribond’s Serment, we will also launch the first album of a new project from another veteran of the Québec scène, namely Exu from Hak-ed Damm. With Alpha Ursae Minoris, Exu lays the foundation of a more melancholic and contemplative breed of Black Metal, a bit closer to what is typically done in Québec, but still very much based on riffs and tempo changes. A first album that fans of melodic and powerful Black Metal will definitely not want to miss!
Sargeist is a Finnish black metal band formed in 1999. Originally created as a solo project by Shatraug of the Finnish black metal act Horna. Both musically and lyrically, Sargeist stays close to the roots of Scandinavian "old school" black metal. Lyrical subjects thus often deal with Satanism and anti-Christian blasphemy, as well as darkness, depression, misanthropy and hate. The band's name combines the two German words, "sarg" (coffin) and "geist" (spirit, ghost), and derives from the song "The Old Coffin Spirit" by the black metal band Rotting Christ. The CDs included are - Satanic Black Devotion (2003), In Ruin And Despair (Split with "Horned ALmighty", 2004), Tyranny Returns (2001), Disciple Of The Heinous Path (2005), Let The Devil In (2010). This release makes a perfect addition for any diehard fan, or as an introduction to any newcomers recently discovering these often overlooked black metal gems.

Simply titled but by no means simple in construction nor execution, Djinn builds upon the increasingly ambitious songwriting of its no-less-considerable predecessor, but pushes their dazzling artistry into nearly Technicolor landscapes of the Beyond. Upon the first opening notes, this boundless artistry is felt: big, rolling rhythms reminiscent of post-punk, tantalizingly setting the stage for the splendorous expanses to follow. There's a certain magick at play here, no doubt bolstered by the band's rhythm section of Josiah Babcock (who puts in his final performance here) and new bassist Nate Verschoor, erstwhile mainman of Veiled; this throttling-yet-deft foundation both leads and plays acute counterpoint to the spiraling, windswept riffing of founders Jake Superchi (also vocals) and James Sloan, their guitar work transcending the poignancy of prior works. And indeed, Djinn's generous six-song/hour-long runtime no doubt allows the listener the ultimate freedom to roam within Uada's ever-unique world, spanning both smothering speed and deliriously dream-like states, Very Metal urgency and textural exploration alike - put simply, the band at the height of their creative powers. Djiin is truly its own realm of experience.
"Djinn, first inhabitors of this world, the smokeless fire and those we call upon our enemies, has gifted us a 60-minute descent into the modern-day possessions of our existence and demise," state the band, "A duality that can only be known as our third wish."
