VI - De Praestigiis Angelorum (CD Review)

01.Et in pulverem mortis deduxisti me
02.Par le jugement causé par ses poisons
03.La terre ne cessera de se consumer
04.Regarde tes cadavres car il ne te permettra pas qu'on les enterre
05.Une place parmi les morts
06.Voilà l'homme qui ne te prenait pas comme Seigneur
07.Il est trop tard pour rendre gloire.Ainsi la lumière sera changée en ombre de la mort
08.Plus aucun membre ne sera rendu.

VI is a French black metal band formed in 2007.
Made of current and ex-members of Aosoth and Antaeus. Their debut full-length album, "De Praestgiis Angelorum", bestirs within the characteristic black metal niche developed by the said bands, with the addition of expanded guitar work, choirs and subtle sample parts. VI describes their music as "extreme, devoted black metal with illuminated chaos".

So stupid long song titles and just another black metal performance "By numbers", i fail to see where the "Subtle sample parts & Choirs" are.
This really is average stuff, does nothing special, yes it has the riffs, drums and vocals in the right place. It's well produced and the singing is typical of the genre's earlier days. But this adds nothing new, i am not aware of their other bands and if they sound the same as this, then you have to wonder why they have bothered with this.

Rating 5/10
For fans of: Deathspell Omega, Funeral Mist, Aosoth, Ascension
