Ossuaire are a band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada that has had music reviewed before in this zine and on this recording plays an anti Christian form of black metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Demiers Chants" which will be released in October by Spulchral Productions.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album while most of the tracks are very long and epic in length. During the faster sections of the songs a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the music more of a raw feeling and the vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams.
All of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. The music also adds in a good amount of 90's influences as well as the riffs also utilizing some melodies on later tracks and as the album progresses a brief instrumental which also introduces classical guitars and synths onto the recording before returning back to a heavier direction, spoken word parts are also used briefly on the closing track.
On this recording Ossuaire plays more of a raw, traditional and old school style of black metal. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in French and cover the downfall of Christianity.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Ossuaire and if you are a fan of anti Christian black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Pestilence rampante" and "L'Oeil-Sang". 8 out of 10.
