Vous Autres - Sel De Pierre

The French post-black metal scene is truly impressive right now and there's a ton of fascinating stuff going on within the scene that seems to continually be broadening the sound and showcasing new directions that it can take. The latest offering in this vein is from Season of Mist signees Vous Autres. Their new record, Sel De Pierre is masterful. It sees the band crafting some emotionally powerful post black metal that seemingly can't help but to capture the imagination and carry you off on a journey you won't soon forget. It's that good. 

What really shines here is the layers upon layers of production. This is of course oftentimes a must in the post-black metal genre. The synth padding that really accentuates a track like 'Vesuve' is magical and is counterbalance by an utterly crushing rhythm section. The balance between dark and light here is truly impressive. It means that these songs can really give a sort of panoramic view of the artists vision. You find yourself journeying between distinct and beautiful musical landscapes. It's the sort of transcendent and simple poetry that keeps me coming back to the genre and Vous Autres are able to perfectly execute upon it. 

Sel De Pierre is a potent offering. It's impressive to hear something so fully formed coming out barely a year after the bands last release. This is the sort of elegant execution that I hope to see more of in the genre and the way the record is able to ebb and flow makes the entire thing infinitely replayable. Meanwhile distinct elements like the use of what sounds like an 808 drum on Ecueil really are head turners. A lot of thought clearly went into this and the more time you spend unpacking the secrets within the more you are justly rewarded. This is a record that you're going to get lost in - so take the time to turn it up, sit back and enjoy the madness.

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
