Stéphane Gallay Musicalement, Au champ des morts fait très fort. Là encore, le terme “intensité” s’applique. Les compositions sont denses, torturées, saturées, mais sans jamais perdre en lisibilité et en mélodie. Oui, on peut faire du black-metal mélodique; ce n’est pas le premier album du genre que je chronique, c’est juste une preuve supplémentaire. (Chroniqué sur Favorite track: Le Sang, La Mort, La Chute.

Dans La Joie 10:03


The striking first full-length from AU CHAMP DES MORTS is a richly emotive, multi-headed manifestation of finest contemporary Black Metal song-craft.

Texturally and musically diverse, this sterling album melds the prime orchestration of predecessors ANOREXIA NERVOSA with an abundant core of atmospheric influences including black-gaze, post-rock, cold wave and post-black metal.

Impassioned vocals from guitarist Stephan Bayle and bassist Cecile G are haunted by the ghosts of internal and external wars, bringing howls of dismay, chants of uprising and clean-sung litanies of personal fragility amidst corroding heritage.

Strident themes alluding to the peopled triumphalism of folk song are wrung for maximum poignancy in the face of accelerating extinction, impossible crises and imminent collapse.

Beautifully produced and mixed at Drudenhaus Studio (ANOREXIA NERVOSA, ALCEST), iridescent soundscapes and shimmering effects-laden guitars transition seamlessly into masterly blast command and powerfully affecting chord-work.

A deeply personal, vital record, Dans la Joie is an interweaving of dualities: transience and temporality, fury and fragility, aging and aesthetics, depression and delirium, dreams and dust.

Recorded in June 2016 at Drudenhaus Studio by Benoit Roux
Mixed at Under The Sign Studio by Stefan Bayle in August 2016
