Premiers pas des musiciens sur cet entre Jeu (eJ) de deux pièces musicales, mais quels pas, directement "Au Champs Des Morts" alors que "Le jour se lève". Fascinante progression d'un état intérieur confus et bouillonnant à travers l'expression de l'authenticité révélée dans des sonorités mortifères tempétueuses et mêmes explosives. Puissent-ils trouver la rédemption dans cette fusion de sentiments intérieurs opposés...
Favorite track: Le Sang, La Mort, La Chute.
For a band on their first EP, AU CHAMP DES MORTS show incredible maturity and precious know-how - brilliantly combining diverse influences from Old School and Post Black Metal to early Hard Rock and Cold Wave.
The two songs proudly presented here are, before all else, deeply intense on an emotional plane. The compositions skilfully combine sublime and majestically aggressive riffing with a torrent of heartbreakingly poignant melodies, full of melancholy. The band’s magisterial grasp of dynamic song-writing effortlessly transports the listener from frenetic rage to serene meditation.
"Le Jour Se Lève" is an amazing first realisation, a beyond-promising start by a truly gifted band: the French Black Metal scene has been a rich pool of pure talent for many years and there's no doubt AU CHAMP DES MORTS will rise to become one of the most important.

This album is a Killer. For me, it was love at first sight. It's sad that the band wound up in a rediculous drama. The other album is not good at all, from start to finish, it's just screaming without direction because black metal formula said so. So i was sceptical and wanted to know why. Then i read about the band and found out that the sequel to this album is elsewhere to find, so i bought that one too. The music is monumental and the mind behind the music had left the band. 90sWasAwful
