Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.

One of the creepiest things I've possibly ever heard!
When I think of black metal, I think of a sound that elicits a dark, cold atmosphere that is bleak, stark and unfriendly. The guitars sound like a swarm of angry bees and the vocals are venomous and emotive. What Les Chants Du Hasard has created with this album is none of the above but is an attempt by the lone creative force behind the project to redefine black metal. What you get on this release is one of the creepiest things I've possibly heard in my entire time of listening to metal. This effort is mainly an orchestral score with evil Benedictine monk chants and some pretty sinister black metal vocals sprinkled in throughout. There are no guitars, no drums or bass at all on this album and I didn't find myself missing them. For many people, the complete absence of guitars, drums, bass and vocals for the most part might turn them away from this album. Passing over it because it's lacking those things would be an error of epic proportions. The quality of the orchestral pieces combined with the creepy chanting and sinister vocals really delivers a very striking package and take on black metal that I guarantee you will not find anywhere else. This is one of the most intriguing releases I've heard this year and because it's so different, it makes it really enjoyable and the atmosphere alone is worth the listen. If you're looking for something super creepy and very different, then this is definitely the release for you.
