4 stars Wow, what an album. I've really never listened to any chamber music, so this kind of thing came as a real shock to me. THe closest comparison I can draw in the rock world is GYBE, because it is long, dense, dark, and requires many listens to fully understand. However, it is not political at all, instead touching on some dark inner aspect of human feeling. Also, the overall product is fuller and contains less "down-time"- all the sounds, long though they may be, combine and are essential to the mood developed in the songs. And what a mood it is. If you want words, just pull up and search "morose". The way it is created is absolutely brilliant- instruments all combine together in darkness and dissonance. The growling in La Faulx is tasteful and well-done, adding an extra element of anger to the music. In short, Heresie is a tense, cloudy piece of art that rewards the patience of a dedicated listener with well-created if often depressing soundscapes. Excellently done, four stars. Worth looking into for any fan of dark atmospheric music.
