4 stars Wow, and i mean wow, i cant say enough good things about this album, this is the forth release by this French Avant - Black metal band and its a cracker. At just over 45 minutes its like a Labyrinth of twists and turns, tunnels and allyways and theres only 6 songs on it. The use of atmosphere is utterly brilliant as well one minute being verry mellow or even silent then slowly rising before erupting into a flurry of guitar drums and atmospherics, the vocalist is fantastic too using many different styles from full on black metal growling to almost whispered vocals, i cant really describe the album with words as its has to be heard form start to finnish to really understand, but all i can say is very underlooked band and just a fantastic release. The production is class as you would guess very dark and atmospheric and when its heavy its very heavy almost grindcore sounding at points, musicmanship is also second to none, with some killer technical riffs and sweet bass lines throughout, some awsome drumming and fantastic vocals really round this relase off nicely;

Obombration ? 8/10 The Shrine of Mad Laughter ? 10/10 Bread of Bitterness ? 8/10 The Repellent Scars of Abandon and Election ? 10/10 A Chore for the Lost ? 9/10 Obombration ? 8/10

My Conclusion? a very very good release by this fantastic band and a great add to the collection.
