Hear Shezmu’s ‘À Travers Les Lambeaux’ ahead of its release
Montréal doom infused black/death trio Shezmu is previewing their debut full-length, À Travers Les Lambeaux, in its entirety at Decibel Magazine. The album releases July 29th via French label Krucyator Productions.
“The band took a different approach to the writing of this album, resulting in some of Comte Bergaby’s most personal lyrics to date. While still using visions of ancient history as the lyrical basis, the songs explore themes of rage, sorrow, and madness. The band creates a triangulum between these emotions, all symptoms of profound anguish. The anger can be well heard throughout the tracklist — enraged blast beats, fast tremolo picking, and low-end guttural vocals. The sadness manifests with clean, desperate yelling on some tracks such as ‘Lex Talionis.’ Finally, madness arises. The fever continues to heat as you listen to the record until it reaches its boiling point, which is portrayed as the triumph of darkness over sanity.”
