Aäkon Këëtrëh - Dans La Forêt (1996)

Probably the most significant and interesting element of the LLN (Les Légions Noires) movement comes from Lord Aäkon Këëtrëh.

With the use of just the guitar and a single song that incorporates some chanting and screams this demo has a very minimalist overall sound, creating a feeling of despair and depression much more so than 90% of the self proclaimed DSBM bands out there.

The album consists of 8 songs and clocks in at just over the 20 minute mark, in fact this album is more like a single piece of music that has been split into eight singular tracks. What Aäkon Këëtrëh has created is not an album that will be liked by many and loved by less, yet for those who can, a great piece of dark and dreary ambient awaits.
