Shub-Niggurath [France] - Les morts vont vite (1986)



This ain't the Mexican death metal band, but an actually quite awesome Avant-Prog band from France. This album is all kinds of amazing, featuring tons of strange quasi-melodies, unearthly chanting vocals and some great percussive sections. It has a shitload of atmosphere, the demented, Obscura-esque kind atmosphere that gives the album a strangely alluring aspect. Highly recommended for progheads, but it's also a great transition record (at least for me it was).

Megaupload (sorry for the lix.in, not my idea)


Oh, and thanks to Adam (AGreenman) for giving me the rec ;)

  2. Holy shit... This is beyond all borders of what I understood (til now) as music... This is in fact the exact transformation of Lovecraft's writings into modern music sounds... Horror!!
