Label: Les Acteurs de l´Ombre Productions – AO-058
Format: Digipack CD
Released: 19 May 2017
Style: Post black metal
Music of Au-Dessus is a combination of black metal with lots of ‘post’ elements and some occasional psychedelic sections. The tracks are numbered VI to XII as a continuation from their previous EP, and with a running time of around 45-minutes. Au-Dessus is a master of balancing between slow, progressive, even unsettling segments coupled with their ferocious, crushing counterparts. As challenging as it may sound, they came up with fascinating material that, once it grabs listener and sinks his teeth in. Au-Dessus delivered an album that keeps giving every time I play it. It’s a fantastic album with tremendous atmosphere offered with such skill and passion that it should bump those guys up to the front of the charts easily; it is surely not something you want to miss. Recommended for fans of Outre, Almyrkvi, Sólstafir, Blut Aus Nord, Darkspace, Spire, The Ruins Of Beverast.
