Mortifera - Vastiia Tenebrd Mortifera

Band/artist - Mortifera
Genre(s) - Black metal
Origin - France
Album - Vastiia Tenebrd Mortifera
Year of release - 2004

Melancholic black metal springing from a union of French black metal celebrities Noktu (Celestia, ex-Peste Noire) and Neige (Alcest, Amesoeurs...). So how could it not have been a gem? Especially a song like Ciel Brouillé (hm, I don't know how to translate "brouillé" in this context), clearly the "Neige-est" song on the album, wallows in ecstatic misery. Strange how most Celestia material still doesn't manage to move me and this release can, while the similarities are obvious. Oh well.
