Double-checking my information on this band at Metal Archives, I noticed a recent change in line-up in Lantlôs. Apparently the famous Neige has joined, replacing Alboîn on vocals. Might prove interesting, especially since the band covers the same kind of ground as Amesoeurs does. On this record, though, it's still Alboîn and we don't have to feel sorry about that, either. His vocals are fucking grim as well, and filled with some sense of authority that Neige doesn't have. But maybe you're also curious about the music behind the voice. It's melancholic black metal that is modern in sound but not futuristic. Indeed it borrows from the French band's approach to their blackest moments, but it has less foreign influences and keeps more to genre conventions. At the same time it is more focused and eerie, so it's no good calling this a clone, either. Actually, Lantlôs could grow out to be the band to take up where Amesoeurs left off, and fly the flag for "urban black metal".
