I can only say one thing; Wow. French screamo at it’s best. What you can complain on is that they have a pretty thin guitarsound, and that is perhaps why their overall sound feels a bit lame on some parts, but other than that, Isaïah got it all. This is heavy, beautiful, slow, increadibly emotionally loaded and I can only wish that I understood french, I think that would’ve contributed really much to the entirety. They have a good feeling for structure in their songs too. I myself think that the bass sound is awfully beautiful, but sadly it does not sound very “bassy”. This could also be a reason for their thin sound on some parts. The ending song “Enfants de l’apathie” is a perfect ending, the ending part consists of a french monologue blended with distant and ambientlike guitarsounds, which rounds up this record in a splendid way.
