BAND TENTATION/IRON SLAUGHT
ALBUM -665- LES HORDES METALLIQUES
LABELS IMPIOUS DESECRATION/FIN DU MONDE
OUR RATING 85/100
After the first EP, well received on our pages, now it's time for new songs by French Traditional HM band TENTATION, this time in partnership with their mates IRON SLAUGHT.
TENTATION are surely one of best example of what is now NWOTHM scene in the world; something alive and kickin', proud of their roots but looking to the future!
They are able to mix speed with epic moments, breaks with sudden changes of time as well natty solos on the path of masters as SORTILEGE.
After ILLUSION, JUGE SANGLANT and SOUVIENS TOI, we can find a little gem as LES ANGES DE BALTHAZAR, cover of amazing PONCE PILATE (go finding the vinyl of LES ENFANTS DU CIMETIERE, if you don't remind nothin' about them) and the bonus track SHAMAN, well known thanks to the previous video-clip.
The second slice of this work is reserved to IRON SLAUGHT; more direct and not less effective.
You can see it, after the instrumental intro KNIGHTS ARRIVAL, through great tunes as CODE OF STEEL and BIGORRA.
A WELL DONE JOB, PERFECT FOR ALL TRADITIONAL HM FANS! The scene is absolutely alive and full of energy!
