Enoid - Exilé Aux Confins Des Tourments (2016, Satanath Records / Black Plague Records)
The Swiss Black Metal one man band Enoid is celebrating its 20th anniversary with the release of Exilé Aux Confins Des Tourments. Singing in French their depressive and suicidal Black Metal, Bornyhake is taking a path that can’t left you hoping for happiness or joy. There is not one moment of positiveness and the claustrophobic music makes it a highly effective record in the genre.
Pretty much like some more extreme bands like NSBM bands, which I’m sure Enoid is not, I do not agree with their lyrical choices but I can enjoy the music and the sheer talent of the musicianship. So overall, Exilé Aux Confins Des Tourments is a captivating piece of fast and aggressive Black Metal. It is an offering that is Black Metal in its purest form, not reinventing the genre but delivering a solid entry in it.
