EXILE (2015)
Hace ya tres años que la banda editó su debut, por aquel entonces la irrupción en la escena de Regarde Les Hommes Tomber (2013) sorprendió y gustó, encajando perfectamente dentro de la emergente escena del black mezclado con otros estilo, a saber en su caso mucho de post metal y de sludge. Han pasado los años y los galos regresan con "Exile" un trabajo que vuelve a tener una innegable calidad al igual que su antecesor pero que cuyo principal defecto es que no sorprende como antaño. Otra vez vuelven a conformar un trabajo de siete temas en donde el peso en su música del sludge se ha hecho más presente, ganando protagonismo en unas composiciones rebosantes de contundencia y profesionalidad. Los temas son en líneas generales directos y brutales, construidos sobre la agresividad de voces y la contundencia a los parches de R.R., todo un seguro a lo largo del álbum. Por otra parte las capas de guitarra consiguen una sensación de caos y violencia en su música. Pero sobre todo tenemos que destacar el estado de ánimo que consigue transmitir su música gracias sobre todo a la dualidad de las composiciones que enfrentan elementos agresivos y violentos con otros más melancólicos e intimistas, recreados a la perfección a lo largo de todas y cada una de las composiciones. "Exile" es un trabajo que por momentos roza la perfección en algunos aspectos, pero sobre todo supone la madurez compositiva y el adentrase en terrenos más black. (7,9).

1. L'Exil 03:20  instrumental
2. A Sheep Among the Wolves 07:17
 A life of love and obedience
Where the true faith has replaced reason
A spiritual den 
(A religious rain of sadness and moan)

My Father
My Lord
My King
And my God

I devoutly followed
I piously lived
I feel like I dwell in Hell
Just feel like I dwell in Hell

Distress smashed on walls
Crying on the altar
A sheep among the wolves

Bleeding, dazed, yet offered
A bloody knee for a bloody faith

I beg for your mercy
I beg for salvation and redemption

My flesh, my blood are gone
I pray in vain the skies

Drowned in the flood of evils
Merciless for me, pitiless for me
I endure my life, the way I believe
I've lost, I've coughed, I've suffered

My flesh, my blood are gone
I grieve my people, alone
My flesh, my blood are gone
I give my word, my soul

I'm tempted to flee
The vermilion angel
I'm tempted to follow
The vermilion angel

My soul is barely gone
I feel like I dwell in Hell
All the evils belong
To the vermilion angel

The chasm of rest
Of death and silence
Has swallowed my body

Death and silence

The pain, the evils and sorrow
Gone for eternity
A never-ending fall
The quietest trek of existence

(I gaze at the silent sky
This place where only dwells the moon)
3. Embrace the Flames 04:56
 When the crows started to gather 
And the night has come forever 
The poisonous tongue whistled a heartwarming lullaby 

The voice among the void 
The rank breeze of salvation 
The twisted branches sang this sinister lullaby 

Stand and start your ascension 
You are not alone anymore 

The wanderer, exiled for the rest of your existence 
Fear the celestial light 
Embrace, embrace the black flames 
Embrace, embrace the black flames 

O son of Adam, be the first man to oppose your fathers 
Leave your soul, enter the darkness 
You are not alone anymore 
Follow me and embrace the world you belong to 

Follow me and embrace the world you belong to 
Follow me and you will never be alone anymore
4. They Came... 02:06  instrumental
5. ...to Take Us 07:16  
A feasting town illuminates the smoky skies above
The sleepless crowd celebrates the life and death of all
The endless flow of blood and wine

Waters sullied the earth of lust and anger
Gluttony corrodes the weakest souls

The hymn of debauchery
The song of the great misery

Can't you see these sins and horror
Can't you feel this unnatural behavior
Can’t you hear the cry of Sodom

Who are these strangers who loomed out of the dark
They must return from where they came
This city is a noble one
See this halo, unnaturally bright

They came to take us
They came to kill us

Release them from this den
So they can hear the cry of Sodom

The hymn of debauchery
The song of the great misery
6. Thou Shall Lie Down 06:16
  Sweet and sour
Where all the weak wander
A place of torture
A place of liars

O Lord and Father
Forever after
O Lord and Father
You'll be a sinner

Follow the lead
Whistled the wind
Heavenly sneaking
Slyly preaching

This place is Heaven
This place we call Eden
A land of fairness
A land of blindness

O Father
Forever after
O Father
You'll be a sinner

(I won't surrender
To a foul, to his words
Half god half coward)

I claim and order
This king to behold
The reign of a mother
This curse would be told
I'll never suffer
Anytime, anymore
I'll never suffer anymore

The stance of such a creature
Has no matter for the weaver
I disown you
I disown you, evil daughter

Thou shall lie down
Thou shall crumble
Thou shall lie down
Thou shall submit yourself

I'll set this land on fire
Where Abel lies, murdered
I'll set the earth on fire
Where all the weak wander

(I'll set Eden on fire
To purge this place of liars
I'll set the world on fire
To gaze at the flames of anger)
7. The Incandescent March 11:12
This reign must end right now How can we still stare at the stars How can we listen to the sun My friends, my men, till the end Our luminous gladius swords will be our words The cry of the broken wings The crack of the burning skins To the ones who were once slaves Thou shall kill them and dig their graves I swear I'll rise again Lucifer in this very war The parade of the dancing flames The revenge of the fallen star I swear I'll rise again Lucifer in this very war The parade of the dancing flames The laughable dimension of such a tragedy The miserable scum that erodes the rock of destiny (These woods will burn from a blaze Which lives in the heart of a thousand eyes) We'll tread upon this mountain From this place we call Inferno The primitive philosophy of a tyrannic group of cowards Will never rule on this pure and fragile place we call earth The time of slavery must end right now This time of tyranny must be the last We will crush the weaver, he will taste the bitter And on this unreachable fortress we call Heaven He will taste the anger of the gods we are We will sit on this throne And the fallen god, the exiled one Will rest in a place we call Inferno We will sit on this throne
