MONARQUE - Lys Noir, LP
Finally available on black vinyl for the first time. Gatefold sleeve with thick insert and black wax.
Featuring new artwork, illustrations courtesy of Chadwick St-John / Inkshadows with layout from I.K. | House of Inkantation. Published by Eisenwald (EU).
Monarque's third full-length album and without a doubt the most accomplished to date. Always remaining in the occult and classic side of Black Metal, while paying homage to the early symphonic movement here and there, the band also infuses its very distinctive epic and melancholic side that has earned it many fans worldwide. Featuring a solid cover of Québec Black Metal forerunners Frozen Shadows’ “Au Seuil des Ténèbres”, Lys Noir will haunt those who venture into its bleak universe.
