about

Inspired by the frost-bitten regions of Québec, the title of the second full-length directly translates to “polar landscapes,” exploring a recurring theme of the icy wilderness which makes up the majority of the band’s homeland.

Musically, 'Paysages polaires' continues the nostalgic path laid out with the frosty, archaic tunes from the debut album as the record carves itself into another 45-minutes of darkness, misery, and gloom. Cold black metal for the ages, Paysages polaires’ stirring anthems – with a sharper and more direct songwriting approach – lead the way throughout the sophomore album’s seven hypothermic tracks.

Based on fast and atmospheric black metal, 'Paysages polaires' balances between beautiful and harsh dirges in combination with the conceptual middle trifold of songs based around the North American winter. A secret fire of stellar splendor as Cantique Lépreux reveals a wild black metal monument set in ice and stone.

about

CANTIQUE LÉPREUX Québec City, Québec

It is the faith of the cursed to walk to the abandoned lands and lose themselves in the forest.

There they draw from ancient rivers the Arcanes.
