Record number three from this French black metal horde. A concept record of sorts, influenced heavily by THE BLUES, hence, Crossroad. Buzzing, blasting, blurred black metal fury, but with a strange melodic undercurrent, close listening does in fact reveal some blues, but those blues are buried beneath a roiling black sea of furious guitars, wild drum blasts and howled vokills, gloriously grim, noise drenched and black. Whow ould have thought that members of distorto psych rockers the Gunslingers and avant alchemical post rockers Aluk Todolo were capable of such black brutality...
