The long awaited full lenght album for the french act Grisâtre finally released. After two acclaimed split albums here comes “L’idée De Dieu”, six unreleased tracks of pure bleaky black metal at its best.
Grisâtre is a project of ambient / atmospheric Black metal founded in 2006 by Rokkr. At the beginning Grisâtre had no vocation to become a project which was going to evolve, it was simply a release researching for feelings that shall transcend the perception. But after some encouragements and propositions, Rokkr decided to propose its music to those who wanted to take time to listen to..
Grisâtre produces a music aiming at the call of the feelings which take to the reflexion, to the discovery of an unconscious occult knowledge, it’s also a personal representation of visions, perceptions. A vision Artistically metaphysical.. Grisâtre is an idea (Conceptually).

Interesting experimental black metal. The industrial and synth aspects don’t distract too much, because the blackened core remains throughout. There are a wide variety of musical elements on this album. It’s a fairly unique take on the genre. Good stuff. Metallurgical Fire

Yet another band that does not fit cleanly into established genres. It’s doom, sure, but I hear a more progressive sensibility than black or death metal. Not every album with atmosphere and a few blast beats is atmospheric black metal! Anyway, this is a release with true emotional depth. The songwriting is very compelling, though I was initially ambivalent about the subject matter. Metallurgical Fire
"Curse These Metal Hands" parlays the UK bands' chemistry into a record which—for all its tinnitus-inducing ferocity and elegiac arrangements—practically drips with transcendent joy. Bandcamp Album of the Day Aug 18, 2019
