With this brand new album ACROSOME has certainly touched the absolute masterpiece. "Narrator and remains" is a unique album: violent, surrealistic, mystical and damned spooky.
This is not however simply a black metal album, ACROSOME has anchored the sound in this very explorative mode, but uses his expertise to take it far beyond murk, grit and fractured soul
The sounds are incredibily dark and often punishing – torturous and occasionally frightening, but DA somehow manages to offset it with an occasional flourish of beauty or calm.
One of a kind (...maybe just Arcturus), it's a desperate scream in the red desert hungry ghosts, a trip amid the fury of the sandstorm. We are in other worlds : maestoso in his "Morricone-like" whistling only means to evoke hidden divinity to the most (and even himself ...).
"Narrator and remains" draws colors only from the sand and a cobalt sea in the distance ... Ancient, arcane and hidden prophecies, rites blasphemous idols of forgotten crystal sea, where no one has ever dared to gallop. It destined to wander forever in an eternal nothingness, looking himself .

It's the keyboards which shouldn't work. They are very prominent in the mix & at times even overwhelm other instruments. But it works perfectly & that is kind of the concept, right? Once I got past that initial barrier, this album just opened up. Borgne aren't easy to pin down & sit way outside the typical metal subgenre tags. Listen to the unsettling epicness of "Un temps périt" to see what I mean. It is ugly, beautiful & deathly all at once. And yet everything is held by those OTT keys. Nice. bcb723
