Chthe'ilist Le Dernier Crepuscule on 2LP
Conjured in 2010 by the duo of vocalist/guitarist/bassist Philippe Tougas and drummer Philippe Boucher, Chthe'ilist's intent was to play abhorred, morbid and dark atmospheric brutal technical death metal with over-the-top dual-harmonic guitar shredding. The result would be the Amechth'ntaas'm'rriachth demo which was released in 2012 and caused quite the stir in the underground death metal scene. The band's sound would ultimately reminisce the bizarre aura of such cult luminaries as Demilich (along with giving an overall nod to early ‘90s Finnish death metal, Demigod, Abhorrence, Xysma), Timeghoul, Infester, and Adramelech all while creating a horrid and vile atmosphere of enveloping dread.
Now almost five years since their inception, Chthe'ilist's earth devouring debut full-length album Le Dernier Crépuscule is being unleashed on vinyl courtesy of Dark Descent. Recorded and tracked in various places and mixed by Greg Chandler (Esoteric, Cruciamentum, Indesinence) at his Priory Studios, Le Dernier Crépuscule is a 53 plus minute other-worldly brutal and guttural death metal offering from the stars that will serve as some of the darkest, most twisted, vile, complex, and over-the-top time-stretching death metal you'll succumb to all year. An offering much more advanced and devastating than the band's demo where some of the tracks from Amechth'ntaas'm'rriachth have been given the total reprise treatment as wholly new interpretations on Le Dernier Crépuscule.
