Forteresse- Métal Noir Québécois (2006)

Forteresse is a stellar example of the high quality music Canadian black metal bands are producing. As with many Canadian (particularly Québécois) bands, nationalism is at the forefront of this band, with samples of Canadian folk music included in many of the songs.  Epic melodies from both the subtle keyboards and the skillful guitar work. I'd highly recommend this to, first and foremost, anyone who appreciates well-composed, well-executed black metal. I think fans of everyone from Drudkh, to Taake, Hate Forest, and Kataxu. Sepulchral Productions.
