Full Length Review: SEKTARISM La Mort de l'Infidèle

La Mort de l'Infidèle
Release Date: May 19, 2017
The three songs here remind me of the French band Eros Necropsique and a little of the depressive atmospheric black metal band Sombre Chemin (France) and Hypothermia (Sweden). Sektarism’s insane universe drives you to a completely depressive unexplored world, calling your conscience. The slow rhythm in "Conscience, Révolte, Perte du Moi" (which literally means "conscience, revolt (emotional), loss of the ego (like you don't know who you are anymore) is certainly the most depressive here. Imagine being stocked in a padded confined room wearing a camisole. It's a fight between being conscious and totally unconscious: "mon égal, ce traitre" (my ego, this Judas). The song invites us to think more deeply. It’s a very dark, tragic opera. The best way to make you feel dark emotion is certainly theirs. I like the way he's staging the madness. "Brûle l'hérétique" ("Burn, Heretic!") sounds like doom metal, but most of the time I do not understand the lyrics. It’s fine anyway, because the music is the most important and lets my impressions out with the atmosphere. "Ô Seigneur", which means "O Lord", sounds weird. You can hear the chains, like those of a prisoner kept in a dark and humid dungeon. It's about a heretic from a sect who talks to his god (“Lord”) during a religious ceremony. The atmosphere becomes darker and darker, like a form of violence. Why do we call "him" "Seigneur"? Why not "Saigneur” (the one who bleeds)? We pronounce both the same but the word in English is completely different. "Lord" is for high class aristocratic men. I don't like the lyrics so much. La mort de l'infidèle means "the death of the infidel". This reminds me of crimes in the name of heretics using terror and propaganda. -Abyss Forgottentomb
