Koen B. : From the infernal gates of hell (a.k.a. France) comes Lords Of The Cemetery, a two man band that debuts with ‘Citipati’ on Great Dane Records. The band consists of ex GaidjinN member Reno Cavadaski (drums) and L.C.F. (Christophe Florian), ex-Comédie Macabre and Vanguard X Mortem (guitars / vocals). Somewhere I read the band is inspired by the likes of Nocturnus and Dissection, but honestly I don’t catch these influences.
Sure, Lords Of The Cemetery plays death metal with some weird and vivacious noises this doesn’t have anything in common with aforementioned acts. The band from Paris is quite original if you ask me and if I do have to give a reference, I would mention Arkhon Infaustus here. Where are they now you might ask yourselves? Anyway, ‘Citipati’ is a death metal album that truly displays imaginative depth of expression alongside the foreseen hunger for blood and extremities.
