Founded in 2015, À l’Ombre d’Héméra is a post-metal outfit from Lévis, Canada. The band’s core identity is defined by many-faceted soundscapes with contrasts between luminosity and darkness, yin and yang, life and death. The French lyrics are an introverted reflection of an intense existential questioning regarding life challenges from an inside/out perspective.
2022 announces the return of À l’Ombre d’Héméra with a third album entitled “Saison de déceptions”. With a rigorous DIY approach, the band still infuses listeners with its signature powerful tone; a well developed balance between poles apart modulations one can also find on “Le mur des ombres” (2017) and “En route vers le grand vide” (2019). The new album proposes five visceral songs with epic proportions never heard before.

Par rapport au monstrueux A Dawn to Fear, The Raging River est un album qui paraît presque raisonnable. Sauf qu’il est dans la continuité de Cult of Luna, c’est-à-dire pas raisonnable du tout. Comme bande-son de fin du monde, il se pose un peu là: à l’instar de son titre, il va balloter l’auditeur entre cailloux, troncs arrachés et débris divers.

Swimming in a black oily lake at night under extinguished stars. And I swear I didn't read the lyrics before I wrote this!
Love me intelligent metal, and this is highly intelligent. How can a couple of riffs get so deep to the very core of your thinking brain?
And technically, these riffs are perfect, and so is the songwriting. Brilliant album. YomaBarr
