French Black Metal, need i say more? This is the 'War Funeral March Demo' from Les Légion Noire band VladTepes. The Les Légion Noire were a group of like minded youngsters in France who loved Black Metal. They all had bands, and all the bands shared a great deal of members with one another. I love VladTepes, although i must say they differ greatly from most black metal, almost to the point that their music should be classified in a different genre. They sound a great deal more like GISM then your average DarkThrone or Burzum clone band. I would say they kinda of "Metal-Punkish". Anyways this is an awesome release. It is so very raw and unrelenting with fabulous guitar solos that would even make Randy Uchida(guitar player for GISM) tear a lil'. This demo contains five tracks and was released by Full Moon in 1994-5?. This release is a step up production wise for the band but still keeps a very "no-fi" quality about this release that i really enjoy and think adds a great deal to the record on a whole. I know a lot of people complain about production, but when lo-fi is done right it can add a whole new level to the music that can really draw the listener in. In addition here are some other Les Légion Noire bands you might enjoy: Aäkon Këëtrëh , Amaka Hahina , Belathuzur, Belketre, Black Murder, Brenoritvrezorkre, Dzlvarv, Moëvöt, Mogoutre , Mütiilation, Satanicum Tenebrae, Seviss, Susvourtre, Torgeist, Vermeth, Vagézaryavtre, Vérmyapre Kommando, Vzaeurvbtre
