Drastus "La Croix de Sang" LP
Materializing in various form for nearly two decades the work of French black metal musician Drastus (ex-C.Y.T., Flamme Noire) had reached the point of nigh masterpiece by 2009 with ‘Serpent’s Chalice – Materia Prima’ EP serving as elevation above the The Ruins of Beverast-eque alternation of bombast and ambiance found on Drastus‘ debut full-length ‘Roars from the Old Serpent’s Paradise’ (2005); A product of ‘industrial’ black metal ideologues beyond Thorns and Blut Aus Nord that would show promise of transcendence as the first decade of the artists black devotion would progress. A decade of silence finds Drastus in 2019, howling mockery from a pulpit of fire with a blasphemic wind of ‘avant-orthodoxy’ fanning the diabolical grandeur he would craft under hermetic seal. Though frequent iteration would damn the ever-shifting modern artist into mediocrity Drastus has retained core ethos and approach from inception in combining classic French black metal evolutionary traits with ambiance, intermittent clean vocals, and ruthlessly flowing streams of guitar finesse.
