Calamites & les Calamités is the first full-length of Ascète. Through a rusty black metal, joyfully old, Ascète gives its vision of a forgotten and forlorn countryside, where the small poor people of campains slowly die in the indifference of big cities administrations. Melodic Black metal with punk/oï influences, Calamites & les Calamités haunts us in ridiculously difform Perigord legends, carried by the decadent proclamations howled in an almost ruined, out of age barn… (vocals were actually recorded there). The magnificent work on guitars and sound will carry you in a forgotten countryside, where an aging population, almost feral and animal-looking, discretly and suspiciously wanders in its misery. Among the remains of minor historical landmark monuments, which returns to Earth, too. Slower, maybe, but in the same definitive manner.
