After three years of intensive work, French romantic doom metal masters Angellore are now ready to lift the veil on their new magnum opus, Rien Ne Devait Mourir (nothing was meant to die). Composed of eight epic, well-varied songs for a full hour of enchanting music, this third album imposes itself as the darkest, most symphonic and ambitious work of the band to date.
Rien Ne Devait Mourir features a choir and a lot of guests playing traditional instruments (flutes, celtic harp, cello, violin, organ, grand piano…), including the oboist/keyboard player Gunnar Ben of Skálmöld fame. Deeply emotional at heart, Angellore is weaving dreamy soundscapes that not only rekindle the flame of 90’s dark metal but also bring new life into the genre.
Double LP in gatefold cover, mastered for vinyl and including two bonus tracks: “Rassembler Les Cendres” and “Twilight´s Embrace” (featuring Thomas Helm from Empyrium) plus an extensive 40 pages booklet with text written by Mike Liassides (doom-metal.com), album credits, lyrics and exclusive graphic material.
