Cendres - Ungeziefer (2007)

One of the all-time great lo-fi, esoteric black metal records. Ungeziefer is a cold, black fog of droning tremolo-picking, blasting drums, and ghoulish rasps, seeping from a long forgotten grave.

Track listing:
1. Alienation
2. Libération de L'âme
3. Ruine
4. La Troublant Danse du Pendu
5. Ungeziefer

It was as if that great rush of anger had washed me clean, emptied me of hope, and, gazing up at the dark sky spangled with its signs and stars, for the first time, the first, I laid my heart open to the benign indifference of the universe.
To feel it so like myself, indeed, so brotherly, made me realize that I'd been happy, and that I was happy still. For all to be accomplished, for me to feel less lonely, all that remained to hope was that on the day of my execution there should be a huge crowd of spectators and that they should greet me with howls of execration.
