Six song preview from the new album:



The record label says:


Sorcier des Glaces has finally finished recording its third album called "The puressence of primitive forests" that will be released on July 25th on Mankind's demise records. A limited edition of 100 copies will include "Snowland" (original master) as a second CD. - Mankind's Demise


This is part of the band's triptych:


We can officially confirm that a third opus is in the making. So there are
going to be 3 new chapters in the Sorcier Des Glaces' saga. The first one
is "The Puressence of Primitive Forests", expect a release date in July
2011 on the Quebec label Mankind's Demise Records. A cover song will be
featured on the album, our version of Hungary's TORMENTOR "Tormentor I" (we
covered the first version of that song, originally appeared on "The 7th Day
of Doom" in 1987). Mankind's Demise will also release a limited 2CD edition of the album that will include a remastered version of our first album (1998' Snowland). I
know that the album has never been officially available, we've been asked
so many times for that so now this is your chance!

We wish to make the second album ("North") available not too far after
"Puressence...", all depends on how things will turn out.

Concerning the third and final chapter, it's actually in the making, all
songs are composed and some parts are already recorded as I write these
lines. It will be called "Ritual of the End". Hopefully we will record
three cover songs too for that album, 3 bands that are very influential for
Sorcier Des Glaces' sound and material since the beginning. Here are the
projected track-listing of the album:

1- Under the Moonlight
2- Morbid Ritual
3- Snowland
4- The Frozen sword of Midnight
5- The sign of the End
6- Slumbering in the Dark (outro)

Expect the three releases to be total Cold Primitive music! In our opinion
far better than everything we have done in the past (Snowland in 1998 and
Moonrise in Total Darkness in 1999). Everything gets darker, colder,
primal.... engulfed in a sombre melancholic atmosphere. Some riffs are very
old, composed even before our first album!
As for the split mini-album with Québec's MONARQUE, no release date yet but
It will certainly be in the first half of 2011. It will feature 4 exclusive
Sorcier Des Glaces songs (2 new songs, a cover and a remake of "The Night
Throne" from the Snowland album) they will not be featured on any of the 3
upcoming albums... - Sorcier des Glaces


The band has also release a complete MP3 of one song from the new album, "…Et les Anges périrent sous la Neige."

I think that Kontinual doesn’t do shit for the DLA. Prozak is too busy running for President, to write metal reviews anymore. You know what? Anus.com is a Metal website, and the most important leader of opinion on the net for that matter. Faithful readers and haters come to this site to get their facts right. So where are the metal reviews, the metal articles, the metal “stuff”? The regular posters on the Metal Hall all agree we shouldn’t care for anything other than the best in metal and forget about the rest. But you know what? Writing about the “rest”, meaning the good bands and albums that are just below the “excellence seal of approve” that the DLA stamps on all classics, IS worthawhile. Writing about “lost” bands/albums from 1990-1994 is what you guys should do, and bash the shit of the newer hipsterish stuff too! My point is there is a thick number of bands and albums that “didn’t make it” that ARE part of the Metal History and to acknowledge their existence even if their relevance was minimal is important simply because they are part of the history of metal music. Furthermore promoting the best of the best is not at conflict with acknowledging that which is not part of such elite.

the above AdrianMc Coy was an impersonator. I´ll post a list soon enough…

Well, I have to admit that there was no impersonation. I’ve just hesitated on the list above because after I posted it I thought it seems a little gay but now I’m able to fully embrace each band on the list.

Or maybe it is I who is a little gay and that’s what I should try to accept. I’m so unsure today.
