Grimoire - _A Requiem for the Light_
(Euphonious, 1996)
by: Adam Wasylyk (8 out of 10)
Grimoire are another black metal band on the Euphonious label that isn't from Norway or Sweden (along with Solhverv, see review in this issue). From the unlikely country of Israel hail Grimoire with their take on black metal, which is done very well and exceeds some of the genre's counterparts. Mixing traditional black metal with their own ideas (distorted vocals, piano/keyboard passages and sound effects), the well-written lyrics deal with varied topics from vampires to warriors. And yes, in the lyrics the words "fog", "moonlight", "mountains" and "woods" appear, after all I did say they were a black metal band!! Songs like "At Dark", "Nevuath Ha'Tom" and "Vampires" show that Grimoire do have talent at playing black metal . I do expect that this would be hard to find this at your local record store, so here's the label's address:
