With a very mordacious lucidity, the album explores in a profoundly intimate – but at the same time increasingly hostile, abrasive and direct – gesture the preambles of a sincerely harmonious description. At the same time, though, the melodies can be described as accessible and simple, and they touch the general sentimental grounds of the soul with sincerity and grace.
The album does not displace nor dismiss the conventional commonalities of the genre; as a matter of fact, this artifices are used as very useful and satisfactory artistic tools, that deepens the lenient harmonies in between the paradox of its rhythmic dynamism. Despite the fact that the work does have some predictability – as it does not explore too much further new creative horizons –, the album remains loyal to the principles of the genre without being redundant, monotonous or ordinary. So, atmospheric black metal enthusiasts certainly can hear Les Avatars du Vide without any chance of becoming disappointed.
While the album cannot be considered a major masterpiece, it is abundant on a great deal of qualities revolving the consolidation, structure and dissipation of harmonies. All the way through, the work solidly displays a severe and vast degree of authenticity, that guarantees with fundamental reliability its place of honor on the underground scene.
