Geisterfels

La névrose de la pierre – reviews

« Hors du temps, ce premier album de Geisterfels est une excellente surprise, qui tire son épingle du jeu parmi la multitude des albums de Black français publiée depuis quelques années. Et même si le projet ne connaît pas de suite, espérons que Nebel, dont le talent nous est ici révélé, ne s’arrêtera pas en si bon chemin. » 8/10

« In making their debut with such a detailed, aggressive and melodically enriching release Geisterfels‘ examination of the ‘neuroses of the stone’ is an illuminating and complete effort worthy of any melodic black metal, or even pagan black metal, fan’s attention. »
Grizzly Butts

« A very good release by this French black metal band which hopefully will release a second album. “La névrose de la pierre” is a little gem. »
Morbus Blast Beats

« There certainly is pure black metal here but also pure and dark melody!One thing to take note of is when to listen to this. To let „La névrose de la pierre” fully envelope you, I would suggest listening to it late at night when it is really dark. It is no hit collection – but a work that can show the listener a world long gone by. Unique in the most positive meaning of the word! »
Absit Omen

« Geisterfels legen hier ein spannendes, ambitioniertes Werk vor, überraschen mit ihrer spleenigen Herangehensweise in Songwriting und Darbietung wie auch einem tollen Konzept und wollen so gar nicht in die moderne Schule des Black Metals gehören »

Geisterfels – La névrose de la pierre

Geisterfels builds its music around medieval themes with the will to perpetuate the sound of the 90s and the emotional sceneries conveyed by old school and atmospheric black metal. La névrose de la pierre is the tale of a trip, the one of a French poet who visited the Rhine and the Mosel valleys at the end of the nineteenth century. He was amazed by the many castles he found on his path. His poems thus make a parallel between the majestic ruins he’s seen and the sorrows leading one’s mind to collapse.

Geisterfels

Nebel founded Geisterfels in 2013. She took her inspiration from bands such as Abigor, Satyricon or Gehenna and tried to recreate the atmosphere that could be found in old school atmospheric black metal. The way Geisterfels depicts the Middle Ages however is different. Even if we love legends, we tried to come closer to history and it's something the band will try to develop in the future.
Aldébaran (Darkenhöld) joined in 2015 and Aharon (Griffon) in 2016.
