Being a musical style that enjoyed its greatest heyday and period of development in the 1970s and 1980s, it is remarkably difficult in 2016 to find a heavy/doom metal band that practices its craft with the same level of conviction and authenticity as its forefathers. Cauchemar, a French-Canadian quartet of practitioners of this craft, are an exception in an otherwise drowning sea of mostly uninspiring, modern-day, traditional heavy metal bands. Beginning with their debut recording, the “La Vierge Noire” MLP, and continuing with their first full-length album, “Tenebrario,” Cauchemar laid the necessary groundwork for a strong bid to place themselves atop the mantle under which the flames of true heavy metal still burn. With the release of their second album, “Chapelle Ardente,” Cauchemar continues this crusade with the enduring support of Nuclear War Now!
