[news] ALGELLORE sophomore album, “La Litanie Des Cendres”, out on Shunu Records

After signing a deal with Shunu Records, the French atmospheric post-doom metal combo ANGELLORE recently released its sophomore album, “La Litanie des Cendres”. Just like their debut, “Errances”, this five-song CD was recorded and mixed between July 2012 and April 2014 by Florent Krist (bass player in CYNIC’s side project AEON SPOKE) at EverTone Studio in France and mastered by Markus Skroch (HEL, NATTSOL, ELANE). Commenting on the album’s production, the band said: “Creating “LA LITANIE DES CENDRES” (French for “Litany of ashes”) was a very demanding process, but we can assure you that the result is worth all the efforts we put into it. And it definitely feels great to start anew with a young and welcoming home like SHUNU RECORDS. With their help, we will make sure we take ANGELLORE to the next level. We can’t wait to take you on our new musical journey. The best is yet to come!”
