La Breiche (the witch) features two well-known musicians: Arexis and Lafforgue of Stille Volk, a band best known since 1994 as one of the pioneers of pagan folk in Europe, and of French pagan black metal band Sus Scrofa. 'Le Mal Des Ardents' is a concept album about fears, terrors, about the balance between folklore and reason, myth and common sense, light and darkness, past and present, modernity and archaism. The album marries minimalism, purity, a fine approach and ancient instruments: traditional music (hurdy gurdy, shawm, polyphonies, percussion, gongs); the gloom of oppressive dark ambient; the slow pace of ritual music, wavering between modernity and archaism. Voices rise towards beauty, lifting it away from some occult mud. 'Le Mal Des Ardents' takes us back to a forgotten world - a primal, ancient, wild and free world, pervaded by secret dances of sorcerers, unfathomable forests, remote and lifeless places. Comes in 6-panel digipak.
