That's right, Faerical Blasting Punk. That is how French outsider black metal band, Nuit Noire, describe their sound, and why not? It aptly describes their paper-thin and playful sound. Starting out in 1998 as a more straight forward norsecore band, they morphed into one of the strangest entities on the increasingly bizarre French black metal scene. Perhaps the strangest aspect to Nuit Noire are their lyrics about childhood, frolicking, playing, and sex with faeries, Nuit Noire love faeries. Infantile Espieglery was released in 2006. It is such a weird album of sparse, clumsy punky black metal so clearly lacking bass to fill out the sound. Singer/guitarist Tenebras' snotty vocals sound as if they could only come from a disillusioned French adolescent. Every so often he is joined by the rather malaise-stricken female voice of Emilie, his girlfriend and playmate. To further the childish agenda, Infantile Espieglery bears rather interesting art direction. All the text is hand-calligraphed in what appears to be the work of a pre-teen girl who really loves princesses and horses. The cover art is an old school, zine-style cut and paste job; like the music, it seems unfinished and intentionally so. Nuit Noire is not for everyone, but those who understand will immediately be compelled to shed their hardened exterior and run and dance in the forest with them. Are you ready for the night? Are you ready to be a child?
