Canadian Black Metal band Canada Givre have just put out a brand new video for one of the tracks from their upcoming album, "Destin Messianique", which is to be released via Eisenwald on September 30th. The song is titled "Le Christ aux Oliviers", check it out:


The label commented on what listeners can expect with the new record:

While some groups may be content with creating music for mere entertainment, GIVRE has higher ambitions: The album is meant to be nothing less than a musical documentary of the early 20th-century spiritual mission of Québec. Therefore, the record is filled with archive samples, literary citations and field recordings, integrated in melancholic compositions, in which elements of Post Metal, Folk and Ambient flourish between world-weary Black-Metal-riffs and tormented screams. A uniquely sounding mixture that fits the historical background well.

The album was self-produced by guitarist and composer David in the band’s rehearsal space and in his own home studio. Recording took place in May 2020, and mixing followed in August.

With "Destin Messianique", GIVRE invites you to reflect on the atoning side of pain. It bears testament to the mentality of a people striving to maintain their identity while going through hardship - humble and hard-working, resigned and Catholic. With its well-thought-out concept and atmospherically dense compositions, the album lures the audience into sublime sadness, clings to hearts with icy fingers – and doesn’t let go.

To get a better idea of what Givre offer, last month the band released a music video for one of the tracks from their previous album, "Le Pressoir Mystique":


The complete tracklist for the new album is as follows:

  1. La Sainte-Vierge Intervenant en Faveur de L'Armée Française à la Bataille de la Monongahéla
  2. Le Christ aux Oliviers
  3. Érable Rouge
  4. La Voix
  5. Cantique pour la Canonisation de la Vénérable Jeanne d'Arc
  6. Le Laboureur
  7. Dernier Martyr
  8. Consécration à la Vierge par Maurice Duplessis

The cover art for "Destin Messianique" was created by German artist Martin van Valkenstijn, perhaps better known as the mastermind behind Germany Mosaic:
