Zackflag The term 'masterpiece' is used far too habitually these days but this album is a rare case where the moniker is warranted. Unquestionably the very best Death Metal album of 2016 and I would put it in the top three of the decade.

Neil Grace The thinking persons death metal band! Beautiful arrangements and skilfully played. Technical (but not overtly so), atmospheric and astoundingly well mixed. I see why some reference Demilich, but really a disservice as these guys have very much their own sound...lots of nods to 90s Finnish DM but very unique.
Cannot wait to see where they go next!

Montreal Quebec’s CHTHE’ILIST was formed in 2010 by the duo of vocalist/guitarist/bassist Philippe Tougas and drummer Philippe Boucher (also of notorious Canadian tech death metal wizards Beyond Creation). Their intent was to play abhorred and dark atmospheric brutal Demilich-worship technical death metal with over-the-top guitar shredding. The result would be the “Amechth'ntaas'm'rriachth” demo which caused quite the stir in the underground death metal scene.

Now almost five years since the duo (now a three-piece) unleashed their demo, their much anticipated (within the death metal underground at least!) debut full-length “Le Dernier Crépuscule” is finally set for release early 2016. Recoded in various places and mixed by Greg Chandler (Esoteric, Cruciamentum, Indesinence) at his Priory Studios, “Le Dernier Crépuscule” is an insane dark death metal sonic pillage where the band’s old-school Finnish death metal hailing (i.e. Crematory, Abhorrence, early Xysma, and of course the aforementioned Demlich), along with taking influence from the likes of old-school Pestilence, Nocturnus, Timeghoul, and Ripping Corpse, reflects through their massive ambitious pieces that form their debut album.
