TABLEAU MORT – VEIL OF STIGMA BOOK I: MARK OF DELUSION - LOUD RAGE MUSIC  
The band claim to draw symbolic and thematic influences from the Romanian Orthodox Christianity. What that exactly means could perhaps best be seen in the band’s images. James Andrews has the screaming metal voice sometimes reminiscent of Mayhem's Maniac covered and musically the opener called Impending Corruption is straightforward in its riffing with only the background chants adding something different. The second song, Fall Of Man, features a choir start that transitions into a sometimes heavy, sometimes faster black metal song. The song is interrupted by chants and choirs that drag the song into the gothic realm. Carpenter Of Sorrow (why not Harvester?) once again sees the band present a standard black metal song with only the smallest amount of disruption. Broken On The Wheel has a heavy bass section in between sometimes speedier black metal. Tapestry Sewn comes next and takes a few seconds to dive into pure speedy black metal. It doesn't carry it throughout and the choir takes over to provide atmosphere before the music finds itself again. Mother's Promise talks of false idols and prophets of a dying universe but the music is a more upbeat listen. It is sometimes Marduk-like and sometimes not so much but it is nevertheless effective. Beyond His Gaze closes this first book with the continuing theme of cosmic horror and the hidden dangers of the universe. The lyrics almost demand a slow section and Tableau Mort deliver. – Anna Tergel
