satyre cornu" will be released in June 2001 and rests on a very
energic and medieval style, an orgiastic and mystic atmosphere

In june 2003, the 4th album is
out: its called Maudat. According to the artistic tradition of the
band, this is a conceptual album about a sorceress who travels into a
phantasmatical universe full of myths, visions and legends. This is a
fantastic ride into a universe of various instruments which declaim
their madness, a tragic and festive nocturnal dance, a mythical past
filled with incredible melodies, overexcited ambiances jumbled wtih
emotional moments, a Middle Ages and celtic music recreated by this
fantastic band. A lot of spells are ready to take your souls while
listening to these telluric songs. Maudat is their new album,
bewitching, a mix of lively tunes and dark laments. The album "
Nueit de sabbat" is created in 2009 and la Pèira Negra in 2014.
