SONG PREMIERE: Enoid- Mangez ma chair, prenez ma douleur

Enoid- Exilé aux confins des tourments

Swiss musician Ormenos is a well-known figure in black metal world, as he has multiple active projects and been involved in countless more. You’re likely to know him best from his two long-running solo projects Borgne or Enoid, the latter of which is set to release a new full length later this week. Out on May 5th as a co-release from Satanath Records and Black Plague Records, ‘Exilé aux confins des tourments’ looks to be another strong showing from the band and will appeal to anyone looking for another display of raw, unrelenting black metal.

Today we’re pleased to have the opportunity to premiere the song Mangez ma chair, prenez ma douleur, the third song on the record. If you’ve heard the previously released singles you might be thinking that Enoid is going to spend much of the album going full throttle and hitting you with fast paced riffing. But this song showcases the project’s slower side, establishing an eerier lead riff that gets under your skin with a heavy amount of distortion and colder tonality. For a song that loosely translates to “Eat my flesh, take my pain”, this slower build-up and foreboding instrumentation feels appropriate. About three quarters of the way in Mangez ma chair, prenez ma douleur takes that denser atmosphere and throws the listener right into a swirling mixture of cold and abrasive riffing that’s up there with some of the best black metal has to offer.

The tense, dark instrumentation isn’t the only thing that the song has to offer though. Throughout the course of the track Ormenos delivers a harsh scream that is razor sharp and has just the right amount of reverb on it to have this larger than life feel that towers over the instrumentals. It’s that type of pitch that gets your skin crawling just as much as the riffing, and the level of distortion and grit to the performance really helps to set Mangez ma chair, prenez ma douleur over the edge and continually grab your attention.


All of the tracks that Enoid has released as a preview for ‘Exilé aux confins des tourments’ head in slightly different directions while still maintaining that icy, abrasive feel that black metal does so well. Despite the sheer amount of music Ormenos works on and releases over the span of a few years, he has the ability to write eerie, unsettling black metal with real substance to it and this album looks to be no exception. Get ready to be sucked into the darkness and despair of ‘Exilé aux confins des tourments’ on May 5th.
