La Masquerade Infernale' - Arcturus (8/10). Avant-garde metal is a label given to a wide range of artists, each presumably pursuing their music from a different angle. La Masquerade Infernale" is a cult album, like the band's debut for Black Metal, for Avant- Garde Metal. Great moments, great performances by the musicians overall, this is recommendable to any Metal-head, and essential for an Avant-Garde fan.

La Masquerade Infernale (French for The Infernal Masquerade) is the second studio album by Arcturus. Released by Misanthropy Records in 1997, the album marks a drastic musical change from the slow, nature-influenced symphonic black metal of Aspera Hiems Symfonia. Most of the songs revolve around the themes of theater, literature, and Satan

This album came as a musical shock to the Arcturus fan base, making extensive use of odd sounds and incredible vocals, besides the overall weirdness of the album. This album is released on the British label, Misanthropy. Garm - vocals, samples Steinar Sverd Johnsen - keyboards Knut M. Valle - guitars Hellhammer - drums Hugh Stephen James Mingay - bass. The next track, 'La Masquerade Infernale' is basically a filler track. Just some piano, along with some samples and soft vocals.

La Masquerade Infernale by Arcturus is an extremely innovative and progressive album for it’s time and even for the present. They were one of the first black metal bands to abandon the cliché black metal sound. La Masquerade Infernale – Title song, instrumental and odd piece of keyboard music. Alone – A poem from Edgar Allan Poe put on music. What I really like with this song is how the music is almost at black metal speed at times (Hellhammer shows his skills in the intro) but the singing is rather slow and almost against the melody lines in the music but it all fits together.
