Regard Extreme - Legacy [CD]
Limited edition of 150 copies, comes as 6-panels glossy laminated digipak.
Regard Extrême is a name that should be familiar to anyone into neofolk, neoclassical and martial industrial. Since its inception in 1990, Regard Extrême has collaborated with luminaries Les Joyaux De La Princesse and was featured in both the book and on the compilation album Looking For Europe. One can safely say Regard Extrême and its sole member Fabien Nicault have left their mark on orchestral post-industrial music.
Legacy updates old classics with a powerful, clear but still powerful sound, full of heroic bombast, martial drama and evocative orchestrations. Pigeonholing Legacy is impossible: it is equal amounts neoclassical and martial industrial, epic and brooding, bellicose and dramatic. With its nuanced and detailed compositions drawing equally from classical music and the post-industrial underground, Legacy exemplifies clearly the skill and professionalism through which Regard Extrême have made themselves into a cult name.
This work consists of tracks composed during a period ranging from the years 1995 to 2022.
