Sortilège was - with Trust, Blasphème, Adx, Vulcain, Warning and a few others - one of those bands who struggled to win France over to heavy metal. That was back in the 80s and, trust me I was there, that wasn't an easy task at all. It meant small independant labels, poor production, very little promotion, playing on small stages with a crappy sound and too few people coming. It would have made sense if those bands were bad, shame is they weren't. Sortilège, for example, was a great classical heavy metal band. With a super-melodic and apt vocalist, two skilled axemen and an efficient rhythm section, they produced something that could have competed with German and English bands of the same era. Thing is, for that to happen, people should at least have been informed of the very existence of Sortilège and, apart from a few die-hard metal fans, none were.
Larme de Héros, their third album, is both their best and last album. Like the two preceeding opuses, it has a sub-par production but don't let that stop you from trying it After all, wasn't Sortilège number one fan none other than Death's leader, Mr Chuck Shuldiner? If that doesn't convince you, I don't know what will. If you're a fan of 80s metal you ought it to yourself to try it, you won't be disappointed.
