Initially released as a MCD in 2005, sold out since a long time, and after the rerelease as tape in 2015,
the first recording of OSSUAIRE is now available again as a MCD, with reworked artwork.
Expect four songs of old school Death metal with ferocious moments à la old Morbid Angel,
heavier war patterns à la old Bolt Thrower, barbaric feelings, obscure atmospheres,
and lyrics depicting the horrors and atrocities from the medieval times.
OSSUAIRE (Which translates as "Ossuary" in english) incarnates old school death metal darkness and brutality, from the depths of France, and emerged from nothingness in a time when few were concerned with the style. Their recordings deserve to approach more carapace souls, and possibly to plant the seed of medieval barbarity.

VOICES FROM THE DARKSIDE Webzine (Ger)
It's not much more than a year ago that I had a tape version of this release on my plate. This release means the demo tape of a still too unknown band from France named OSSUAIRE. Originally released in 2005, this demo recording still sounded forcing and convincing when I heard them for the first time. Taking into concern that “Le Troubadour Nécrophageophile” was already about ten years old back then, it is not exaggerated to use the term “timeless” in this case. Brutal Death Metal with a certain bias for the old heroes of US Death Metal of the time around 1990 was the game OSSUAIRE played on “Le Troubadour Nécrophageophile”. The short songs were a little bit technical, but not too technical or complex. Listening to the four songs (and one fine intro) again even was a bigger joy now. Songs like the neckbreaking title track or the brilliantly grooving 'Le Fléau' haven't lost a tiny bit of intensity. So, why am I writing words of praise again? It's just because “Le Troubadour Nécrophageophile” was just re-released again, this time on CD, just the way it was originally done by the band. Everybody who doesn't own a tape deck anymore should now be able to dig this gem. And as I already stated, OSSUAIRE are worth to be checked out.

This is a re-release of the French band, Ossuaire’s 2005 debut demo, which originally was released on a limited run, of only 100 pieces on cd. This is my first encounter with the band, who are apparently still active. But one thing is for sure, they are not a very prolific band, having formed in 2000, and since then they have released a total of 11 songs over three releases in sixteen years! So how is the music on here? It is some solid death metal, in vein of stuff like old Morbid Angel, Bolt Thrower, Cannibal Corpse, Immolation and that style of death dm. I must say, for a first time demo, the song writing on here is quite good, and the guys play their instruments well. They are not just brutal, but at times create a pretty cool atmosphere or vibe, with their music, that creates a dark and dangerous feeling emotionally. I like that. No, there is nothing groundbreaking here, just a really solid release, which should appease fans of old classic American style of death metal. - Dale
