Avant-Garde Metal Week: Forgotten Silence – La Grande Bouffe

Contrary to the album title and tracklist, Forgotten Silence are a Czech avant-garde/prog metal band. La Grande Bouffe is their sixth studio album, and there's quite a lot of diversity present in the tracklist (half of the songs are 30-80 second long interludes though). The overall theme would be jazzy progressive death metal with electronic elements employed in a manner that is closest to The Monolith Deathcult. Weird death metal that varies in tempo and tone, with industrial elements added to give the music more color. But does La Grande Bouffe provide a grand buffet of enjoyment, or will it be forgotten in silence?
