Smohalla is a post-black metal band from France. Formed in 2006, the band plays a kind of music which, between violence and ambient, is based on progressive structures. Smohalla combine influences from the mid-90s black/death scene with a personal conception of music and a modern touch. They recorded a first demo entitled "Smolensk Combustion". The lyrics revolve around the way vanity, fear and paranoia have destroyed the only things human beings could really possess: our serenity and our ancient dreams.
