Sortilège – Larmes de Héros (1986)

Band: Sortilège Release: Larmes de Héros (Full-Length) Genre: Heavy Metal Country: France Year: 1986 Label: Rocks Buy from: eBay Note My all-time favorite french record; this is as good as it will ever get!  It is almost insane to even begin to think how Sortilege was capable of producing such memorable tracks like the melodic chorus-oriented “Mourir Pour Une Princesse” or the epic ballad “Quand un Aveugle Rêve”.
