John Zorn – 49 Acts Of Unspeakable Depravity In The Abominable Life And Times Of Gilles De Rais (2016)

John Zorn’s maddening orchestrations are brought to life by the massively talented three piece, Simulacrum. The compositions are almost operatic in a space rock / prog kinda way, taking the metal band template to strange new worlds. A glorious journey, but one, that for me at least, doesn’t quite invoke the horrors of the Gilles De Rais story.
