Now we are entering the territories of the "Metal Noir Quebecois" (MNQ), a kind of secessionist black metal movement from Québec, a land not considered by its band like a mere province of Canada but like an autonomous territory with traditions, language (in fact, the French is the official language of Québec) and culture completely different than the rest of the Nation. All this is due to the particular history of this Province, that was colonized by France during 16-17th centuries before it surrendered the Québec to the Great Britain after its defeat in the Seven Years' War.
