ALL PUNK / METAL DIE HARDS BEWARE: ELECTRONIC MUSIC
This is a French electronic band released on both RAVACHOL and SVOBODA among other distributors seemingly recorded in 2009. All text in the booklet, including the song titles, is in French, except for the song titles Big Brother, and Microimplant. This band is a two piece, one does the synth work / programmed drums, and the other does the guitar work and vocals. Although I cant understand French, I do notice words here and there which make me aware that this band is anarchist in nature, and most likely advocate for an egalitarian society. The duo seems to work well together, calling to mind such European industrial metal bands as Die Krupps among others. no!, no Rammstein. The music is much more in that style, although some songs do have a cheesy techno sound which I hate. To be honest, I’m really not sure why EXOGENE or whomever was responsible, sent this for review to Profane Existence, because most punk / metal die hards would probably not approve. I grew up listening to industrial, punk, and metal, so I actually like this. What they do is decent, and is of a style which I thought had faded out about a decade ago. All lyrics are in French, except the chorus for Big Brother, which is pretty self explanatory. Booklet has some cool ufo pictures, and a band photo of the duo. One of them is wearing a BOLTTHROWER shirt, presumably the guitarist. This CD / band is good if you like industrial metal thats heavy on the keys. If you cant stand electric drums or keyboards, I recommend you dont bother.
