Anyone into French Metal/Prog/Psych?


Recommended Posts

Hurray! I love Magma! Listening to Attahk on a good system is bliss. I got to see Zebehn Strain De Geustaah and his crew in London a couple years ago, greying and balding, but with the drums still driving the burning furnace of their machine.....

 

I don't know those other, newer bands, so thanks for giving me something new to discover!

The first time I heard Gojira I didn't like their music. I got an album (can't remember the title) from a friend of mine, a recording engineer who said - 'check this out, everybody's sampling these drums nowadays'. I checked them out a couple of years later and I quite like their two most recent albums - they are more 'mainstream' metal than their earlier stuff, guess I'm a bit old-school :)

Never heard of them - tried a track ...

 

Instruments - excellent!

 

Vocals - terrible ...

 

Dead meat for me ...

Dear Sir! Joe Duplantier is a far better singer IMO, than James Hetfield.

 

The music is other worldy, for sure!

Yes, their two most recent albums elevated them above the pack so to speak..great production, heavier presentation, and some psych flourishes.

There are so many "little known" French heavy prog bands, we can begin a list..and many modern ones too..even lots of folk rock..French versions of Fairport Convention or Steeleye Span so to speak..

 

I had the pleasure of seeing Magma several times in their prime around Europe.
