Deuxième soirée de trois pour les demi-finales des Francouvertes! Nous étions conviés une nouvelle fois au Lion d’Or pour une soirée qui comptait sur un programme pas piqué des vers, du moins sur papier: Anatole et son bassin lascif, Yokofeu et son prog qui tire sur le post-punk de même que PONI et sa lourdeur quasi légendaire.

Le printemps est à nos portes et tous avaient le sourire facile, sauf pour les gens qui avaient abusé du houblon la veille. C’est Anatole qui donnait le coup d’envoi de cette deuxième séance et c’est à force de déhanchements et de prédications qu’il...

Green Hell. Septic Death. Green Death? Yes, that's the moniker for a Des Moines thrash band looking to restore Iowa's reputation in the extreme metal world after decades of Slipknot.  We actually picked up on Green Death in our print edition, with an effusive review that said: "this Des Moines outfit plays a classy brand of classic thrash a la Testament, Heathen and Pantera, with a little Type O Negative in there."

If that review isn't enough to sell you how about that album cover by Eliran Kantor (Testament, Iced Earth, Sodom).  Holy crap! It's like Rumpelstiltskin meets Hellraiser's Pinhead with a macabre image of...
