French punk & violence: October 2010

Sunday, October 31, 2010



29/09 is a trio from France (Nantes, Pays de la Loire) . They formed in 2006 and play a sort of experimental Death Metal / Grindcore. Actually their music is somewhat like some sort of crossover between Grindcore and heavy Post rock. The current line up is as follow: François-Xavier aka FX - Drums, Vocals, Greg - Guitar and Didier - Bass. They have released one album in 2009 entitled “La violence Therapeutique” (Therapeutic violence”) and are currently signed on the American Label Poison Tree Records. They are famous for they crazy and unbridled performances on stage.

I Am John Spartan


It is awesome crust/screamo group from France, formed in 2008.

Ex : Noir -- Iblylom -- The Very Best of Chuck Norris -- Kahla'ad
Members of : Norman Bates -- Chaos is... -- Post War Depression
There are members of three very impresive bands that I like: The Very Best of Chuck Norris, Iblylom, Chaos is....
After first listening of "Demo" - I loved them. Expressive melodic, fast drums and perfect vocal make their sound excellent. All fans of french punk / screamo scene must check this band.
Now Thibault (vocal) and Thomass (bass) play guitars in Oak (post-rock).
