Amer Béton

France/Suisse hardcore punk crust band with members, ex-members of Richard Durn, Gu Guai Xing Giu, Daily od, Le Temps des Mobylettes. Really interesting new french band.

Friday, December 30, 2011


Intense fast sound with great vocal), fans of french crust scene must check.

Egohine - St

carther matha

That's my favourite band in French 90's scene. I don't understand why people don't like them so, as Peu Etre, Rachel, Vanilla, Undone. I like their sound on "demo" more then on other release(s).


No any info about this band. But it sounds good and "fans" may check it.

Superstatic Revolution

Superstatic Revolution is experimental/chaotic hardcore band, remind me Down For Life. French chaotic hc scene isn't rich, so this band is a great discovery for me.

"switching from old school or hardcore metal to explorating a great amount of sub-genres of metal, stoner, rock, post hardcore, jazz and grind. "


Karras was hardcore punk band from Caen, consist members of Soar and Fuaim Catha. This band is good mix between hardcore punk, dark hardcore and screaming vocal, and so associated with french 90s screamo, crust scene.

For fans of Vanilla, Le Temps Des Mobylettes, must chek it. Nice screamo\noise sound with 90s influences.

The Last Day Of Icarus

Punk band with emo and dark hardcore influence. They have only demo and split with As We Draw.

Chaos Is...


Band from Alasce, France, conatains members of Noir, Iblylom. Absolutly a punk band, don't use term "screamo" to understand this band.
"When You wake up!..."

Chaos Is... - What About Tomorrow Lets Dance For Freedom (2009)
Chaos Is... - tracks from split with Fuck, Wolves! (2010) 
Chaos Is... - 5 tracks, EP (2011) 



French punk band with fast noisy screaming sound, their first s/t 2007 is so awesome. They are great in punk/hardcore, yea, this music is far from emo; here are more violence and riot. Also name is simillar to usa pop-punk band, so I think that's why these guys are so underrated.

Farewell - Demo 1 (2006) 



Formed in 1992 , VANILLA highly contributed to the rise of the so-called "french hardcore scene" , along with the now defunct FINGER PRINT and IVICH (among others).
Definitely influenced by the then innovative american scene , VANILLA stood out with an emotional yet-tortured hardcore style , very energetic and personal.
About 2004's, 2005's releases I'm not sure.
