Tatanak - Self-Titled (2012)

Tatanak is new french band, there's only info that they recorded their EP in march this year. This EP contains 8 tracks: 7 tracks of EP and 1 track is demo version of first 7 songs. I like how they change sound from beginning to then end of EP. First track is noise hardcore - I liked this track much more on EP; second is transition noisy rocking track and then tracks going in crust grind way with much influences of powerviolence. There's only sad that it's too short.

No Hay Deaz was band from Lille, formed in 2002. Their style is changing between post-rock, noise, hardcore, math rock, free jazz and screamo. Their drummer previously played in Submerge and now two guys from NHD play in duo noise-math rock band Ed Wood Jr. No Hay Deaz released also 2 mcd in 2003 and 2004, but I have only their LP 2007's.

You Will Never Appear On TV With Such A Face

You Will Never Appear On TV With Such A Face was indie rock band, found in 2006. On drums and guitar play members of 90s legend - Ivich, so I think many people will be interested in this. Despite the low sound and much indie-rock melodics this group have their interesting sound with emotive moments and sweet riffs (2nd track on EP is excellent!), much reminds 90s midwest . They released EP in 2007 and LP in 2010.
If someone wants share LP with me - please message me.

Ed Warner's Cage

Ed Warner's Cage - in reference to the character's famous goalkeeper present in the manga Captain Tsubasa - is a French band composed of 5 members, found in 2001. In 2003 band record split with Rookie Rock Radio and after 3 years they make again split with them. Also band have splits with Lost Sphere Project and Le Massacre Du Client De 15 Heures. In 2008 they present their first LP "Iera Anagrafh". And after pause in some years they will release new LP "Le retour de la femme insecte" in end of 2012.
Their music is more close to screamo bands like Aghast, Gameness, but they have also influence of post-hardcore bands (Tang, Venosa ...) and a bit influence of post-rock sounding (l’Homme Puma). In their sound many expresions and changes of mood. I like very much moments in their songs like "A Travers l'Oeil de Portia" when first 30 sec they speak, then loud screaming wall of sound, then post-rock dancing and screaming ending. Structure of songs in this album reminds me "Venosa - Dancing Together under a Rain of Ashes (2009)"

You can stream their songs on bandcamp. Also follow them through website and facebook.

Cromwell O - Dance ce soir, soumet toi demain (200?)

Found them... somewhere. Only information about them - they have existed from 2002 to 2004. Also their bass-guitar guy was in a band called Leka Tchipa (90's) and Anomie.
Good french screamo/violence.

Direwolves - Me From Myself, To Banish (2012)

It's done, after their 2-tracks demo I liked them much nad waited for any new. And now they released 6-tracks EP through Throatruiner records. Fans of agressive hardcore punk must like it. Also they are good in mixing of some styles, despite the ambiguity of it - they make very interesting sound! In fact that I can't stop to listen it for long time I think that it will be one of the best release in 2012 on french hardcore scene. 

You cand order EP and merch through their  facebook  and stream on bandcamp 


website / bandcamp

(platane) is hardcore band from Paris found around 2010. You cand download this group for free from their bandcamp so I don't understand why they are so underrated. It's another great dancing noisy tune that you need check! They have much good influences, you can check info about them through their website. Among bands from France this band similar to Cheval and hardcore bands like Morse, Direwolves but with noise rock infulence like Sleepers.
