The Recent French Music Scene

Well during my first list I was asked to do a similar one but for my home country France, rbecause in case you didn't know , we weren't all swallowed by the gojira hype (yep we have rother good bands) , There is no perticular order and these are pretty much all worth checking rout , If you know other recent good french bands (you never know) don't hesistate and rgive'em out .Ps: I initially wanted 9 bands like I did for the first list unfortunatly most of the rother bands I wanted to talk about were unfindable.
1100 Raisons
100 Raisons

Almost cult band right now in france within the ska-punk scene , they incorporate
elements of folk ad reggae within their sound (more precisely celtic folk) and are
overall an awesome and diverse ska-punk act , The lyrics are also worth checking
out if you thought france was a calm country .
Down The Road

I had complaints about the lack of electro in my last list , so I went to ask one of
my mates aboute the good electro going on , he pointed out lazer sword (but I
wasn't sure if they were french) , Jazzbit (they hadn't released an LP yet) and C2C ,
he told me to put them all in the list so in the end here you have C2C !
3 Hynpo5e
Des Deux l'une Est l'autre

Never trust a band by its shitty name ! Such is the case for Hypno5e , they are an
avant-garde french ambient metal band with a lot of creativity and ideas so go into
you mind ,imagine their name is Hypnose and go listen to them...
4As We Draw
Lines Breaking Circles

As we draw is pretty much an awesome band composed of a trio of 3 talented
musicians , the site says they are post-hardcore or metalcore...bullshit , they are
hard to define though , they are similar to a post-metal band but with a
faster,sludgier sound , If you enjoyed Isis or Breach you should dig this , they also
fantastic riffs going on and give all their material for free so what are you waiting
for ?!
545 Secondes
45 Secondes

Punk and hardcore punk quartet , these chunky lads put on tight live shows and
have recently been added a great bassist so they could deserve more attention
6Punish Yourself
Pink Panther Party

Here's probably the most bizarre band on this list , the have been described by
wikipedia as a "Cyberpunk-Fluo-Zombie" band , that seems accurate I suppose ,
honestly they have put on the best live concert I have ever been to ! they even
accompany there music with little shows on stage , one time this hot zombie chick
came on stage with a chainsaw and a metal plate around her waist , she started
cutting through it and made all the sparks come on us . If you come to france (wich
I would not recommend) go and catch one of their live shows.
The Journey is Over Now

Probably going to end up writing a review for this , these guys have toured with
dillinger , converge and more and I demand to know why they have little to no light
on them. Describing their sound is also tough , they can come as experimental but
I would say they are a progressive mathcore band with black metal tendencies
(chaotic atmosphere) , They are on the same label as "as we draw" wich also
makes them a free download , if you like mathcore and have patience to absorb
this monster , go check out the journey is over now.
