Bon jour! This week’s metal history lesson salutes the power of free speech and blows out the boundaries of unrestricted self-expression with a thirty-year review of dramatic, mind-bending metal from our sister nation, France. From classic NWOBHM-era cuts by Trust, H-Bomb, and Vulcain; to the lethal deathly thrash of Agressor and Massacra; including the industrial bleakness of Treponem Pal and Blut Aus Nord; the overwhelming blackness of Aosoth and Deathspell Omega; and the modern metal mastery of Gojira and Kronos, we salute the ongoing retort against religious fanatics of all varieties. Merci beaucoup—know your Roots!
