Le Pré Où Je Suis Mort are a French band playing epic screamo that is not unfamiliar to other French screamo bands. Not unfamiliar in a good way I mean. This clearly is a quality product.
Three out of the four songs are between six and seven minute, one is almost 14 minutes. So we are really speaking of epic dimensions here. The recipe is the same old one of mixing quiet parts with loud ones, clean, picked guitars with distorted infernos and spicing all this with desperate screaming half way between hope and hopelessness. There is absolutely nothing new or special about this. But whoever digs screamo will love this record to death. It is just very well produced, well written screamo with good hooks and awesome harmonies in the guitars. Everything you can expect a screamo record to have there is plentiful.
The cd is out on the Swiss simpatico label Ape Must Not Kill Ape and vinyl can be pre-ordered via Denovali. With bands like this one screamo may live on forever. I wouldn’t complain…
