    In france we haven't a ''metal culture'' but since 20 years ago that musical way begin to popular. I thinks that funny to show you, our ''small'' metal experience. So this is an example of ''french band in any style of metal'' Don't laught about this :lol:
    What do you speaks about ? I repeat, excuse my english...:rolleyes:

    neo and hardcore







    and to the fan of death and black:




    and two cult french band but most rock than metal



    and in bonus

    The old French Death Metal scene was great. Loudblast, Massacra, Mercyless, Agressor, Supuration, Crusher, Asgard, etc... Good stuff.

    French Black Metal is massively overrated, but there's some good stuff amongst the legions of derivative, soulless clones.

    France is currently the hotbed of industrial black metal.

    It's the same way in the US that most metal bands aren't known to the popular culture.

    France is my favourite country for music, and I'm not speaking only of black metal. Also, I enjoy many French films.

    Celestia is so underrated. Great band. Have you heard the new releases?


    France fucking rules. My dad as born and raised there, so naturally I have to go visit there every other year. Great place. A ton great bands come from France and will keep coming.

    Hey to the guy who started this thread, when I visit France I always visit Fnac for buying music. What else is there in Paris?

    Personally it's very rare when i found a EP that interess me at fnac or virgin, other than i search for a long period. If you want a trick, there's some store near station ''les Halles'', in fact there's a lot of little store everywhere in Paris mixing goth/grind/death/black/emo... a little goddam mess in fact. In France the best solution to find interesting things it's mail-order selling... and there it's a deposit of treasure.
