Because the French know how to play real death metal, while being original if not avant garde, like how DM use to be back when it was still being defined in the late '80s/early '90s.
They even have solos! What bands actually does those, and not some breakdowns with a few squealing pinches?
This just makes me hate all the "random bi-polar melodic goth/emo sludge&thud pop core" crap bands of today, even more.
OMG! I just had this really freaky image - back in 1988 (approximately) I was in Paris for their really huge July 14th celebration; I mean really, really huge - they cleaned up and painted all the buildings and bridges and monuments for this. They got Jean Michel Jarre to set up in La Defense inside Le Grand Arch with speakers set up all over Paris with giant screens and all sorts of foofora -- what if they had Gomeory/necroplaspheme do the show instead. I think that sound would still be reververating around the world.
But I digress
Er, thanks for the links - I had never heard of any of them but they knocked my socks off.
(someone made the comment "love the vocals" -- isn't that an insult, implying you could understand them)
