    Le Roi Mort – Live in Vallouise /Pays des Ecrins France 2010


    Le Roi Mort et les Lentilles Rouges was the latest project of some freaked out punkrock veterans meeting their offspring in a genre-busting “cirque du musique”. These bon vivants were blending the finest French chansons with festive polka tunes, twice as fast! Energetic,ridiculous , transgressing and passionate: “Le Roi Mort…” was a whirling phenomenon between the Balkan and Bordeaux. Le Roi Mort: 2007-2011

    ZMIV (1979 – 1984)

      “ZMIV released one of the most raging and collectible euro hardcore EP’s.  The ” Banzai here’s ZMIV beware “  features a strong ruckus of pogo blended with early thrash, but with gruffly-sung vocals by  and neat guitar lines. It’s an 8-song banger without a single boring moment – a perfect hardcore EP.  Their recordings on the “Als je haar maar goed zit vol 2” compilation , as compelling as their Banzai! EP, but in a much different way. An example of  raging crossover in melody and in the riffing, but still fast, urgent, and with a unmistakably punk production.”
