what are good ones?
i like these ones:
for the showing off in front of a french woman. thankyou.
though i've only heard their new album
really sweet shoegaze record, made by a sometime Black Metal artist!
possibly my favourite Black Metal band, have also heard great things about Blut Aus Nord but haven't heard their music yet, sadly
Magma kinda slay if you like your prog brutal, and there's a whole host of other unknown prog bands to explore. They like their music expansive... <3
my dad likes magma, he has a joke about them and ghostbusters, it makes me giggle.
Peste Noire, Les Discrets, Deathspell, Blut Aus Nord, Celeste, All of Neige's bands.
Not all of those are totally bm but they're all great
misanthrope(s) was one of my favourite metal records last year. will check others.

Thread has gone so, so, so much better than I'd dared hope. France is at the cutting-edge of metal, and this should be reflected here.
with all that entails... slightly more sophisticat, much gayer & showier. they also remind me a bit of electric six sometimes.
listen for when the rhythm changes up @ about 2 minutes, it's like having someone push down hard on your chest
not french, new zealand. tech as fuck though.
And yeah, Kourgane sounds like good fun too!
Liking the atmosphere already - quite Deathspelly, if I may...
female fronted dooooom.
dunno though... your reccs don't have to be soul bleachingly unpleasant you know chaps.
the first French punk band, apparently, and the only other French band I can think of now. I would also assume they were the first punk band to use a drum machine (do Suicide count?). they were anarchists to boot. also they highly influenced Big Black, Jesus and Mary Chain and a bunch of others.
They played an ATP a few years ago
Come to think of it, that's the only French band I think I have anything of.
Rad hardcore/math two piece in mould of Lightning Bolt, That Fucking Tank etc
