Talk about excellent timing! Someone in a community was expressing shock over the idea that France has awesome metal bands, and I just so happen to be posting an awesome metal band from France! The stars must've aligned or something!

Ok I must admit at one point I thought of France as an unlikely place for metal, but I know better now. I know now that France is the MOST likely place for amazing metal, especially black metal. Just as the French really know how to spoil grape juice and milk, the French know how to make some of the most extreme black metal out there. This band is no exception and not for the faint of heart. Aigro Mucifelam is a one man project that produces raw but very well produced black metal. The music is raw and extreme with gritty monotonous guitars, fast pounding blast beats and excruciating vocals. However unlike most raw black metal bands, the production is very well done, and yet it doesn't loose the biting and grim feel. Like most good grim black metal bands the album contains no named tracks, just 8 minute bursts of evil sound. Aigro Mucifelam will probably not appeal to everyone, but it really is a mighty slab of well done and grim black metal! France wins again!
