Kraspoutine Peur Et Degout A Kandahar
There's always something different about a pun-intended band name. It either means wily greatness or flaccid stupidity. Thankfully, with Kraspoutine, we find the former, resulting in strong debut Peur Et Degout A Kandahar. The perfect amalgam of crusty, doom-influenced punk and straight-up thrash metal, the album instantly demands comparisons to early Razor run through a Voivod, circa Nothingface, filter, revealing a surprising embrace of Sacrifice's more progressive riff structures and chugging groove. Peur Et Degout A Kandahar's nine songs are the perfect representation of Canadian metal's most extreme and unforgettable moments. Yes, they sing solely in French but due to the sheer muscle of the music and its aggressive delivery, even us dense Anglophiles can enjoy it on a purely primal level. (Independent)
