The Best Of French Black Metal


You guessed it. The best black metals from the land of garlic and cheese. Generally regarded as the Unholy Promised Land of the most colourless genre of metal, and for good reason.

I've probably missed quite a few bands off this list so some helpful reminders would be nice. I've only included one band from the LLN, because quite frankly I could only think of one band from that silly scene even half worthy of being mentioned on such a list.

It loses some poetic elegance when you say "Brothel in Winter." I'm all for these 24/7 ones myself, though.


No it doesn't. It's a great name for an Atmospheric Black Metal Band. Brothel In Winter. You're all for brothels? If this is a serious statement, I am too. If brothels were legal, and not aids-central, I'm sure I'd be a goer.

Totally; legal, controlled brothels with lots of protection for their "staff" is the way forward I think. I'm sure I'd frequent them should I ever be in the situation where I would need such a service.

Well, I'm the kind of person who likes to try stuff at least once. Minus a couple exceptions, that I am sure you'd have made jokes about. And it's more in that spirit that I would go, if I had the money to spare.

You're in for a long ass post. It's a montage of different movies pieced together to form a story. The movies are classics from the 60's to the 80's. The actors are the same from one movie to another, which gives the pieced-up story anchor points in time, you see the characters evolve from one period to another. The whole thing was dubbed by a team of comedians that used to work with Canal + (the French channel) and were very prolific at the time. The story is crazy, and because everything is just made up, the whole dialogues are just references to movies and it's joke after joke after joke. You need to see it 20 times to discover them all, but it's still hilarious even the first time. I posted some questions in IMDb forums about an English version of it, which can't possibly exist, the movie is unstranslatable, but there are English subtitles around that help a lot, apparently.

The pitch. Goerge Abitbol, the classiest man on earth (John Wayne) dies unexpectedly. His last words are "monde de merde" (I'm sure you understand), and three journalists are commissioned to investigate on the meaning of those final words. The journalists are Dustin Hoffman, Robert Redford and Paul Newman. I don't want to spoil anything, but just the pitch of this movie is a reference to another classic movie . This movie is the inception of movies and movie references.

^I see. The band name makes more sense now. As it has lots of second wave black metal bands references. xD
Judging by my poor cinema knowledge I take it that I wouldn't enjoy that movie very well. The references would pass straight over my head

I understand. But to be honest, the only reason why I saw many classics like those are because they're found in "La Classe Américaine" and I didn't want a single reference to elude me. It filled a huge gap in my movie culture. But I understand, and it's in French, which might be unappealing for some people.

As long as it's next to a picture of me going "aaaaay" like the Fonz does. I figured you'd probably know the majority of these bands though from just generally being around MS a lot.
