ASILE: Self-titled: 7"

Jul 24, 2013

Ah, bless the French Canadians, always wearing black and sounding like Motörhead. Oh please, I jest, relax mon ami. Asile are from Ottawa, have done at least an LP, and mine the same dirt as Born Dead Icons and even Complications. These dudes actually sing in French and have that galloping d-beat sound of Totalitär or even early Doom (without the gruff vocals). There’s a definite Motörhead vibe to the riffs, you know that punk/metal sound?, which reminds me of the first Inepsy LP. This is fucking boss; so good I just went and bought the LP. How’s that for a sale?
