SOFY MAJOR: 5 Years of Freaks: CD

Screamo noise that isn’t quite black metal, nor doom, but with song titles like “Satan” and “Black Scars,” rest assured there’s enough juju here to shake a stick at. Spliced sound bites and the occasional drone add versatility to this quartet out of France’s first full length. This is an impressive range for a band that’s gone through numerous members and put out such little work. Keep yer eye on ‘em. Recommended.
