Le Pré Où Je Suis Mort

Le Pré Où Je Suis Mort

Le Pré Où Je Suis Mort plays an epic brand of screamo rooted in the European sound - which makes sense because they're from France. Their self titled 12", (their only current release), contains only four songs, but the shortest song clocks in at 6:24.

Le Pré Où Je Suis Mort have mastered a sound that is distinctly European without sounding too much like Daitro or Raein, which is a pit many European screamo bands seem to fall into. The songs are much less disjointed, straying from the emo-violence route taken by some other French bands, such as Mihai Edrisch and The Third Memory. Their style is flowy and distinctly darker than many of the other European bands - imagine Louise Cyphre writing 7 minute long epics with deeper, more abrasive vocals. One of the biggest highlights of this record is the final track, which continues to build up, wash away, and build up again for almost fourteen minutes.

For anyone who was wondering, Le Pré Où Je Suis Mort translates to "The Field [or Meadow] Where I Died".

Love this band and this one is probably one of the ten best records I've listened in screamo genre.
