Montreal’s THRASH LA REINE is getting ready to share their second EP “La Foi, La Loi, La Croix” with the world on May 31, 2019.
With the spirit of both thrash and power metal, THRASH LA REINE, who describe themselves as ‘Francophone satirical epic thrash’ create music as they feel it and leave it up to the audience to decide where they really fit in. The exclusive French-language album follows the band’s 2017 EP “Le Metal Est Notre Langue”. The band hints at what the new release entails:
“We do not reinvent anything, but at the same time, we think we offer something that sounds new and refreshing. We want to share Montreal’s culture by making music in French, but we believe this music can be accessible and interesting to everybody around the world.”
Incorporating musical influences from the likes of Metallica, Judas Priest, and Megadeth, they take lyrical inspiration from current events and real life. In the case of their second single ‘Le Rédempteur’ they had this to say:
“This is one of the faster songs with more of a NWOBHM spirit. The lyrics are about the socio-political situation in the world. ‘Le Rédempteur’’ means ‘the saviour’. At first glance, it might sound like a song about a superhero or about some sort of spiritual saviour. But this song is more about politicians who see problems in our world as opportunities to sell us solutions and to make us falsely believe they will make the world great again!”
For the single, the band has filmed a new music video and have teamed up with MetalUniverse for its premiere at the following link: http://www.metaluniverse.net/nouvelles.php?id_nouvelle=34406
“La Foi, La Loi, La Croix” will be released on May 31, 2019, and available for pre-order on Bandcamp.
