L'Oeil Du Tigre



“Hard-hitting (post-)sludge from Montréal, Canada. LE KRAKEN creates a thick wall of pounding riffs, drums & depraved vocals. A dirty, fuzzed out sound that goes perfectly with this kind of music. Think early Isis, Godflesh, Neurosis... Playing heavy epic progressive-minded hardcore, Le Kraken stand out just for sheer power, injecting plenty of furious crusty heaviness and bleak atmosphere into their doomed riffing and slow-building eruptions of metallic moodiness. French Canadian, you can hear the influence of their fellow-canadiens From Ashes Rise ( whose guitar player recorded this album ), so pounding mid-tempo hardcore dirges and droning riffs, and some strategically placed eruptions of gloom-heavy thrash and D-beat to satisfy addicts of this sort of sound. It's equal parts epic crustmetal a la Buried Inside, Tragedy, and From Ashes Rise, and the imposing crush of Isis."
