Fléau – S/T 7” (Pressure / Contra Records / Red Scare Industries)

Spread the love

Lyon, France may not yet be on your radar when it comes to brutal oi! but with this debut release from Fléau things are about to change. Often bands need a good album or two to stake their claim but these bruisers achieve that in less than ten minutes of your time. Treading a path pioneered by bands like The Templars/ Les Templiers (lyrically) or Hard Times (musically), Fléau combine primitive punk and hardcore with raging fury.

If you’re looking for something spiritually uplifting then I advise you look elsewhere, as the songs on here deal with suffering, affliction, nightmares and punishment. Not a bad score for a four song EP! The production is crisp and loud, and musically it is absolutely rock solid so if you are a fan of hard-as-nails oi! then do your best to get your hands on this little slab of violence. Tom Chapman
