La foi, la loi, la croix

Rated 4/5 (80%) (9 Votes)

Montreal's Thrash La Reine (Thrash the Queen) may give the impression that they're a thrash band based on the name alone but they're more of a heavy/power metal outfit, albeit with the occasional thrashy edge in the guitars. The EP is entirely sung in French with very clean, clear vocals typically used more in a rock band than in metal, but the band's music is so melodic—while maintaining a powerful vibe throughout—that the vocal style works really well here. The delivery sounds a bit "goofy" or "party-ish" at times but the lyrics themselves are anything but, though "Garde la Foi" (Keep the Faith) is rather lighthearted with lines like "le métal veillera sur toi" (metal will look over you). Closer "Du sang sur les plaines" (Blood on the plains) sets itself apart with an epic vibe with some obvious '80s Maiden influences and is centred around the Battle of the Plains of Abraham. If you're looking for some catchy, clean and fun heavy metal, this EP delivers the good.
