Trop Feross - Resurrection - 1986 - Québec

Le mot "noise" qui veut dire bruit en anglais possède la même étymologie que le mot nausée en français. Ça veut dire que du "noise" ça doit vous faire mal à la tête par définition. Donc le noise ça dépend pas mal de nos référents personnels en termes de musique qu'on aime... Céline Dion c'est du noise pour moi... Mais au chapitre de la musique gossante pas écoutable en voici un bon chef d'oeuvre : Trop Feross. Trop Feross serait le premier groupe québécois à avoir chanté du metal en français. Jusque là tout va bien, tout le monde peut-être intéressé à entendre ça. Mais détrompez-vous, ça n'a rien à voir avec les canons de l'époque. Rien à voir avec des bands légendaires et de qualité comme Voivod, DBC ou Obliveon. C'est vraiment de la grosse marde en bâton. La fille qui chante chante vraiment mal, c'est mal enregistré et c'est tout croche. La toune Caverne du roi possède la riff de l'Apprenti sorcier, juste pour dire comment c'est pas bon. Les paroles en plus ne viennent pas aider le tout. Si au moins ça sonnait comme du bon metal pour boire de la bière... Même pas... Téléchargez ça si vous êtes masochistes et vous voulez être surpris pas un aussi gros rassemblement de marde... Du gros noise...

    Metal-like, but not in a downtuned and muddy sort of way (think mid-80's demo-days DM). This is especially notable in the opening "Richard Coeur de Fer", where the lead riff sound more like some remorseless, bonecrushing, medieval warmachine than any form of musical entity. Combined with the quirky chorus it makes for a great, attention-grabbing opener. "Trop Fort" is the undisputed highlight of the album though. An incredibly intense cut with roaring, powerful, almost dominant leads after leads that doesn't leave you with one Ahh.. Horror Metal! Don't you just love it? Shut up! Of course you do! Dude, it's like this perfect combination of, like, Horror and, ya know... Metal! Even when sung in French with operatic female vocals it never fails to impress me. This ghoulish platter can definitely count itself among the rarest Canadian Metal releases, whose availability is steadily spiraling itself downwards into negative infinity. "Alright, it's scary and expensive, so what. Is it really any good?" you wonder. Hell yeah! Although like many of the other bands of the genre, they're an acquired taste. I've mentioned the rather unconventional vocals. Add to that a rather 'rumbling' rehearsal-room(cave?) production and music which at first listening sprawls out in far too many directions than is comfortable on the MLP-format. The upside with the raw production is that the guitars sound brutal as bloody hell, almost Death second to catch your breath. If you don't love this song, you simply are not Metal. (Sorry if I had to be the one to break it to you): Their rendition of Grieg's "Hall Of The Mountain King" ("Caverne du Roi") is wonderfully pompous and over-dramatic in a way that only an 80's underground Metal band could get away with, and it's a hell of a lot more inventive than SAVATAGE's usage of the same piece, mostly thanx to Ginette's chanting vocals acting like a 4th instrument in this semi-instrumental cut. The end result sound very ritualistic and very, very Horror Metal. I guess here's where they bring out the coffins and resurrect the vampires in their live set. With "Chevalier Blanc" they go all-out instrumental, and in 4 parts no less. There's probably a story behind the titles, most likely inspired from some long-forgotten, foreboding tome. It begins rather odd, in a twangy, VOIVOD-on-surfboards kinda mood. Then comes a drum-solo which is a total waste of time coz 'Peau Rouge' isn't exactly a genious behind the drums. No, strike that. Drum-solos are a waste of time under any circumstances. The proggy parts aren't that exciting either. Conclusion: a filler.

    So, it's very all-over-the-place as said, and you're kinda left wondering exactly who the hell these people were and what they were trying to do. Needless to say, a full-length album would have been preferred. Still I find it important to point out that "Resürrection" is a lot more genuinely metallic than I first perceived after reading some other opinions on it in lists and on the web. I was kinda worried it would turn out to be some oddball Goth-crossover affair, but luckily that wasn't the case. TROP FEROSS were all-out, bloodstained, steel-plated METAL - violently original, hauntingly dark and ferociously heavy.

  3. Hum, lorsque le monde entier se tourne vers TROP FEROSS, parce qu'il a soif de metal...Ca ressemble a ce que Jeanne D'arc a fait en son temps, faudra-t-il bruler le sorciere Feross?
