Sordide are a BM power trio formed at the end of 2013 in Normandy (northern France). "La France a peur" is their debut full-length album released on 1st December 2014 through Avantgarde Music. They claim that my activities in the RABM movement seem to fit perfectly with their music and ethic, and mostly agree with the answer in my FAQ regaring the quiestion of misanthropy in RABM. As for the sound, I recommend to check out this review, which is pretty detailed and should give you a good idea of what to expect from this album. With my somethat limited knowledge of French BM scene, I'd agree with the main point of that review - it's a very "French" release, despite the "no name, no flag" rhetoric. According to the band, the follow-up album is already in the works.

Bonus: a cover version of a popular song by Renaud, a French chanson singer well known for "a volatile temperament, innovative use of French, and edgy, dark, left-wing social and political themes" (Wikipedia):
