An excellent find, thanks to our Anarchist Black Metal VK group: a folk/black metal band who plays traditional folk songs in Occitan language (the only such band I know of) and has connections to the DIY punk/hardcore scene in Turin. Hopefully it'd be OK to post this EP here without the band's permission because "Lou Quinse support free download, copyleft and free information".

"Lou Quinse, It literally means “The Fifteen” in the Francoprovençal dialect, was born in 2006. The meaning of the name does not stop there. The Fifteen is also the number of the Devil in the tarot cards and with this name the Devil is known and called in the French-provençal and Occitan valleys. “Devilish” heavy metal meets a tradition which has never suffered dogma and impositions."

"In 2008 Lou Quinse record their first ep. 5 tracks of Occitan Folk Metal which mixed up alps tradition with extreme music, become a masterpiece with songs like "Calant de Villafranca"and "Para lo lop". Five years later the devil return with a deluxe vinyl edition, remastered by Tino Paratore and a brand new song, "Lo Pal", occitan extreme version of the antifascist catalan anthem by Luis Llach "L'estaca"."
