Bâtard EPs - Chaos (2011) Hibernation (2013) Pluies (2017)

Genre: D-beat dark madness
Country of origin: Canada
Year: 2011/ 2013/ 2017

Noisy d-beat black metal from Québec.
"Formed in 2009 in Montreal, Canada, Bâtard is a trio that makes a hybrid of black metal, punk and noisy industrial. Inspired by isolation, anger and hatred, Bâtard takes their rock and electronic roots to make an illegitimate sonic mix of guttural screams, cold guitars and noisy synth beats. Chaos & Hibernation (2014), a combination of the first two EPs, was released on CD by Russian independant label Kunsthauch. In 2018, american tape-only Witchcult records released the Pluies EP. Disgusted by the music business and rock'n'roll lifestyle, the three members are entirely dedicated in creating new music; therefore, Bâtard never tour. They are right now recording new tracks, particularly written in a hardcore punk vein. Bâtard embraced the impurity of its sound, celebrating disorder and imperfection."
"Hibernation" is totally pure grimy black metal, "Pluies", my favourite, is more lofi than the others.


*special mention to "Nomade" from "Chaos": unique experience.
