Demo-on-vinyl from this French band. Recommended for fans of Deathreat, Talk Is Poison, and the associated bands as well as the US and Japanese classics they were inspired by. Four tracks of heavy, ripping hardcore.

Our take: Demo-on-vinyl from this French band, though if you didn’t know what language they were speaking in you’d probably be willing to bet a large amount of money that this was some lesser-known release on the Partners in Crime label. Marée Noire remind me a lot of the more straightforward hardcore bands from that whole crew, namely Deathreat, Talk Is Poison, and Balance of Terror. While it’s by no means their defining attribute, they also have a little bit of the melodic sensibility of Tragedy and From Ashes Rise, but the songs here are pretty much uniformly fast and very hardcore (i.e. zero stadium crust vibes). Even the band’s logo and the typefaces remind me of the Partners in Crime aesthetic. It’s not every day that you hear a new band playing this style of hardcore, so if you’re into this type of thing I’d definitely recommend giving them a listen.
