New EP "La Foi, La Loi, La Croix" out on May 31st!
Not taking themselves too seriously, they describe themselves as Francophone satirical epic thrash, but ultimately let the audience decide where they fit in in the metal scene. Focusing on telling a story with each track and paying close attention to the song structure and how the listener will be escorted through each thrasher. Exclusively in French and following their 2017 EP "Le Metal Est Notre Langue", the band opens up about their sound on their 2019 follow up "La Foi, La Loi, La Croix":
“We're not reinventing anything, but at the same time, we think we're offering something that sounds new and refreshing. The EP has a good variety of songs. Some songs are faster, some are more mid-tempo. Overall, we have really fast and quick songs and also more epic songs that are almost nine minutes long.”
With obvious musical influences from the likes of Metallica, Iron Maiden and Iced Earth, THRASH LA REINE take lyrical inspiration from current events and real life.
Thrash La Reine is a Montreal-based French heavy metal trio founded in 2017. In their music, they comprise styles of their main influences of thrash and power metal as well as paying homage to their home city and the francophone punk bands that were notorious in the Montreal scene during their college years. In each song, they mix the epic themes of power metal with the social topics of punk and thrash metal to make a style that they dubbed ‘’Epic Thrash’’.
In 2017, in their home studio, they recorded a first EP called ‘’Le Metal Est Notre Langue’’. Since then, they have opened for artists such as Judas Priestess (US) and Tim Ripper Owen (US). In 2018, a second EP ‘’La Foi, La Loi, La Croix’’ was recorded. The recording and mixing were done at Studio Wild with Pierre Rémillard (Anonymus, Cryptopsy) and mastered in the summer by Jacob Hansen in Denmark. The EP is now ready to hit mosh pits around the world with a release date on May 31, 2019.
