Amesoeurs - Amesoeurs
Amesoeurs is an experimental band from France, that after releasing a MCD and a split record now deliver their first full length self-titled record. After the release of this record the band split up due to an inability to agree upon the future of the band. And with just one live show performed, let’s see if this band has the ingredients one needs to achieve an illustrious cult status.
 
Amesoeurs' biography claims that they play coldwave metal, a term that described the music quite well. They combine dark, melancholic and sometimes aggressive black metal with post-punk music and 80’s new wave stuff. Heavily influenced by Joy Division, The Cure and Depeche Mode, they lay rampage onto conventional black metal. Personally the intense black metal parts and the weird experimental things they occasionally do are the best assets of this band. I don’t like 80s new wave music, and certainly not combined with black metal. Perhaps it could have worked if vocalist Audrey Silvain would have been a charismatic, powerful and convincing singing voice, which she unfortunately is not at all.
 
Overall the experimental passages on this record do appeal to me and make this self-titled record more interesting than the average black metal record. The black metal parts are pretty nice, but it could have been without the post-punk and 80s new wave stuff, especially with these clean female vocals that are a drag to listen to. Time will tell if this record has the quality to achieve a cult status, but you won't see me supporting that cause though.
