THE GREATEST FRENCH HEAVY METAL SONG OF ALL TIMES?
I got a very flattering e-mail from French reader Vincent Roquefort yesterday. And since I have a particular affinity for France and French culture (Don’t hang me as a traitor, Republicans!), I took Monsieur Roquefort’s claim that “Civilisation Perdue” (that’s “Lost Civilization” to you English speakers) by Sortilège is “the greatest French heavy metal song of all times.”
I’m not really familiar with Sortilège (“Magic Spell”), nor the 1984 album on which this song appears, Métamorphose. But it’s a pretty good song. The greatest French heavy metal song song of all time(s), though? Yeah, I’m not sure… but check it out and let us know what you think. If there’s a French heavy metal song you like better, feel free to suggest it. I know we’re gonna get a million votes for Gojira, and I love that band, too (duh), but let’s try to think outside la boîte a little bit, m’kay?
