MISANTHROPE is an extreme french metal band founded in year 1988. Hard to stick a label on this band as its style is not limited to heavy/thrash/death or whatever metal… It’s like a mix of many, MANY things. Sometimes this band is playing powerful melodic heavy metal anthems, sometimes thrash/death metal with some black metal influences…

This album doesn’t represent their entire discography, they made different things. Have you listened to the songs on the links I put on the first post ?

Yes, I listened to the youtube ones, and don’t get me wrong - they have very original and interesting style. I’m just not into death metal, and it’s too late for me to enter it ... Well, at least I embraced it as death metal ...

It’s okay, and I’m glad you say they have a very original style. I don’t really consider them as death metal but more as a mix between heavy, thrash and death metal. At least it’s a nice thing you listened to it !

I own a copy of the Visionnaire-album. As far as I can remember it wasn’t that bad but I didn’t give it too much attention. I guess I’ll give it another listening session sooner or later. :)

Not their best album, I prefer Misanthrope Immortel (or Immortal Misanthrope) and Metal Hurlant ;)
