(Mypollux - what French Heavy Metal looks like these days)

I first ran across this band on MySpace in 2006 and I've been following them ever since. Mypollux is a French Heavy-Metal/Powerpop band and one of those self-contained units that gives every indication of what the future of the music business is going to look like very soon. They released their 3rd self-produced/self-engineered/self-promoted album in 2008 and are getting a good following around Europe based on that. They've played over 80 concerts in 2007, opening for such U.S. acts as Korn. Fronted by the extraordinary vocalist Lussi, who wrenches enough emotion out of her songs they don't need any translation. And all in all, they are a very tight, well produced band.

There's that language thing though - but Newstalgia readers are a sophisticated bunch, so it should pose no problem for you.

Reveille is the name of this track and it's off their 3rd album Dedales, which you can pick up if/when you visit their Myspace page.

They're an intense little band - but damn, the mainstream is so wishy-washy, this is pretty refreshing.

Besides, it's another high voltage Friday night.
