It's been a long time since we had any news from the band from Poitou, the main craftsman of the hexagonal metal scene in the mid-2000s. And to be totally honest, we didn't expect much from them since they haven't given any sign of discographic life since 2013 and the release of "Back To Where You've Never Been". Between the busy schedule of three quarters of the line-up at the trendy phenomenon Carpenter Brut and especially the release of this EP only in digital format and in total anonymity last year, without any promotion except the one of the band through its social networks, the activity of the band lately was close to the flat encephalogram...

But the first notes of 'We Do Not Mourn' reassure us on the health of the quartet. Like Lazarus whose syndrome the band described in its third opus, Hacride has come back from the dead. If he is no longer in the spotlight, he is alive and well in the musical universe that is his own, at the crossroads of death, prog metal, atmospheric and grunge. The time is long gone when the band was affiliated to the mathcore scene alongside Meshuggah or Dillinger Escape Plan...

Treasure This Pain' carries on the now "recognizable between thousand" Hacride touch that deserves to be more known as it is unique in its kind and conveys strong emotions. And for the occasion, the chameleon Hacride is adorned with colors between the rage of a Gojira and the atmospheric melancholy of an Anathema. Then comes the highlight of this EP, 'These Walls Won't Tremble Anymore', which makes us go through all the emotional states during the more than 8 minutes that compose it. After a long and slow pachydermic progression that Mastodon would not have neglected during the "Crack the Skye" era, followed by a bridge with heady refrains led by Luiss Roux at the top of his art, the track closes in apotheosis with a long instrumental with repetitive riffs so bewitching that we would like them to never end, in the manner of a great Opeth.

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end and this EP ends with a melancholic progressive ballad 'Red Oak Tree' in the manner of... Porcupine Tree with grunge hints through Luiss Roux's organ, giving to the Hacride recipe this little extra something that makes it a band like no other.

You will have understood, we have with "Chapter I - Inconsolabilis" the EP of the year... previous! For lack of a real promotion, this sublime EP went almost unnoticed but we can console ourselves by hoping that with this review, admittedly late, the second part of this chapter will have the honors of a promotion worthy of the name to which one of the major actors of the French metal scene is entitled!

PROGRESSIVE ROCK - At the same time complex, refined and very accessible, "Cardington" is one of those progressive albums that we would like to meet more often.
NO ONE IS INNOCENT: Frankenstein (2018)
HARD ROCK - No One Is Innocent continues the fight and offers us with "Frankenstein" the best album of its career.
