"Between hardcore and death metal, Cage Fight is the fruit of the fierce collaboration between the former singer of Eths and the guitarist of TesseracT, furious, catchy, brutal and sharp."

Discovered in 2013 thanks to the show "France's got talent", Rachel Aspe then had the heavy task of replacing Candice Clot in Eths with whom she finally recorded only one album ("Ankaa"), as personal and rich as contested by the fans of the first hour. Since 2016, she has invested herself as a tattoo artist with a certain success. Settled in London, she met TesseracT's guitarist James Monteith, who in 2021 recruited her to shout into the microphone in Cage Fight. At the beginning a purely recreational project that the Briton destined with his bassist and friend Jon Reid (Broken Chakra) to quench their thirst for good old-fashioned hardcore, the band became a real one with the arrival of the singer and the drummer Nick Plews (Corpsing).

The result of this inevitably furious collaboration is this first album which, considering the background of its progenitors, does not make in softness nor amateurism. Fourteen tracks are squeezed into a menu as chunky as epileptic with a relentless and millimetric power. 

We end the listening washed out by such a discharge of brutality that nothing ever comes to stop if it is not timidly (and at the end of the course) with the cover of the 'Bitch In The Pit' of Body Count, that Rachel softens (very) briefly by a miraculous clear vocals that we did not expect any more. But not all is aggressiveness in this concentrate of anger. Bites that spurt out pure and hard thrash ('Hope Castrated'), a hip-hop wart in the middle ('Cage Fight') or a more audacious 'My Dreams', full of sophisticated melodies and a dazzling virtuosity that doesn't exempt it from a dark and vicious throbbing side, inject this album with a catchy and extremely worked energy. 

Cage Fight wanted to please himself by offering a hardcore mixed with death metal, as if Cro Mags was copulating with The Black Dahlia Murder (the recently deceased Trevor Strnad appears on 'Eating Me Alive'). If an expected success is promised to him, remains to know what the group will make of it, launching pad for a long career or one-shot whose angry effectiveness will have at least allowed to satisfy our most aggressive impulses...
