But I'm going to try anyway.
Smili Salim, the founder of the band used to live in Morocco and moved to France for his studies. There he met a number of musicians and before they realized it, they all were in a band. A few line-up changes and ep's followed, gradually pushing the band deeper into strangeness, obscurity and odd darkness. Mainly influences by American rap, metal and Arabic music, this band abuse everything they can get their hands on, guitars, drums, bass, electronics, each other...
Oh, that's sick.
Yes, it is but why shouldn't it be. After all, we do live in a sick world, no? Just listen to these songs. Besides System Of A Down there's a number of nu-metal bands I'm reminded of but Hills n' Pills adds a load of death metal, a hint of industrial and a freaky atmosphere to the whole. That way, bands like Sleepytime Gorilla Museum or Mr. Bungle could also have been an influence for these guys. In mere four track, they show an entirely new universe, a very energetic and intense one too.
My favorite is 'Funky Shit', which sounds a bit like a chopped up Rammstein on LSD. However, I have to recommend you to check out the other songs as well. 'Decaled' opens like it could be death metal but then turns into something Suicidal Tendencies could have caughed up after a night of heavy drinking, still including the guttural growls though. That being said: I don't understand a word of the lyrics. I can't make out if they're Arabic, French or English or just a mash-up.
Mash-up, now that's a good word to describe this. My job is done here...
