General Lee • Raiders of the Evil Eye [LP]
"Since their formation, GENERAL LEE had set out to create a tense musical climate; mixing heavy metallic riffing with melancholic icy oppressive atmospheres over cathartic hardcore screaming.
"Hannibal Ad Portas" (2008), the band’s debut is a chaotic symphony of blackened intensity and bombastic euphoria. The record received critical praise from press and fans alike. The band would go on to share the road Baroness, Helmet, This Will Destroy You, and Cult of Luna.
"Roads" followed in 2010 and showcased a more controlled & mature band. GENERAL LEE’s sound started to take a more individualistic shape that melded the genres of metal, hardcore & ethereal like beauty. Roads was mastered by Tom Baker (Deftones, Ministry, Nine Inch Nails, Monster Magnet) at Precision Studios in the US.
November 15th 2012 will see the birth of the bands 3rd full length, "Raiders of the Evil Eye". With their first two releases primarily finding audiences in France, the band has signed with NJ based indie Play The Assassin Records and will be exposed to their largest audience yet. "Raiders of the Evil Eye" finds the band teetering on the edge of a molecular meltdown; further blurring the lines of the ‘posts’, metal & hardcore. A 7 song 33 minute explosion of extremes! Chaotic yet controlled, Extreme yet blissful." By Play The assassin Rec.
