“This is genuinely one of the finest albums of a year packed with incredible albums. All in all, Thrash La Reine are incredibly talented, as is clearly shown by how wonderfully they’ve blended different Metal sub-genres with some slight punk influence and very subtle Gothic undertone, all adding up to create a sound that is nothing short of an absolute joy to listen to. This album is simply euphoria in the form of French language Heavy Metal.”

Montreal’s THRASH LA REINE will be releasing their second EP “La Foi, La Loi, La Croix” to the world on May 31, 2019.
With the spirit of both thrash and power metal, THRASH LA REINE, who describe themselves as ‘Francophone satirical epic thrash’ create music as they feel it and leave it up to the audience to decide where they really fit in. The exclusive French-language album follows the band’s 2017 EP “Le Metal Est Notre Langue”. The band hints at what the new release entails:
“We do not reinvent anything, but at the same time, we think we offer something that sounds new and refreshing. We want to share Montreal’s culture by making music in French, but we believe this music can be accessible and interesting to everybody around the world.”
Incorporating musical influences from the likes of Metallica, Judas Priest, and Megadeth, they take lyrical inspiration from current events and real life.
Teaming up with Metal-Rules.com, the trio is premiering the EP’s full stream at the following link: https://www.metal-rules.com/2019/05/30/montreals-thrash-la-reine-premiere-ep-streamla-foi-la-loi-la-croix/
The band adds:
“The album title “La Foi, La Loi, La Croix’’, in English translation means ‘The Faith, The Law, The Cross’’. We chose this title as these three symbols reflects the themes that are present in our album. On the album cover, we see three characters a Machiavellian priest, an evil queen and a corrupted politician’’ in front of our hometown of Montreal. They symbolize, in a caricatured way, the pillars of our Western society and its own decline.”

Thrash La Reine is a Montreal-based French heavy metal trio founded in 2017. In their music, they comprise styles of their main influences of thrash and power metal as well as paying homage to their home city and the francophone punk bands that were notorious in the Montreal scene during their college years. In each song, they mix the epic themes of power metal with the social topics of punk and thrash metal to make a style that they dubbed ‘’Epic Thrash’’.
In 2017, in their home studio, they recorded a first EP called ‘’Le Metal Est Notre Langue’’. Since then, they have opened for artists such as Judas Priestess (US) and Tim Ripper Owen (US). In 2018, a second EP ‘’La Foi, La Loi, La Croix’’ was recorded. The recording and mixing were done at Studio Wild with Pierre Rémillard (Anonymus, Cryptopsy) and mastered in the summer by Jacob Hansen in Denmark. The EP is now ready to hit mosh pits around the world with a release date on May 31, 2019.
Thrash La Reine est un trio heavy métal francophone montréalais fondé en 2017. Nous nous inspirons des classiques du heavy metal tout en apportant l’énergie des groupes francophones qui ont rendus mémorables nos années de CEGEP. Dans chaque chanson, nous mélangeons les thèmes épiques du power metal aux revendications sociales du Thrash métal pour en faire un « Thrash épique ».
En 2017, nous avons enregistré de manière DIY un premier EP intitulé Le métal est notre langue. Depuis, nous avons fait la première partie d’artistes tels Judas Priestess (É-U) et Tim Ripper Owen (É-U). En 2018, nous avons fait l’enregistrement d’un deuxième EP «La foi, la loi, la croix» . L’enregistrement et le mixage ont été fait au Studio Wild avec Pierre Rémillard (Anonymus, Cryptopsy) et le mastering a été fait par Jacob Hansen au Danemark. Le EP est maintenant prêt â être mis en marché!
