Must have never heard Gojira, Beneath The Massacre then? Like most countries, France has some excellent bands. I will admit though, despite being a huge franophile/phone the majority of the best music seems to come from anglophone countries.
haha I was being a jerk. I forgot that Beneath the Massacre is from montreal (which has always had an amazing death metal scene). Let's add ion dissonance to that as well. C!NCC is from Paris though.
