Warning : under the tropics and specially in the Caribbean, there is some devastating cyclones, one of them is recurrent and is called D-FE, and maybe it will go elsewhere to see if it zwenks one day... D-FE is nervous and violent (and sometimes dark), because the band wants to sensitize the public about the different problems of the planet, and specially those of the African continent and its Diaspora, which some of its seven members come from. Associated to the Parisian urban life style, where the zwenks was born, Africa is very present in the visual concept of the group, and it can be disconcerting for certain to seeing Africans dressed in baggys and bubus, with clay make-up on their faces, or also masked like in the pure African tradition as Dogon or Yoruba, headbanging on the most violent metal ; but metal does not come from blues and the make-up of the european black metal bands can not refer to those of African Massaï warriors ? *Thanx to Dindin for this translation. From june 1997 to october 2008, 11 years of total chaos. D-FE was a tribal death metal band, this music was extreme, roots and urban; African-caribbean rhythms and percussions associated with blast beats and very heavy guitar riffs. And on this chaotic sound, we had hardcore and guttural style of singing and a little touch of ragga/hip hop with lyrics in Caribbean (Guadeloupe), was serving as a form of original musical expression, aggressive and politically incorrect.
D-FE was nervous and violent (and sometimes dark), because the band wanted to sensitize the public about different problems of the African continent and its Diaspora. The band finished his carrer with a last LP called Rwanda, a concept about the genocide of 1994. Kama unite, muthafuckers! Read more on Last.fm.
