Le Mouv Channel Featuring Metal Bands

Kaotoxin Records has announced the recording of what could be dubbed as being "The French Peel Sessions" as, for the first time in France, the state-owned national radio network, Radio France, have started an ongoing series of "live in the studio" recordings for nationwide broadcasting on their "Le Mouv" channel.

Earlier this month, Radio France debuted "Le Metal sur Le Mouv," which is hosted by Tanguy Blum and airs every Sunday night. The show is focused on underground metal and has already aired the likes of Ad Patres, Deep In Hate, Drawers, Insain, Nolentia and Miserable Failure so far.

Tanguy reached out to artists on Kaotoxin's roster to record two of these "live in the studio" shows. The first one, with France's Calvaiire, has already been recorded and aired at this location. The next session will feature Unsu, Infected Society and Miserable Failure. This will be followed by and audio/video broadcast of Ad Patres performing live.

For the first session, plans are Unsu will record 20 minutes worth of new material from their debut full-length which is currently being mixed. Infected Society will record another 20 minutes worth of live material, while Miserable Failure will record a live rendition of their "Hope" EP in its entirety along with additional tunes from their current and forthcoming releases.

The band will also feature guest drumming by none less than Benighted/F Stands For Fuck You drummer-extraordinaire, Kevin Foley. The second session will see Ad Patres perform their current set live in the studio. Recording sessions are scheduled for June.

Once there was a girl in the audience. She climbed on the stage and started to strip. She actually was a guy in fishnets, in fact.
