"Out of Metz, France comes the ugly and brutal noize punk of A.H. Kraken. Their name is an amalgam of a facist dictator and a sea monster and their sound is a wild, intense blur of bludgeoning rhythms, industrial clatter, scraping guitars and caterwauling vocals. Citing influences as disparate PIL, Motorhead, US Maple, Suicide, Flipper, The Shaggs and Chrome, A.H. Kraken sound as if they are about to implode or explode at any given second at all times. With all lyrics yelled in barely intelligible French, it s impossible for me to say what they re bellowing on about, though one song is titled Kevin Costner. When bassist/vocalist S.J. was asked about the lyrics he assured that they are ìall about peace and love. I don t believe him.

A.H Kraken are pure, unrestrained throttle burn. They create landscapes of sound with instruments that are obviously getting the shit beat out of them. This is mega-decibel audio destruction at it s most overwrought. This is not for the faint of heart".
