French band Stereoxyde was formed in 1999 and released a five track demo CD the same year, their first full-length album was strangely enough a live album called “Liveage” released in 2002.

“La Création de L’Homme – V2.0” contains 11 tracks, and a multimedia section. Stereoxyde is a fine example of classic heavy metal made in France , as with the majority of the French bands they sing in their native language, and I am pretty sure that they have a bunch of Iron Maiden albums and maybe even a copy of Queenrÿche’s “Operation Mindcrime”.

Being absolutely honest with you, I haven’t heard a band from France with so much potential since Malediction.

The opener “Antisectique” is very good, and the rest of the ten tracks are stone solid too. The album mixes fast songs with slower / crunchier ones, and all songs are very melodic.

“La Création de L’Homme – V2.0” is a strongly recommended CD.  

Recommended tracks: “Antisectique”, “La Haine” & “Naif”.
