Album Review

There are few bands you can honestly say can morph so flawlessly from song to song that you could fool the average listener into thinking each track was a different band. The 2008 release by Jucifer, L'Autrichienne, is certainly one such album. With hard rock and metal becoming quite predictable and same-sounding by the time of the album's release, it's a treat to hear a band continuously switch gears. Influenced equally by skuzz-indie rockers Royal Trux as much as the behemoth metal of Mastodon, Jucifer keep you guessing as to what their next move will be. Cases in point: an anthemic Sabbath-ish album-opening ass-kicker ("Blackpowder"), a track that shows Jucifer can shred with the most extreme metallists out there ("Thermidor"), slow-as-torture Melvins-esque metal ("Deficit"), and even chimey guitar stuff ("To the End"). It takes a very talented vocalist to keep up with all the genre-shifting, and Amber Valentine is certainly up to the task, as it appears that there isn't a rock style Valentine can't sing or the band can't riff out. For those who (understandably) feel that metal has become increasingly one-dimensional in modern times, L'Autrichienne proves Jucifer is in a class all by themselves. Cheers!

Customer Reviews

Outstanding again

Draiman is wrong about this band, they're amazing. Smooth vocals? Maybe he was expecting to hear Boston. See them live if at all possible, it's simply an incredible show. Live, they're even noisier, and they usually do longer pieces. It's emotionally powerful music. I guess you could call it Alt-Metal. This is some great stuff, buy it and then go see them on tour.

Never fail to disappoint

As always, Jucifer jumps between sweet melodies and hard metal, and makes it all sound easy. Great album.

Good to see!!!!

Glad to see them featured in the "what's hot" section. This is a good, solid release from Jucifer and really runs the gamut of what they have done and are capable of doing. If you get a chance to see them live....GO!!! Totally different experience than the CD and LOUD.....i can't wait to hear some of these songs in the live format.

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Rising out of a new wave of independent music from Athens, Georgia, sludge metal duo Jucifer produced a sound that resembled R.E.M. about as much as the New York Dolls resembled Barry Manilow. Alternating between atmospherics and frantic punk metal, the boyfriend-girlfriend team of Ed Livengood and Amber Valentine began impressing locals with their performing skills in 1993. Their first album, Calling All Cars on the Vegas Strip, began getting airplay at the end of 1998 and was released that same...
