Flawlessly moving between post-rock, post-metal and hardcore General Lee are one of the next batch of twisted beautiful brutal bands to emerge from Béthune, France.

Since 2002, General Lee never stopped to look forward their own definition of chaos, melting intensity, blackness and emotion in a shape that belongs to abrasive hardcore music. After some recording try-outs they definitely head out with a mammoth disc in the name of Hannibal ad Portas and in November of 2010 Roads. Those albums play with feelings and contrasts by creating a tense climate near to the break. Icy and oppressive atmospheres, heavy and melancholic riffing are mixed ton an abrasive hardcore and a blowing off and cathartic screaming. A music that blurs and destroys the usual plans to be reconstructed in pain. One of a kind heavy doom.
