L'Homme Puma was born in january 2005 and regroups 3 musicians of contrasted musical and geographic horizons. The stringent music of l'homme puma could be labelled as indie rock spiced up with some dub, noise, post-hxc incursions and enriched with samples (spoken word, electronic noise)... halfway between From Monument to Masses, Sonic Youth and Isis.

Needless to say, "L'Homme Puma" is not a band who will gain mass appreciation upon first listen. Critics will pass off the recording as a novel fusion of melody and audio feeds, but in doing so they are ignorant of the larger picture: a melding of diverse musical craft and imagination coupled with supreme technical aptitude. Perhaps it's true that being smashed between genres, between heaven and hell, L'Homme Puma lacks a solid identity in the world of instrumental rock. However, as fans begin to grow weary of the commonly-themed post-rock ventures, bands who occupy the fringe of experimentation, or those completely out in left-field (yes, the above reference was to the serial killer and the comic, respectively), will gather appreciation and a growing fan base. In other words, there's hope for ascension.

Thanx dude, I linked you too.
I'm checking Jet Black, I discovered it in the similar artists of some bands but never listened to it.

By the way I recommend you Year Of No Light (France) and Suffocate For Fuck Sake (Sweden), and Atheist Prayer (friends)

They all mix posthardcore and screamo.
