Global noise, local language: A socio-anthropological approach of the language choice in underground French metal

Résumé : French metal is mostly sung in English. The noise produced by the instruments (guitar distortion, heavy drums, screams, etc.) allows bands to keep a distance from a clear meaning. In metal, like in any subcultural group, there is a wish to remain ambiguous. The use of a foreign language then falls under the same phenomenon. Nevertheless, looking at the few bands that choose to use French in their music, it is noticeable that other dimensions such as authenticity , gender and nationalism are at stake.
