Death Engine is a four piece band from Lorient, France who formed in May of 2012.  Death Engine play an ambitious and forward thinking style of music that borrows from several sub genres of underground music.  Death Engine's style of forward-thinking music draws inspiration from a variety of sources that include post hardcore, sludge, post metal, and noise rock.  Musically, Death Engine can be said to be influenced by bands such as Eyehategod, Buzzoven, Botch, Breather Resist, Celeste, and Neurosis.  With that being said, these influences should only be used as a starting point of reference when describing Death Engine's sound because their style is truly unique and impossible to ignore.  Since forming in 2012, Death Engine have released a four song EP titled Amen in June of 2013 and a full-length LP titled Mud in March of 2015.  Place Noir is the band's latest full-length LP, which was released via Throatruiner records on April 13th, 2018.  On Place Noir, Death Engine offer up six tracks of amazing post hardcore, sludge, noise rock, and post metal.  Overall, Place Noir makes for an awesome listen and definitely should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
