France's oldest and most well-known death metal band,
Loudblast was formed back in 1986, released an early split
before their proper debut album, Sensorial Treatment, in 1989.
They recorded sporadically over the succeeding years, finally
breaking up after 1998's Fragments album, with the
A Taste Of Death compilation released posthumously in 2000.
They later reformed and released Planet Pandemonium in 2004.
