Lyzanxia are one of a stable of quality French extreme metal bands, and another band that once featured drummer Dirk Verbeuren, who's pretty much the Belgian version of Gene Hoglan. Apparently their earlier works were more rooted in the death metal category, but they really aren't in that mold now, as on their fifth album (2010's Locust), the band plays a form of modern melodic death/thrash metal with metalcore tendencies, with vocals that at times harken back to Devin Townsend during his Strapping Young Lad days. Having been around for some fifteen years as of this writing, it's clear the guys know what they're doing, as Locust clearly feels like a mature band hitting on all cylinders. An above-average effort in the melodic death metal genre.
