Tranzat is a quirky French band (is that redundant?) playing an inventive brand of alterna-prog-metal with a clear sense of humor, as evidenced by the song titles, cover pic, and title of their 2022 album Ouh La La. The vocals (style-wise if nothing else) immediately reminds one of Devin Townsend, which is certainly not a bad thing -- he may not sound just like Devin, but he certainly sings like him. Music-wise, Devin might be a starting point -- this isn't Strapping Young Lad, but at times this sounds a bit like Devin's heavier solo material. Don't be put off by the album cover -- Ouh La La is heavier and more varied that one might expect, and an interesting listen.
