History

Eight Of Spades - Lemmy is suing as we speak - was formed in 2004 in Paris, France. The band recorded a self-titled demo in the same year and soon presented the song We’re Eight Of Spades on the Break Your Face compilation of Face First Records. The crossover band issued a full-length called Look In My Eyes in September of 2006. The band changed its rhythm section (Kris and Seb departing) and entered the studio in 2008 to record an album. Pervade Productions issued Driven By Hate in 2010.

Reviews

EIGHT OF SPADES - DRIVEN BY HATE - PERVADE  
For the sake of the band one is going to assume that the girl on the album’s cover is not listening to Driven By Hate. She does not seem too happy. As for the music, it is old fashioned crossover, punk, hardcore and metal. The quartet’s photo depicts three punks and a metal guy and that roughly is proportional to the band’s sound. The album begins with a metallic riff and is full of music that sounds like the more hardcore parts of Anthrax and Motorhead, but truthfully Eight Of Spades is a stretch for Metallian readers and much better suited for punk rockers and aggressive hardcore maniacs. The riffs and vocals exude aggression of the raw kind. There are two vocals present and a variety of song styles from metal to hardcore and back as listening to Ride versus Driven By Hate versus Eight Of Spades demonstrates.
This is the band’s first album and it is some hard stuff, so any 'core' fans reading Metallian should give the young act a chance. - Anna Tergel
