Outcast biography
OUTCAST is a progressive metal band from Paris, France originally starting in 1998 as OVERLANDER consisting of Wilfried (rhythm guitar and vocals), Clement (bass), Romuald (lead guitar) and Mathieu (drums). As OVERLANDER, the band self released a self titled three track demo in 1999. The band changed their name to OUTCAST in 2001 and recorded and self released a four track demo "The Source of All Creation" in 2002.

At the beginning of 2003, the band recruited Guillaume and Gregory, two guitar players with one replacing Romuald and the other for Wilfried to concentrate on the vocal duties. They performed in several concerts and started to write material for their debut album.

In February of 2004, Gregory left the band and was replaced in July by Nicolas (SYMBYOSIS, REASON SLEEPS). They signed a two record deal with French label Thundering Records, which released their debut album "First Call/Last Warning" in 2005.

In September of 2007, Guillaume left the band and was replaced by Jean-Francois.

In 2008, the band released their second studio album "Self-Injected Reality" on Thundering Records including a few guest musicians: Jochem Jacobs (TEXTURES), Filip Leo (187 CORPORATION) and Jeff Waters (ANNIHILATOR).

OUTCAST records and mixes their own material at the Unmuted Studio, directed by Aurelien Mauro (Skeleton Crew).

WHY THIS BAND IS IN THE ARCHIVES:

While their earlier efforts lean more toward thrash metal with technical death sensibilities, "Self-Injected Reality" shows a bigger influence of progressive metal with stylistic elements of their influences: MESHUGGAH, GOJIRA, DECAPITATED, MNEMIC, SIKTH, DEVIN TOWNSEND, SYL, and TEXTURES. They were approved by the Prog Metal Team and are very highly recommended.

First Call/Last Warning
Outcast Tech/Extreme Prog Metal

Review by UMUR
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

— First review of this album —
3 stars "First Call / Last Warning" is the debut full-length studio album by French thrash/death metal act Outcast. The album was released through Manitou/Thundering Records in March 2005. The band were formed in 1999 under the Overlander monicker but changed their name to Outcast in 2002.

The music on the album is an interesting mix of Slayer type thrash metal riffing and more contemporary progressive thrash/death elements in the vein of acts like Gojira and Hacride. The band are very well playing and the music is delivered with militant precision. The mix of more old school thrash metal riffing and the more groovy contemporary riffs work well for the band and while some tracks don´t stand out enough (especially some of those toward the end of the album), there are some really killer material on the album that overall makes it a very enjoyable listen.

"First Call / Last Warning" is well produced too. Especially the guitar sound is crushingly heavy and the sound production is really a great asset to the album. Even some of the less interesting tracks still sound pretty great because of how well produced they are. "First Call / Last Warning" might not be the most original sounding album out there but it´s a very promising debut album by Outcast and when it´s most catchy the album is really great. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

Awaken the Reason
Outcast Tech/Extreme Prog Metal

Review by J-Man
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Awaken the Reason is the third album from the tech-metal monsters in Outcast, and this time around the Frenchmen have cooked up another groovy, technical, and heavy platter of extreme metal. While the band's primary influences draw from modern thrash metal, liberal dosages of Obscura-like technical death metal and groovy math metal in the vein of Meshuggah keeps Outcast from sounding like the hordes of other modern thrash outfits on the scene. Most metal listeners will notice a strong influence from the likes of Meshuggah and Gojira in Outcast's sound, and while these comparisons are completely valid, Outcast has a unique edge that gives them a rather original sound. Overall, Awaken the Reason is a pretty solid album that should appeal to fans of modern, groove-based technical thrash.

A good portion of the riffs contained within Awaken the Reason are very djenty, but unlike many other modern acts that subscribe to this downtuned, polyrhythmic style of riffage, Outcast makes these riffs groovy and infectious rather than sterile and boring. Of course, this is also due to the fact that the band mixes up the composition style quite a bit throughout Awaken the Reason - in addition to djenty riffs, you've also got plenty of full-on death metal assaults, mind-boggling technical portions, and even some melodic sections. Outcast does occasionally fall into the 'technicality before memorability' trap, but this album is generally quite interesting throughout its full duration. The amount of time-signature shifts, crushing breakdowns, and complex rhythms always keeps the listener thinking, even as their ears are being assaulted with some very dense extreme metal.

The predominately shouted vocals could've used a bit more variation, but they are still very passionate and well-executed. All in all, Awaken the Reason is a very solid effort in my opinion, and while it does occasionally sound a bit too mechanical and sterile for my tastes, the quality of this release is undeniable. Fans of Meshuggah, Gojira, and Obscura will definitely want to hear this!
