Since 2020, Tobias Rische, former frontman of Alazka, has been on the microphone with NOVELISTS FR. Here, he roars, growls and sings his heart out – and perfectly complements his four band colleagues. NOVELISTS FR was founded in Paris in 2013 with singer Matteo Gelsomino and ex-guitarist Charles-Henri Teule. The latter was replaced by Pierre Danel in 2022. In the new formation, the combo created a true metalcore monster full of driving hooks, hard breaks and hefty sounds with “Déjà Vu”. And that’s what they’ll unleash on us in Ferropolis in 2023.
