With more than 350 concerts in 15 different countries, four European tours, participations in several festivals such as Hellfest, three Eps and two full-length albums, Stinky are one of the most hardworking and irreverent hardcore bands in the French underground scene.
Their music is a perfect blend of melodic punk/hardcore with a metal edge. The band capably fuses melody with an affinity for violence, making the music’s quintet a combustible mix of energy and aggression.
Influenced by bands like Comeback Kid and Nine Eleven among others, the Nantes-based group was formed in 2010 and was initially called Stinky Bollocks. Following a few line-up chances, the group finally stabilizes in 2014 with the arrival of new vocalist Claire, whose voice gives a whole different personality to the band’s sound and clearly distinguishes them from the male-dominating hardcore scene.
“Stinky spielen wütenden Hardcore, der sich gewaschen hat... Der perfekte Soundtrack zum moshen!"
