SORTILÈGE Reunion At Germany's KEEP IT TRUE Festival (Video)

Four members of the classic French heavy metal band SORTILÈGE reunited for an appearance at this year's edition of the Keep It True festval on April 27 at Tauberfrankenhalle in Lauda-Königshofen, Germany

Musicians appearing at the event included:

* Jean-Philippe "Bob Snake" Dumont (Drums)

Video footage of the concert can be seen below.

Eight days earlier, on April 19, SORTILÈGE played a warm-up gig at Petit Bain in Paris, France.

Formed in 1981, SORTILÈGE released a self-titled EP in 1983 and followed it up with an amazing debut album, "Métamorphose", one year later. The two releases quickly gained cult status, and are now known as some of the most important — if not the most important — heavy metal releases from France.

Augustin previously performed the band's classic songs at the 2009 edition of the Keep It True festival (where he appeared under the ZOUILLE & FRIENDS banner).

Although SORTILÈGE's original albums all featured French lyrics (as did practically all French metal albums back in the '80s), English-language versions of the band's two albums ("Métamorphose" and 1986's "Larmes De Héros") were also made available.
