HOME  INTRODUCTION  SITE INDEX


Audrey Ebrotié is electrifyingly brutal as the self-taught lead vocalist in

death metal/hardcore outfit Ianwill, which features

Mike Gerardin (guitarist), Tom Ségur (guitarist),

Mathieu Gelinotte (bassist) and Jesse Haddad (drummer).

She sang for Diary of Destruction from 2008-2015, a gothic metalcore group in Lille!

Ebrotié joined her first band at 15 (link).

IANWILL stands for “I am not what I look like”, she revealed during a Belgian interview (link).

They hail from Paris and have been shredding for almost ten years.

The debut album One Credit Left will release in winter 2019

after a seven-year hiatus and Ianwill's acclaimed EP, This Day.

France's metal scene is blossoming as far as they can see.

“It’s very rich of course, very diversified.”

Ianwill have played with Insolvency, Lurking, Deadwood and more!

"Behind the Walls"  VIDEO

Ebrotié knows her presence is somewhat of an anomaly, but she uses the visibility to her advantage

and shows metal’s growing diversity beyond the pale, the default white- or male-only band.

“...when they see me at first, they really don’t know what they are going to hear...



'cause yes, Black people in the metal scene is something rare,

especially in France or Belgium,
 
women in the metal scene is less and less rare, but still...so being both...

I wouldn’t say that it’s a lot more difficult.

I prefer to see the opposite and use it as a force.” (Snooze Control)

"We'll Remain"  VIDEO

 They have several European shows and festivals in store, so stay tuned for more Ianwill!

“Maybe sometimes my presence bother some, but most of the time it arouses the curiosity,

and then I just have to convince everyone that my band and I fucking kick asses!” (link)
