Death Power

In 1985, Avignon (south France) Philippe Tourvieille (guitar), and David Thimel (bass/vocals) started together a first band, which becomes Death Power when Stéphane Guégan (drums) joins the band in 1986. In 1987, the band record their two first demo tapes “Speed-Thrash-Core-Machine”, and “Keep Fit, Fuck More…” (recording + guest lead guitar by Alex Colin-Tocquaine from Agressor). They were very active in the french thrash-metal underground scene with bands like, Agressor, Loudblast, Nomed, Shud, Outburst, Witches, Braindeath, Hoax, Mercyless…. They toured non-stop during seven years with bands like Tankard, Carcass, Holy Moses, Atrocity, Samael, Treponem Pal, Coroner, or Paradise Lost. After a lot of demos massively distributed in the underground, an awaited and very promising first album “The Bogeyman” in 1990, the band splitted in 1991.

Minitel

Solo project of Iconoclast (musician in metal bands Annthennath, Evil Spells, & Silver Machine), originally Minitel was not a standalone project. He started to compose dark ambient with his band Annthennath in the idea to mix the ambient and the indus tracks with a violent raw & linear black metal. Finally not used by the band, he finished these tracks in 2006 under his own dark ambient side project, for compose  the debut album of Minitel, at the time called “HarMegiddo”. Minitel is essentially composed on computer, but Iconoclast uses digital synthesizers, electric guitar spent in dozens of audio traitments + effects, and a lot of home recorded sounds which were tortured & disfigured.
This debut album was finally edited on June 2016 by the label Facthedral’s Hall, under the name of “Abîmes”, on CD jewel box limited to 300 copies.

Velvetine

With guitars, voices and machines, Velvetine gives a rock tinged with electro music blended with wild poetry. By finding its roots both in ethnic and noisy rock music, Velvetine colors its powerful and restless universe with harmonies and subtle tones.
Velvetine was created by two members of former “Septembre Noir”, experts in sound manipulations and manufacturings of musical machines.
After their debut album “Septembre” in 2007, the band was scheduled in various music festivals in particular: Leibzig- Germany (Unter Rock), Prague-Czech Rep. (U Maleho Glena) and in France: Strasbourg (La Laiterie) or Le Printemps de Bourges. They also released several EPs, four clips, and two residences. The band in trio since 2013 worked a long time on their second album “Crematorial Dance”, finally released in March 2016 by Facthedral’s Hall on digipack CD limited to 500 copies. Through its research, the dark universe of Velvetine was enriched with sound constructions and structures that reinforce the originality of this unusual and creative training. On stage, this training now more haunting still crosses the raw guitars and electronic sounds; sometimes industrial, electronica, or ethnic; digital lights and videos, a vintage rock mixed with avant-garde technology. The obvious complicity of the band guides the public in quiet then tense and powerful atmospheres.
Velvetine search actually new gigs in France & Europe for present their new show.

deadrow77

deadrow77 is the solo project of Fabien Della Roma, started at Marseille in 2000. The first track “0X1” was composed in 2001 for the v/a compilation Assortiment de F.H., and his second was published in 2004 for v/a the compilation A Tribute To Burundi. At this time, deadrow only used a MIDI keyboard controlling the G.M. bank of his Sound Blaster internal card for compose some tracks on his P.C.. These tracks were chronologically published in 2005 on a debut album mi-figue, mi-raisin released on Facthedral’s Hall.

In parallel, deadrow77 participated many times with the band Sizzle for their improvised recording sessions.

Now deadrow77 lives in the Pyreneans mountains, he is a farmer who grows organic Saffron. In 2013 he restarted to composed improvised music on an Arturia MiniLab synthesizer, still recorded in multi tracks on P.C.. A first collection (2013/2014) of these new series of improvisations came out January 2016 on a double CD entitled “Dark Waves For Little Greys”, still released by Facthedral’s Hall to 500 copies.
