Formed in late 1999 by Franck Lopez from the french group Opera Multi Steel, Alex Twin from Individual Industry and Maurizio Bonito from Volv Uncion, this band takes its roots among the three members' common musical tastes.
Their major influences are running from the britannic Cold-Wave down to the french and german Electro-Gothic styles from the 80's and 90's.
Their sound resources not only include analog synthesisers from 70's and 80's but also audio processings, samplings, software synthesis and acoustic instruments.
The lyrics written by Franck Lopez and Alex Twin explore subjects melting romantism and desillusion, typical symptoms Of the last century's end and from this Third Millenium's beginning.
