The ‘music career’ ended after I contracted Lyme Disease . Sensory overload .
Le Roi Mort et les Lentilles Rouges was the latest project of some freaked out punkrock veterans meeting their offspring in a genre-busting “cirque du musique”. These bon vivants were blending the finest French chansons with festive polka tunes, twice as fast! Energetic,ridiculous , transgressing and passionate: “Le Roi Mort…” was a whirling phenomenon between the Balkan and Bordeaux. Le Roi Mort: 2007-2011
“ZMIV released one of the most raging and collectible euro hardcore EP’s. The ” Banzai here’s ZMIV beware “ features a strong ruckus of pogo blended with early thrash, but with gruffly-sung vocals by and neat guitar lines. It’s an 8-song banger without a single boring moment – a perfect hardcore EP. Their recordings on the “Als je haar maar goed zit vol 2” compilation , as compelling as their Banzai! EP, but in a much different way. An example of raging crossover in melody and in the riffing, but still fast, urgent, and with a unmistakably punk production.”
