Laurent lent himself to the game of portraits, here are some answers to our questions ...
Since when do you evolve in music?
I started playing drums in high school in 96. Nothing extraordinary but we used to play Nirvana and Hole.
After high school I still wanted to play music and so I met a childhood friend, also a drummer.
So I started playing guitar and singing. But I am very bad at the guitar haha. The brother of my friend likes what I do on vocals.
We are in 2001 and I become singer in my first metal band (we were mostly beautiful wankers who made rehearsals on saturday to finish in barbecues in the evening mouhahaha!!!)
Anyway, time goes by and here I am in PACA in 2014 (yes I am from Champagne Ardennes originally).
Nothing musically until 2017 when I integrate a pop rock cover band but it does not fit too much!!!
2018 I meet Dydy head and the FORSAKE adventure begins.
