Born ten years ago in the French Alps, ALKEMYST worked hard and have strove in the obscurity of their rehearsal room to build their melodic fast paced progressive metal to it’s maturity. Noticed by professionals from their demo’s the band eventually signed an agreement with Nuclear Blast for their first album. A steady lineup is a strength of the band, they’ve not had a lineup change since 2000. Ramon Messina (Vocals) ex SECRET SPHERE) and Arnaud Gorbaty drums (ETERNAL FLIGHT) Denis Mellion (bass) Arnaud Ménard (guitar) and Séverin Bonneville (guitar).
ALKEMYST now returns with their new opus “THROUGH PAINFUL LANES” on Nightmare Records. This new recording is the outcome of three years of dedication to the love of music making, mixed flawlessly to achieve perfection.
The band took their time producing this album themselves to their own highest standards and represents perfection in their eyes. They enjoyed working at Taurus Studio in Geneva, Switzerland known for their work with (Sybreed, Etna, Rated X) They Ask that you take the time now and listen and let the music do the talking!
