Please introduce yourself and your bandmates, and give us a detailed summary about how Bain De Sang came into being. All I know about you is, that some members were playing in Blockheads, so I’m curious about how did you get togehter exactly, and what other bands and projects did you have in the past.
Raphael: Hi Zoli! First, we’re very pleased to answer this interview, thanks a lot for your support! I played guitar in Blockheads for a couple of years, during the Blockheads / Mumakill split and tours era mostly! Way before that, I played in a band called Aenima, it was 15 years ago, and this is when I met Julien (singer) and Yves (bassist), when we played and party quite often with our respective bands! We discussed a few times with Julien over the past years about starting a band together. And we finally did, it was somewhere in the end of 2013. And it took about 6 to 8 months to finally gather all the bands members. Julien is singing, Yves is playing Bass, Guillaume is playing the drums, and I’m playing guitar. We also might have a second guitarist joining someday!
Julien: I used to sing in a French act called Judoboy, around 2000 something, and this is when Raph and I met! I then played in a band called “Baron noir”, in 2006 I think, with ex members of Flying Workers, a French screamo band somewhat popular at that time. And that’s pretty much it until Bain De Sang. Yves is an old friend of mine, we were both living in the city of Amiens, and he used to hang out with the guys from Judoboy. About Guillaume, he used to play drum in Comity, a chaotic hardcore band from Paris, on Candlelight Records at that time. Also, Judoboy and Comity played quite a few time together. Long time buddies!
