Memorial to the LIVING DEAD BOYS : the Unholy Trinity
'The dead travel fast.'" Bram Stoker, Dracula's Guest
"Created in 2004 by talented zombie guitarist Carnicero, misanthropic undead singer Lagardere and darkness’ reject bassist Romainville, the Living Dead Boys are playing a cleverly kick-ass mix of progressive-rock, icy new wave and electro sounds, raging guitar riffs and genuinely disturbing chants. The three stooges have succeeded where many others have failed, combining the coldness of numeric beats with the dreadful discipline of metal - in a graceful and ungodly harmony.
The three musicians perform high-octane nihilistic and « grand-guignolesque » gigs, using their chaotic aura to raise a dramatic and death-obsessed atmosphere. Add to this samples from classical horror movies (zombies and Co.), macabre shows, and John Carpenter inspired electro loops : you get the Living Dead Boys !
Such a conjunction of gifted people and original music has of course raised suspicions that these guys must have made a deal with the Devil… Indeed, Lagardere’s cursing voice summons primitive instincts and despair from the deepest of the human soul, while metronomic bassist Romainville and unpredictable guitarist Carnicero deliver infuriated and groovy sets, making the music of the Living Dead Boys a – yet unheard - black diamond-like liturgy nobody in the audience can escape unharmed.
This is how the music of the Living Dead Boys is : blasphemous, cultivated and « necromantic » !"
