Biography

In 1998, the musical project PROCESS was born. Called at the beginning KARMA, this band is created by five musicians based in the department of the Eure (North West France). After they were playing in other bands during high school, those musicians chose to mix their own musical backgrounds into a single entity.
During two years, the members of the band specified their very original style and they named it NEO ROCK. The year 2000 was an outcome for the combo who determined to officially call for the NEO ROCK music under the name PROCESS.

The current line-up is Liz (vocals), Chris (guitars & music programming), Gilles (keyboards & music programming); Kroma (drums) and Yannick (bass).The band’s songbook is a fusion genre, positioning rock music as most prevailing dynamics in the compositions but with a wide range of musical genres, from electro to pop music including musical trends based on metal influences and notably New Metal Melodic. Some tracks are inspired by bands such as Evanescence, Linkin Park, Deftones or Björk. Loud and incisive guitars, electric and electro riffs, massive sounds surrounded by punchy rhythm sections are the main characteristics of Process’ sound. Vocals are brilliant and switch between a rock/metal style to a pop music one with higher tonalities and above all sang in French. Process claims proudly lyrics faithful to its native language. Therefore, the band renews the rock scene, usually used to an English songwriting hardly exploited by other French metal bands. Keeping this linguistic specificity, Process emphasises its originality through a unique literary style

After many live performances, the five musicians focused on improving their compositions. L’Elysée Montmartre, La Loco, La Maroquinerie , la Scène Bastille, Le Nouveau Casino, Le New Morning, La Flèche d’Or, Le Gibus are all famous places in Paris where PROCESS performs its music.

In 2002, Process released its first self-produced CD (single) - Victim of Yourself . The song was also released as the official single from the album “LOURDE ATTIRANCE”.

After being winners of the 2004 CASHBOX springboard, Process undertook the recording of their first album “LOURDE ATTIRANCE” produced by SHOWPROD and distributed by ANTICRAFT. This record gathers the most successfully completed songs made by the band since its creation.

In 2006, two major events marked a further step for the band. Firstly, Process shot and the promotional video for “Victim Of Yourself” which was broadcasted on channels like M6 Rock, MCM and Europe 2 TV. Secondly, a tour called TIME To Rock was organized by SHOWPROD and ESPRIT DE SCENE in order to promote PROCESS’s first album “LOURDE ATTIRANCE”.

In October 2007, Process released its second album “POSSEDER ET APPARTENIR” (SHOWPROD/ANTICRAFT) with twelve new songs that show an evolution to a NEO ROCK ELECTRO style. This album sounds basically louder and closer to what the band plays on stage. The compositions are experimenting widely varied genres and appear more representative of each member's own influences. As on the first album, the lyrics are more accessible in terms of comprehension meaning.

In the meantime, the promotional video supporting the single “Stara Zagora” on M6 Rock, MCM and Europe 2 TV

PROCESS composes its 3rd album planned for March, 2010 and they present in july 2009, the single Save Me.

**************

C’est en 1998 que s’amorce le projet musical PROCESS. Baptisé alors KARMA, ce projet est né de la volonté de cinq musiciens natifs de l’Eure. Après avoir sévi au sein d’autres formations durant leurs années lycées, ils décident de fondre leurs expériences respectives en une seule et même entité musicale.
Deux années plus tard, après une quête artistique visant à définir un style propre, la formation achève de forger les attributs d’une identité musicale clairement affirmée : le NEO ROCK. 2000 se révèle être synonyme d’aboutissement pour le groupe qui le couronne en choisissant de défendre officiellement ce style sous le nom de PROCESS.

Liz (chant), Chris (Guitare et programmation), Gilles (clavier et programmation), Kroma (batterie) et Yannick (basse) inscrivent ainsi leur répertoire musical au cœur d’une fusion de genres. PROCESS positionne le rock comme dynamique dominante de ses compositions qui, de plus, se décline autour d’un large panel musical variant aussi bien de l’electro à la pop, en passant par des courants ancrés dans le métal et notamment le néo-métal mélodique. Certains morceaux laissent transparaître les influences du groupe comme Evanescence, Björk, Deftones ou encore Linkin Park. Guitares lourdes et tranchantes, riffs électriques et électro, sonorités massives parées de rythmiques énergiques constituent l’apanage principal des morceaux. Le chant est clair et oscille entre registres rock/métal et pop/variété avec des tonalités plus élevées et soutenus en langue française. PROCESS s’ose en effet à délivrer de manière éhontée des textes dans le
