The Group was born in 1992. Group of college students,
will it take a form of inspiration Zeuhl fast enough!
After the disappearance of the group in 1998,
Athanor reborn in 2008 for the release of "Vulv'air" !
The deep inspiration is Magma, Weidorje, Present and universe Zero.
This is overlap (for the second album and more!) the free improvisation
and contemporary-electro-acoustic, Rock in opposition and other music...
Sometimes sulphur mixture, severe, dark and sometimes angelic...

This album is a "flattening" of compositions inspired by Magma, Present, universe Zero...
Hypnotic and haunting rhythms are to go with a minimalist (Weidorje).
Unfortunately (?), it is entirely in computer music...
a 'live' recording means were absent at the time.
So, it was in some way a "archive" promising, not devoid of interest!
