Biography

There are two bands with the name Borgia:

(1).BORGIA is a Black Death Metal band formed in Paris in March 2003 by Géraud de Verenhe, whose lyrics mainly deal with the sick, occult, and mystical aspects of the Middle Ages. After the recording of their first demo, which was more Dark Metal influenced at the time but which already featured Géraud’s insane vocal delivery, the band went through various line-up changes that however did not prevent them to play their first gigs. In June 2004, tired of working with disinterested individuals , Géraud got rid of the other members. He then recruited a new guitarist, Charles d’Ocres (who had previously co-written the lyrics to one of their songs), with whom he soon found a new bass player, Aceste de Montauvert, as well as a new drummer, Jacques le Fol. With this line-up the music gained more intensity but most of all, it suited the lyrics perfectly. After a year and a half of intense writing and rehearsing, the band is finally ready to rise again, they thus play some gigs. In April 2006 comes the new demo : “Mandragore”. Jacques le Fol leaves the band in september of the same year. October 2006, Jehan “le méseau” (a.k.a. Seth of Eradicum Humanest) succeeds of Jacques. He then rerecords the drum parts and give a proper mix to ‘’Mandragore’‘. In 2007, the rhythm of concerts becoming intensified with gigs in Paris, Clermont-Ferrand, Lyon, Angers, Lille… Because of uninvolvement, Aceste is asked to leave the band on September 2007.

    Extreme music-wise, France is still pulling down bitches left and right, Borgia disbanding changing none of that. Then again, a fine band this.

    Sadly, this band is no longer around. Between them, DsO and Arkhon Infaustus, France were pulling down bitches left and right.

    Lol, nice ... Lacrima Christi (Juda's Mix) is a goa/psytrance-trance rmx. I am always surprised how many connections exist beetween metal and trance. Keep your minds open (But don't take drugs. Of course no drugs!) :).

    I need to listen to the full-length. Only heard the split with Ysengrin at the moment but it's great. I see the death metal influence in it but for the most part it's that odd dissonance and sinister atmosphere that I find in decent black metal. Impressive.

    To be precise on this page, band's name has to be written in capital letters because it's an acronym (check bio). Thanks

    Ecclesia is fantastic. The production is spot on - it's powerful but the sinister atmosphere is not lost. Great.
