Carnival in Coal was an extreme metal/avant-garde metal band from Amiens, France. Founded in 1995, the band mixes death metal, black metal and other extreme metal genres with genres such as easy listening, disco, and pop.
Originally, Carnival In Coal signed to and released their debut album though the now-defunct French indie label War On Majors Records. The band then released two albums through another French based independent Metal label, Season of Mist, and later signed a multi-album deal to Earache Records and their Elitist Records sub-label. The only album to come from this deal was 2005's Collection Prestige.
The band played its first live show ever in April 2006 at the Killer Fest in Chaulnes (France) and then went on to play several dates across Europe, including festivals like Hellfest Summer Open Air in France and Brutal Assault in Czech Republic.
The band officially disbanded in September 2007.
In 2008 Arno formed KrOaK with Marc Pijcke (ACN, Killing Condoms) and also joined Maladaptive. In 2007, he was approached by Scarve to replace Guillaume Bideau. After some rehearsals he finally refused the offer. In 2013 he released a collaborative album as 6:33 & Arno Strobl. He also founded We All Die (Laughing).
In January 2014 Arno Strobl announces a Vivalavida 15th anniversary tour scheduled in summer. In July 2014 he announced that the band changes its name to CinC no to be considered as a reunion since Axel is not part of the new line-up.
