Biography

Hegemon was a Melodic Black Metal band - born in the winter of 1996, one year after A and N met and decided to work on a common musical project. The arrival of Krzys and F in the band soon completed the line-up. “Rape the Banner of Light”, the first demo, was released in 1997 on Chanteloup Creation. The 500 copies were quickly sold out, so a second edition entitled “Still raping after all these Years” and including three new songs was released late 1998. The band then welcomed J.B. just before recording their first album “Chaos Supreme” in January 2000 for French label “Sacral Production”. Still motivated by the will to play a violent, melodic and nihilistic kind of black metal, Hegemon recorded their sophomore album “By this, I conquer” in August 2002 for Dysphorie Records. After several live shows and years of dedication to the band, JB called its quits. The four musicians then decided to re-enforce the links between themselves and their music, willing to be as honest and true to themselves as ever.

The next step was to compose a new album still in the vein of the earlier releases yet exploring deeper and deeper the already solid statements of Hegemon - another vision of black metal where violence and anger are channeled in a creative way. Since the beginning the band has evolved from an anarchic war machine to a controlled and intelligent weapon against everything that enslaves mankind. Be it politics, religion, passion, war, etc… Hegemon is an proper entity where musicians are only instruments to spread music. “We do not belong to anything, we don’t want to be linked to anything, we are what we are: dedicated and free souls only.

    Happy_Funeral a écrit : mai 2010 Marduk is the best black metal band. ... 16% agreed at the most, Marduk kinda died back in the days when legion left & honestly i think Hegemon ain't nothing like them (whether new or old formation being spoken of) .. i wouldn't say they're superior either cuz they simply play BM of a completly different style, more technical more inspired more melodic ... :D

    Marduk can't hold a light to Hegemon, or any other band for that matter. [2]
