Biography

Heliogabale started in 1992.
Influence back then : Sonic Youth/Birthday Party/Silverfish.
Yolk, the first album have been recorded within a few days in 1995 (as for every material the band has released) & was mixed by Iain Burgess, who also engineered the next mini-album : To Pee in 1996.
Then, still avoiding to wallow in the so-comfortable Verse/Chorus structure, Heliogabale released the 72 minute long The Full Mind Is Alone The Clear recorded in Chicago by Steve Albini during the summer of 1997. Self-produced.

Heliogabale finally signed on Prohibited Records (NLF 3, Don Nino & Berg Sans Nipple) in 1998.
Refusing the idea of repeating themselves, Heliogabale chose to throw away their demo two months before the recording session of their next album engineered by Al Sutton (Don Caballero) in order to re-invent themselves by introducing electronics. So, Mobile Home came out in 1999 and is their most pop opus, featuring Eugene Robinson from Oxbow.

After a break and ten years of indie activism, Heliogabale released in 2004 Diving Rooms where the guitars have obviously kicked off the sampler.
Self-produced and recorded in Paris, it shows in a perfect way the electric, luminous and visionary aspect of the band.

Heliogabale is currently writing a new album…
