Lvmen was a Czech post-metal/post-hardcore band formed in 1995 in Prague and largely known for being an influence on several bands in the present-day post-hardcore scene. Featuring teased keyboards, brutal riffs, screamed/sung vocals, virtuoso drumming and voice-sampled sequences from 60s movies (mostly from the films of the prominent Czech director František Vláčil, which became the band's trademark), theirs was a brilliant, inspiring output '..blending the heaviness of Neurosis, the rhythmic math-metal of Isis, the violence of Swans and the plaintive whispering of Slint's Spiderland'. (Pitchfork, 2010).
They have released one EP, three full-length studio albums and a compilation An Anthology of Previously Released Songs on Day After Records label.
The band split up following the tragic death of founding member Dáda in April 2011.
Last known lineup included:
Dáda - vocal, guitar
Husar - vocal, samples
Mirda - guitar
Hulo - bass guitar
Melnick - drums
