Biography

Formed in 1995 by Gregg Anthe and Emmanuelle D., MVA first carves out a substantial place for itself within the Dark movement to set soon with its first album “Herbo Dou Diable” (1998) a baroque style, original and trenchant, alternation of neo-classical atmospheres, industrial percussions and strong death-rock songs with staggered rythmics. The whole perfect cohesion wants to be suited to the story and convey the different narrator’s feelings or moods.

But the band, who likes to surprise and try out new perceptions, doesn’t want to be caught in a static musical label trap. Without disowning its roots, MVA lets itself be carried along by its many musical, literary or films inspirations though. “Organic But Not Mental” (2000) demonstrates this point very well in the way that it turns over a new leaf and gives up the first death-rock influences. Just like its title, it is punctuated with sounds reminding the human body’s dull and tubular universe, electronic atmospheres of symphonic overtones, weird samples linked to the bodily phobias and distructured industrial songs.

Then, 2001 sees the birth of “Antechamber”, a brand new project from MVA which takes advantage of this loophole. This album is certainly the most intimate; made of an aerial electronic’s minimalism carried by more pared down and raw voices, it becomes fixed in a surrealist and oneiric landscape.
