Created in spring 2005, PALE OBSESSION spent a whole year practicing and working to reach the level of music they wanted to. What first began as a common project of bandleader and singer Joe and keyboarder Christian became a coherent band during 2005. At the end of 2005, the actual line-up of PALE OBSESSION had found together, regrouping, beside the 2 founders, Marc as drummer, Luc on guitars and Christophe on the bass.

A lot of work, consisting in uncountable evenings at the rehearsalroom and a huge amount of practicing hours, was necessary to write and ameliorate each one of the songs. In spring 2006, PALE OBSESSION decided to record a CD including 4 of their actual songs as a first presentation to the public.
A week in July 2006 was spent at the Waltzing-Parke Studios in Dommeldange (L) to record a first CD, called “Songs of love and death”. According to the name, the 4 tracks on the CD will lead you into a suppressed world where love and death become one…

All those words and thoughts mixed to melancholic piano melodies and rocking guitar riffs guided by Joe MAY’s uncommon and outstanding voice will take you to your deepest and darkest thoughts about love, sorrow, desire and even death…

In spring 2007, Fred joined the band to improve to a more bombastic sound and a better live performance ! Another 2 years passed and countless evenings were spent to write new songs and rearrange older ones.

Finally in june 2009, the recordings of their first long player album started in Visby,Sweden, where the drums were recorded. From june to september, the other band members recorded their parts in different studios in Luxembourg. The whole session was conducted by Stefan Helleblad, producer and mix engineer from Visby, Sweden. (
