France (1995 – present)

Psykup is a band from France.

Formed in 1995, their inspiration comes primarily from Strapping Young Lad, Primus, and Alice in Chains. However, Psykup aims at creating different music, mixing up different styles such as and .
The singers’s extremely versatile voices are reminiscent of works by System of a Down and Mike Patton.

Little by little, Psykup came closer to other French metal bands, like Gojira and Sleepers, and became part of the Antistatic group (“collectif” in Fr.), along with Sidilarsen, Leiden, Mary Slut, and Delicatessen.

After the EP “Sors la tête”(2000), Psykup released their first album “Le temps de la réflexion” (2002), which was a collection of disparate creations of theirs, and eventually seduced both public and critics. “Acoustiques” (EP,2004) came out as a bridge between the first effort and “L’ombre et la proie”(2005), the latest album to date.

Current Line-up

Julien Cassarino “Ju”: Vocals, Guitars
David Castel “Vidda”: Guitars
Stéphane Bezzina “Pelo”: Bass
Brice Sansonetto: Drums
Mathieu Miegeville “Milka”: Vocals, Triton

Appearances as guest members

Three members of Psykup (Julien, Brice, and David) are an active part of Manimal: an even more extreme and straightforward band.
Mathieu also sings in Agora Fidelio(intimate post-rock act), and My Own Private Alaska (an original formation of 3 sitting musicians, with very deep heartfelt performances).
Julien participated to “Orphan”, an album from Seaside (track entitled “A Different Place”), and the track “Seule”, by Aeria Microcosme.
Mathieu collaborated with Hypno5e, on the album “Des deux l’une est l’autre”
