Biography

Geneva, Switzerland (2003 – 2013)

Formed in 2003 in Geneva, Switzerland by guitar player Drop and singer Benjamin, Sybreed was created to reflect their mutual tastes for metal and industrial music, with conceptual contents revolving around social misery, everyday alienation and the decay of the modern way of life in general. Later, they began work on material for their first album SLAVE DESIGN which was released in 2004, and then performed around the US to unleash the album’s electronic violence on stage. Meanwhile, Drop began to compose on what would become the Slave Design’s successor, re-introducing Black and Death metal influences in the process, and thus injecting a new dimension of brutality in their music. At the same time, it further developed the melodic side of the music, increased the use of clean vocals, but retained an electronic touch making Sybreed’s sound easily recognizable among others. For the occasion, the band hired Soilwork’s drummer Dirk Verbeuren, who kindly accepted to record Sybreed’s new album. Later, Kevin joined the band, bringing stability back into Sybreed’s line-up.

Having joined forces with the French label LISTENABLE RECORDS, Sybreed released their second album ANTARES in October 2007. This new LP was widely praised in the international metal press for its catchy tunes and the original use of melodies, and gave Sybreed the opportunity to open for PAIN for a couple of shows, and then embark with SAMAEL for a European tour in April 2008. This finally led them to play at the METAL CAMP Festival in Slovenia.
