Biography

1986, Treponem Pal launches its very first sonic offensive.
Industrial-groove breaking meets electronic hacking and hardcore, metal and tribal banging… The quintet led by Marco Neves engenders a new sound.
Brutal and lethal.
Mind Opening is the main leitmotiv.
At the very same time, across the Channel and across the Atlantic, Godflesh, Ministry and a few others, experiment this new tendency too.
The future will put these noisy visionaries on the same groove.

1988, a first eponymous lp (” Treponem Pal “) is released on Roadracer, future Roadrunner. The seism shakes the Geiger counter and brings the last resistants down. If there are any left… Treponem Pal builds up a solid following and tours in Europe with Prong and The Young Gods.

1991, new line-up after the resignation of the bass player and the guitarist, who joins Hoax. The ” Aggravation ” lp contaminates the national and international press.
Maximum Biohazard : Treponem Pal carries on spreading its nuclear breath.
Its diversity becomes radioactive…
The critics are ecstatic.

1992, the Treponem pachyderm is invited by Ministry on the Lollapalooza tour…
A big first for a French band.
The hype is optimal.

1993, ” Excess And Overdrive “, considered as the cult lp by the purists, collides the music industry.
Produced by long-time friend Franz Treichler (Young Gods), the scud missile spreads terror in the Matrix… Whereas the flammable single “Pushing You Too Far” sets the dancefloor on fire.
