Chemin Des Dames [Import]
Thorgen's story started in Laon in March 1998, through ADX guitarist: he introduced Cyrille BAILLY (Guitar) to Marc DAZIN (Guitar) of the band KEOPS (Formerly KARCASS). The two musicians decided then to start a new musical adventure with Bernard LEGRAND (Bass), also a transfer from KEOPS. Thorgen was born from this fusion. It's track-list shows multiple influences: ADX, KILLERS, DREAM THEATER, Michael SCHENKER, PANTERA, METALLICA, JUDAS PRIEST... Answering the public's demands, Thorgen decided to record it's first album "Heretic" in 2002, with it's own means. This allowed the band to become more famous and to sign a distribution contract with the Brennus label. Three years later, the musicians release their second effort, called "Chemin Des Dames" (2005). The self-titled track, "Lingekopf" and "La Voie Sacrée" are intended as a tribute to the memory of the Poilus, the French soldiers who died in the east of the country during the First World War.
