“Millions of years ago, the first elemental bricks of life on a planet in the solar system began a process that led to an evolved life form, the only survivor of the place where it was born… An enigmatic side effect, came from nowhere, changed the game. The divine time was invited, the skull and bones as old chaplets.
Since this meeting in the depths of the ages we have taken a celestial place, we saw the height in our mindedness, and we prevailed on the animal reign. Our destiny written in our genes, nothing could stop this perpetual change. Until the death of the last renegade, reality will still belong to men.
One day we’ll find the finest way to reconnect with the outer space…”

Hailing from France, Lone Survivors is a progressive metalcore/djent/progressive band that is sure to be brought to everyone’s attention when they release their debut album Ground Zero later this year. Featuring exceptionally talented musicians from a plethora of different musical backgrounds, the group was solidified by the addition of Matthieu Romarin (of Uneven Structure) on vocals. Mixing technicality with melody and progression, Ground Zero is an absolute thrill to listen to and is bound to make some year end lists when the guys decide to unleash this beast of an album upon the world. Be sure to support these guys by giving them a like on Facebook and be sure to keep an eye on their official site here to get the chance to order some merch or the album itself! I had the chance to chat with Olivier and Francois about a multitude of topics including the overall theme of the album, what it was like trying to recruit a vocalist, how their first ever show went, among many other topics. Be sure to read about it below!
