Michel Beneventi / Until The Uprising



Coming from a non-musician family, and having discovered Metal on the benches of college with groups such as System of a Down, Rammstein, Slipknot and Metallica, inspired by them, it was at 15 that I been able to put my fingers on my first guitar. Self-taught, I learned their albums from A to Z to play over them. The passion came very quickly as well as the taste for little publicized musical genres. At 18 I went to a sound engineering school, followed by a music school, the CFPM (Centre de Formation Professionnelle de Musique), where I was able to teach as a guitar teacher. afterwards. In the meantime, I joined the formation "Deathcore" Until The Uprising in 2010 at the base as a guitarist, and has since also held the position of lead singer and composer. The style of the group was then largely diversified towards Progressive Metal where typical elements of death metal are mixed, but also polyrhythms of ambient passages, grooves and acoustics.
