Carnival In Coal biography
CARNIVAL IN COAL is an extreme/avant-garde prog metal band from Amiens, France. They were founded by vocalist Arno STROBL and multi-instrumentalist Alex WURSTHORN in 1995, and set out to mix the quirky avant of MR BUNGLE with the brutal death metal of PAN-THY-MONIUM. The results end up anywhere between death and black metal and genres such as easy listening, disco, and pop.

CARNIVAL IN COAL signed to the now vanished French indie label War On Majors Records and released their debut album Viva La Vida in 1999. The band released their next two albums through another French independent label Season of Mist, and finally signed a multi-album deal with the Elitist sub-label of Earache Records. But the only remaining album to come from was their 2005 swan-song Collection Prestige.

The last album was followed by the band's first tour starting in April 2006 and enlisting additional live musicians such as Pierre ANTONIK and Romain CARON on guitars, Julien CATHALO on keyboards and Alexis DAMIEN on drums. The band officially disbanded in September 2007.
