Athanor biography
ATHANOR is a French Zeuhl / R.I.O. / Avant-prog band created by drummer Cedric MARCUCCI back in 1992 when he was a teenager.

The first version of the band started as a cover band, until Cedric, guitarist Alexis KRENTNER, bass player Hugues NEUMEYER and keyboard player Jérémie TISSEYRE began to write songs influenced by Magma, Weidorje, Present, Univers Zero or Soft Machine. This line-up only recorded a few demos before splitting up in 1998.

Cedric relaunched ATHANOR in 2008 as a solo project, using electronic interface to record a first virtual album, "Vulv'Air" (available as a free download on the website of his label Le Chęne Creux).

He gathered various musicians for ATHANOR's next album "Vos cités sont des tombeaux" ("Your cities are graves"), released in 2012 by the label Le Chęne Creux. This album benefits of the participation of violinist Fabienne GAY, pianist Henri HERTEMANN, saxophonist Laurent ROCHELLE, singer Natacha BROUAT ... among many others, allowing ATHANOR to use new methods of composition, improvisations and musical montages.
