URGENT

HARD/HEAVY METAL FROM FRANCE

URGENT is a group formed at the end of the 90s in Grenoble by a group of friends ... First, it was a group of covers (AC / DC, Kiss, Queen ..), then the group start composition, after the passage of Steff RABILLOUD in NIGHTMARE (for the reformation concert in 1999 at the Summum de Grenoble, the Live “Deliverance” and some festivals - including the famous Wacken Open Air 2000). A first self-produced 2 titles cd in 2002 allows them to sign a contract with Brennus Music for a first album “Out Of Time ”released in 2005 (BR8132). Several good reviews allow them to tour in their region and even, thanks to the internet in full expansion, to export (Spain, Germany, USA and also in Australia!). During 2007, the 5 fellows went up in parallel, for fun, several groups of covers: Iron Maiden “The French Troopers”, Pretty Maids (“Red, Hot & Urgent“), Alice Cooper (“Hey Stoopids!”), As well as an acoustic version of 4 for some events- These different versions of the group allow them to play regularly in Rhône-Alpes ... In 2009, just after the first part of Renaud Hantson and his Furious Zoo, they go back to composing for a second opus that they want heavier while remaining melodic. Many guests join them for registration during 2010 at “Hangar 38” (Fontaine), including Ricky Marx ex-Pretty Maids (“Jump The Gun” era), Jo Amore from Nightmare and Fab Emmanuelson of Ellipsis ... 8 new titles and the cover of “Long Live Rock’n’Roll” (Rainbow) in memory of the late Ronnie James DIO, who died shortly before entering the studio. ASYLUM is also dedicated to him, as well as Steve LEE (singer from Gotthard) and Gary MOORE, 2 other heroes of their youth also disappeared ... The clip on YouTube allows you to see the very “We’re Stars” atmosphere of this recording ... The opening act for Blaze Bayley (ex-singer of Iron Maiden) on 25/3/2011 at E.V.E. / Grenoble coincides with the release of Asylum, all days at Brennus Music (BR8234). Many concerts will follow with Sister Sin, Manigance, Archange, Satan Jokers (SatanFest 2017), Jeff Scott Soto and Terry Ilous (in acoustics), the Fire’n’Steel fest in Switzerland ... In 2015, David left the group for personal reasons ... He was replaced by Pierre Caci as second guitarist. Also joined the ranks of Öblivïon (who will become KingCrown in early 2019). URGENT's third album is currently in production, at Peek Studio (Montpellier) under the leadership of Patrick Liotard (Öblivïon, Nightmare, Now or Never ...), a longtime friend ... A more mature 3rd album, the perfect mix between Pretty Maids and Gotthard ... The Urgent adventure continues ...
