Shoemaker Levy 9
The band has evolved, and obtained its first on stage experiences through about forty gigs in France, and abroad. Down For Life recorded an EP in February 2000 called "It's always the same old Story", and had 250 copies pressed. This production was distributed and reviewed on specialised networks. The band obtained an initial experience of recording and established links with labels and distributors.
In September 2004, the band welcomed a new drummer. It took advantage of this change to choose a new band name more suitable for the evolved style of syncopated and abrasive hardcore. Down for life became Shoemaker levy 9. The band worked at creating a new performance, and in June 2005 recorded its first in-studio album, "Pantheon".
This first album mixes the more contemporary aspects of extreme music through a mathcore and chaotic hardcore. This mix of extremes gives birth to a meeting of grindcore, nu-jazz, and electro.

He takes the 4-track medium to extremes that are both unreal and unheard of in this "do it yourself" era of music. Comparisons to My Bloody Valentine, Seefeel & Spiritualized arise when one focuses on the effortless sonic bound breaking. The music of Shoemaker Levy 9 from that of his Lo-Fi cousins and puts the project in the realm of one man masters. The single "Cynthia" is a riveting tune, penned to soothe the pain of a friend's childhood violation. On 24 Hour Service Station http://24hr.dreamhosters.com/ Read more on Last.fm.
