Harmonic Generator is a heavy rock band from
south France, who first released an EP in 2008
acclaimed on the web. One hundred more shows
later, the band takes it to the next level with “When
The Sun Goes Down”, an awaited and promising
album, produced and recorded in Melbourne,
Australia by Mark Opitz(AC/DC, INXS, Jimmy
Barnes, Rose Tattoo, Jeff Lang…). Released in 2013
on Sonic Revolution (Germany), the album has
been followed by two successful European tours,
opening for Girlschool and Jeff Scott Soto. Their
international potential is no longer to be proven.
The five members, Renaud Satre(guitar), Nicolas
Helinger(bass), Charles Roussel(guitar), Alexandre
Roussel (drums) and Quentin Barthès-Villegas
(lead vocals), form a rock outfit with many assets :
sharp guitar riffs, tight groove, road worn shows,
unique and catchy vocals, a really efficient rock.
On stage, Harmonic Generator (name took from
a hit song written by New-Zealand band The
Datsuns, easing the buzz in Australia) takes all its
meaning. Raging and intense shows, with always
this « self-giving » attitude and great musical
qualities paying respect to their many influences :
Aerosmith, Foo Fighters, Velvet Revolver,
The Datsuns, Soundgarden, AC/DC, Alice Cooper,
With a baggage of more than 300 shows in
9 different territories, the band started a new
project : the concept « Heart, Flesh, Skull, and
Bones », 4 different EPs that will form a whole album.
Recorded in Marseille by Julien Liphardand mixed
by Logan Mader(Gojira, Dagoba…), this project
is a complete immersion into the band’s universe
through its many influences and experiences.
The two firsts EPs "Heart" and "Flesh", were released
in December 2014 and September 2015, with the
singles "Lambs and Lions", "I feel fine", "Secret
garden" and "I'll dance on your grave". Skull, third
chapter of the four-parts project, will be released
in October. A video clip is being produced.
The band is really on to confirm its international
