“It is a way of the cross, a 'remountada', which this superb book retraces in the most beautiful way. Ten years of small venues, ten years of festivals. Ten years of black and white, ten years of colors ...

No one better than Eric Canto, already responsible for the sublime covers of Flaws, Black matter and Maniac, did not know how to seize these moments of truth, of intimacy too. Or when a photographer becomes the sixth member of a collective for the duty of memory. "

MASS HYSTERIA: THE GROUP

More than 25 years of exemplary career! This is what we can write without blushing about Mass Hysteria and that will not surprise anyone. What is more astonishing is the regain of form that the group has known for a short decade with a phenomenal boost since their last three albums: the resurrectional Army of Shadows, the praised Dark Matter and the cataclysmic Maniac.

The latter giving rise to a sold out marathon tour which saw them spin the halls and festivals of France, even affording the luxury of being among the headliners of the prestigious Hellfest and to treat yourself to the Zenith de Paris at the end of the ball. Unbreakable!

The introduction to the book Mass Hysteria

APRIL 2009. PARIS. IN FRONT OF A METRO MOUTH, LAMARCK STATION. YANN HAD CONTACT ME A FEW WEEKS BEFORE. THE GROUP WAS LOOKING FOR A PHOTOGRAPHER FOR THE NEW ALBUM. I WAS ON THE LIST. WOULD HAVE TO TAKE OVER SEROUSSI. PRESSURE..APPOINTMENT TAKEN. SALAD, COFFEE, DISCUSSION FOR A FEW HOURS, STUDIO STUDIO DURING MOUSS'S VOICE TAKES FOR " FAILURES". FIRST CONTACT .

THERE WAS ALREADY THE DESIRE FOR THIS ALBUM OF A DAMAGED Dude. A BOXER, A GUY THAT LIFE HAS CABOSSE. THE TITLE "FAILLES" WAS NOT YET RECEIVED FOR THE NAME OF THE ALBUM BUT THE LATTER WOULD BE METAL, HARD, DARK.

I LEFT FROM PARIS THE NEXT MORNING. I SURVEYED THE RECEPTION CENTERS, THE EMMAÜS, MEET PEOPLE WITH INCREDIBLE STORIES, SHOOT THE HANDS OF A RUSSIAN EX-BUTCHER, MOUTHS, LOOKS, SCARS, PEOPLE FOR THE MOST INTERLOCATED BY A REQUEST VERY FAR FROM THEIR CONCERNS… THEN COME THE MEETING WITH MICHEL MAY 20, 2009 AT 10AM A MOUTH, A BRIGHT SMILE.

HE WAS SITTING ON A CHAIR IN A TENT SOME TESTS THEN A "COULD YOU GIVE A HARD LOOK AT ME, WITHOUT SMILE? .. THAT WAS IT!" ONE MONTH LATER, PHONE CALL FROM YANN "MAN, WE OPEN FOR METALLICA IN NÎMES".

THIS WOULD BE ONE OF THE LAST DATES BEFORE THE FAULTS EXIT AND FOR ME THE FIRST SHOOTING MASS LIVE HYSTERIA BEFORE A LONG SERIES. THE TOUR STARTED A FEW WEEKS LATER. ROOMS. FROM FESTIVALS AND EVERY TIME, THE SAME LITTLE POTTING IN NECK AND BACK WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT AND EVERYTHING DARKS. THE GROUP THEN DEPLOYS A CONTAGIOUS ENERGY THAT WILL SEIZE THE ROOM AND NEVER LET IT GO. WHATEVER THE SIZE OF THE SCENE, A COMMUNION TAKES PLACE. NOTHING CAN CHANGE THIS.

I FOLLOWED THE GROUP THROUGHOUT THIS TOUR AS A PRIVILEGED SPECTATOR, SHARING DOUBTS, LAUGHS, HIDING IN THE TOUR-BUS TO CROSS BORDERS.

'HAVE EATEN WEIRD THINGS IN GERMANY, ATTENDED THE SHORTEST CONCERT IN HISTORY IN SWITZERLAND. LISTENED TO NICO IMITATE DAHO, SEEN INCREDIBLE BRAVEHEART.  THERE WERE TEARS, TERMINALS. BAKES, A BIRTH OF MOUTHS, BEER, DIFFICULT WAKE-UPS. RAPHA HAS REDEFINED THE LIMITS OF KARAOKE. THERE WAS TOO MUCH BEER. NOT ENOUGH VEGETABLES FROM TOURBUSES, HOTELS, SCALES, THRILLS. TRUCK LOADS, TRUCK UNLOADS, SMILES, SWEAT ENCOUNTERS, SNOW, VALVES, CIRCLE-PIT FROM ANOTHER WORLD.

MICHEL GOT ON STAGE, 20,000 PEOPLE RAISED THEIR ARMS TO THE HELLFEST FOR THE END PHOTO. AND THEN A LOT OF OTHER THINGS AGAIN. VS

THESE SNAPSHOTS ARE SOME OF M'S LIFEASS HYSTERIA ON THE ROAD. ON STAGE, BACKSTAGE. THEY REFLECT THIS EXCHANGE WITH THE PUBLIC, THIS CONTAGION OF POSITIVE ENERGY, THIS POWER ON STAGE. . the book mass hysteria is available on the shop.
