Pitbulls in the Nursery (Rambouillet)
METAL since 2001
PITN is a Metal band which explores differents influences to make a music near Prog-Death and Post-Metal.
PITBULLS IN THE NURSERY, a band made in Rambouillet, near Paris, are a force to be reckoned with. A vibrant mix of thrusting metal, musical mastery and groovy sounds. The result is pure alchemy!
In 2001, they went professional, releasing their 3-track demo IMPACT, signed Alexis Phélipot. This marked a major turning point in the Pitbulls' career.
On IMPACT, echoes of Dying Fetus, Death, Atheist and Meshuggah all combine to forge a unique PITN kaleidoscope of sounds. The initial run of 200 copies soon sold out. A further 500 were then produced, enabling PITN to fuel their publicity.
PITN have clocked up over 100 gigs throughout Europe between 2003 and 2007. They have shared the bill with some of the greatest metal bands of the moment : GOJIRA, CYNIC, BLACK BOMB A, NO RETURN, 7th NEMESIS, ULTRA VOMIT, IN QUEST, ABORTED, KLONE, BENIGHTED, TREPALIUM, HACRIDE and played at prestigious venues such as : LA LOCO in Paris, Le ZENITH in Paris, Le NOUVEAU CASINO in Paris, L'USINE in Geneva, BARBEY in Bordeaux, etc....
With this overwhelming success, the group are eager to do more gigs, bring their music to an ever-growing audience and deliver a show that is increasingly accomplished.
The release of their first album, 'LUNATIC', the fruit of three weeks' labour in the Des Milans recording studios and engineered by Jean-Pierre Bouquet, heralds a new point of departure.
