MOTION is born during winter 2012 around Aurelien Baptiste in Lyon, France. Since then they released “Awaken The Storm” their first demo the same year and most notably “Facing The Infinite” during fall 2013, both self-released. This last one, an EP, was mixed by Eyal Levi (The Contortionist, Reflections,…) and mastered by Alan Douches (Born Of Osiris, As They Burn,…). It also features collaborations of Vincent Peignart-Mancini (AqMe) and Chad Ruhlig (Legend). During this period, MOTION played around 20 shows across France and its borders with such acts as Bury Tomorrow, More Than A Thousand, Crossfaith or even Bleed From Within.
Winter 2014, after 2 years, MOTION isn’t facing the infinite, but their future this time. Many changes have occurred in the line-up, including new musical directions following the path of bands like Dream Theater, Gojira, and Karnivool, taking a fresh new progressive, alternative, and melodic direction. The band is currently working on 2 brand new EPs with the first effort due to fall 2014.
