Hegemon was a Melodic Black Metal band - born in the winter of 1996, one year after A and N met and decided to work on a common musical project. The arrival of Krzys and F in the band soon completed the line-up. “Rape the Banner of Light”, the first demo, was released in 1997 on Chanteloup Creation. The 500 copies were quickly sold out, so a second edition entitled “Still raping after all these Years” and including three new songs was released late 1998. The band then welcomed J.B. just before recording their first album “Chaos Supreme” in January 2000 for French label “Sacral Production”.
