Headline biography
French band HEADLINE was formed in 1992, originally named Escape, with Sylvie Grare (vocals), Didier Chesneau (guitars) Sébastien Roland (keyboards), Frederic Roland (bass) and Frédéric Moreau (drums) as the founding members. At the time they started recording their debut album the Rolands had left though, replaced by Phil Woindrich (keyboards) and Christophe Babin (bass).

In 1997 their initial effort Escape was issued, and was given an overall positive reception for their brand of powerful metal with distinct, female lead vocals. 1998 saw Headline explore other facets of their sound though, as they gave an acoustic tour this year. The acoustic setting forced the band to rearrange their material, with celtic and oriental textures added . Some of these rearrangements were issued on the live album Escape Through the Lands issued the same year.

The band starts recording their second full length album in 1999, and also have to get their new line-up in working order this year, as Moreau and Woindrich now were out of the band. New men in became Aymeric Ribot (keyboards) and Dirk Verbeuren (drums). Towards the tail end of the calendar year Voices of Presence saw the light of day, as well as the EP Other Voices. Both of them issued by newly formed record label NTS.


2000 and 2001 are quiet years for the band as far as recording material is concerned. Following extensive touring opening for acts such as Dream Theater and Vanden Plas, the members decide that a break is called for. Some band members use this opportunity to pursue othr creative neds.

In 2002 Headline's third album Duality is released, and it is their most commercially succesful venture so far. Concerts and tours follow, and the band are now popular enough to headline concerts in France. For the concerts in the rest of Europe they remain an opening act though, with Symphony X arguably being the most popular of the artists they open for in 2003.

Verbeuren leaves the band after the promotional concerts are over, as he was offered the drummer's slot in Soilwork at that time. Headline are due for another break, and when they hit the studio again in 2007 Raphael Leger (drums) is the new man in. Headline are currently working on a new album, planned for release in 2010.

Voices of Presence
Headline Progressive Metal

Review by rogiovanetti

5 stars "Voices of presence" is the second album from Headline and shows a changing pattern of band's style. "Scape" explores a more hard rock sound. Instead "Voices" goes through a complex rhythm, melody, lyrics. Sylvie Grare and Didier Chesneau composed mostly of the tracks. The album portraits dark corners of inner feelings and voices. The higher point stants on Trilogy (I,II,III) and a well interpreted dialog between a person and the devil (inside the mind?). More and more, melody really involves atmospheres according to the thematical. Very heavy and yet some classical orchestration and powerfull drums can be heard. "Awaken Dream", last but really not least. Beautifull combination of everything developd along the album.

3 stars 3.5 realy

Headline is a progressive metal with power metal elements coming from France, formed in 1994 and releasing so far 3 studio albums and another couple of other releases before disbanding in 2003. Their second album named Voices of presence released in 1999 is to me their best from all three. A nice and very effective combination of progressive metal arrangements and power metal elements, with a good doze of intristing chops and quite complex musical escapades. The female voice of Sylvie Grare who is very powerful and fits perfectly for this kind of music, did a great job. Headline remind me a lot in manner of composing and sound with Austrian Dreams of Sanity. Grteat riffs and very good vovocal parts. Keybords are used sporadicaly but when enters in the atmosphere, is all pleasent and well done. The best pieces to me is , Getting Down To It , but as a whole all album is agood, nothing realy groundbreaking but pleasent most of the time. 3-3.5 for this album, quite unnoticed to larger public, but for sure needs a better view. They opened in their almost a decade career for big named like Dream Theater, Vanden Plas or Symphony X, the albums were selling ok, the disbanded problem is even more stranger then, but happend after all, never heared about them for more then 5 years now. Still a good band that worth to be discovered by prog metal listners.

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
