Originally founded by the AGNELLO brothers, Anthony (vocals) and Julien (drums), in 2009, then followed by their long time friends Bruno CAPRANI (bass) and Loïc MANUELLO (guitars), DARKTRIBE quickly showed their passion of sharing music by recording their first EP “Natural Defender” the same year.

After a period of shows and composing, DARKTRIBE wanted to go further by imposing their own style an

d entered the studio to record their first album, which was mixed and mastered at the famous Finnvox Studios in Finland by Mikko Karmila (Nightwish, Masterplan…) and Mika Jussila (Sonata Arctica, Amorphis…).
The album deals with the path of self-destruction to which the human civilization moves by ruining Earth.

In 2012, DARKTRIBE sign with German label MASSACRE RECORDS and release their debut album “Mysticeti Victoria” on August 24th.


The chance encounter between an accomplished musician and a young kid in a basement rehearsal studio in the south of France. A unique meeting of minds on both a human and artistic level. A powerful voice, clear and high pitched. A guitar, nervous, clumsy and chatty all at the same time.

I was 16. He was 24. He had already supported Asia on stage.

It was the golden age of live gigs in the pubs of

 Nice's old quarter. We hung out together for two years. Then nothing. Studying abroad for one of us, moving house for the other. We lost touch. Life moved on.

September 2004
I didn't know it but my friend had nearly died after falling under the wheels of a lorry, finally coming round after one month in a coma. A veritable rebirth followed, with an inexplicable desire to put rock music at the center of his life. And any shackles that had previously held him back, were cast off forever.

March 2009
I was 32 with 20 years of guitar under my belt. My father and I often thought of him. All the time. I had lots of compositions and a head bursting with big ideas. Something had to happen. Something was going to happen.
"Hello, Mr Aubert? Yeah hello, I don't know if you remember me, it's Regis Lobj..." "No way!!"
Over ten years had passed and Regis had gotten hold of me by managing to trace my parents.
