1) An 'ebm' / 'electro-industrial' band (formed 1992, in Belgium), incubated for four years, with influences: Front 242, Klinik & Front Line Assembly. In 1996, they released the Fun single, immediately followed by the début album - soft flesh-hard steel - both on Celtic Circle Prod.. The label also marketed the follow-up, BrainFX, MCD in 1998, just prior to it's collapse.
In 2000, they band inaugurated the new millennium with the disturbing album kmputor, released by Flatline & upon which they revealed an upgraded sound, moving away from their dark elektro roots, towards a more dance-oriented form of electronic music (incorporating goa trance influences & more). A mutation that became even more distinctive on the following double-CD album “Unidentified Flying Frequencies”.After the demise of Flatline Records, IMPLANT returned to Belgian grounds and joined hands with the newly formed but promising Alfa Matrix label. This new collaboration immediately resulted in the “All I Want” single on the split-album “Square Matrix 002” which announced the band’s 4th album “Planet Euphoria”, a release that caught the attention of fans and journalists alike for its trancier vibe, crowned by the vocal collaboration with Canadian female singer Jennifer Parkin (AYRIA, EPSILON MINUS) throughout the entire CD.
The end of 2003 came the release of the ‘Horseback Riding Through Bassfields’, an album that triggered so many questions, not only about the unusual CD title, but also about the direction and ultimate meaning of IMPLANT itself. This album was clearly marked as a turning point in the band’s career, offering a sort of looking glass as to where IMPLANT has been and a glimpse at were they are possibly going. An album that successfully returned to the band’s darker roots progressing further towards intelligent electro, while still offering a solid dance edge. On this new CD, mastermind Len Lemeire teamed up with Myriam Kuliasko, a classical trained jazz singer and was joined on stage by Nicolas (Empusae) on African drums.
2004 saw the release of the successful EP "We Are Doing Fine / Too Many Puppies", and fans were treated to IMPLANT taking to the road again. A tour that highlighted the intensity of the band more than ever before, armed with an ever-growing live reputation acquired over the years through numerous concerts all over the world including 2 shows at the Dour Festival (one of Belgium’s most prestigious underground festivals), 3 slots at the Eurorock Festival (dark wave festival) and a Northern American and Canadian mini-tour.
In addition to his own original compositions, Len Lemeire’s unique approach to remixing also earned him a reputation for releasing captivating product and worldwide respect within the electro community for his stamp of excellence. It is no surprise that bands like SUICIDE COMMANDO, NEON JUDGEMENT, ICON OF COIL, IN STRICT CONFIDENCE, ARMAGEDDON DILDOS, PLASTIC NOISE EXPERIENCE, and many, many more, all received the remix treatment by the IMPLANT genius.
It was also through his dancefloor-killing remix of “Sleeper In Metropolis 3000” that Len got in touch with the legendary poet and singer ANNE CLARK. Together they embarked on a crazy multi-artists event for the Bladelse Summer Festival in 2004, gathering on stage IMPLANT, ANNE CLARK and LUC VAN ACKER for an ultimate ecstatic performance. Planned to be a one-shot show, the symbiosis between the featured artists was so strong that further performances with the same line-up are on the planning.
After a new challenging line-up change, studio guru Len Lemeire surrounded himself this time by sexy Els Van Bijlen on female vocals and the talented Mike Van Raspaarden on live percussion, IMPLANT released his 6th album “Self-inflicted”, preceded by the club-infiltrator "You Can Watch / My Gun" EP in 2005 Together they embarked on a crazy multi-artists event for the Bladelse Summer Festival in 2004, gathering on stage IMPLANT, ANNE CLARK and LUC VAN ACKER for an ultimate ecstatic performance.
This time both the album and the EP feature none other than ANNE CLARK herself as special vocal guest on 2 different songs, next to other guest contributions by artists like RAZED IN BLACK and HUNGRY LUCY.
The intimate “Self-Inflicted” is IMPLANT’s album of maturity on which Len Lemeire once again explores, expands and redefines the limits of his musical spectrum to the maximum. Listeners will discover a special attention that has been reserved especially for the album's strong vocal performances. Modern electronics, sexy female vocals, harsh angry male growls, computer generated melodies, carrying upbeat rhythm patterns and IMPLANT's signature sample manipulations are all on the extended list of the ingredients that make this passionate and provocative album an exploding and eclectic musical cocktail.
