Antipod initially began as a solo project called Mythrillium, led by Sebastien who composed music without any specific expectations. After sharing his creations with musician friends, they encouraged him to record tracks in a studio. Steven Segarra, the creator and guitarist of “Wedingoth,” was contacted to assist with recording, contributing most of the guitar and bass lines due to his multi-instrumentalist abilities. Several guest musicians were invited to participate in the album, including Steven Segarra, Julien LAGNIER, Fabien LACROIX, and Stéphane MONSÉRRAT.
Over time, there have been lineup changes, with notable additions including Jemina on vocals, the official role of Stéphane, and Élias on guitar, while Gregory departed for personal reasons and was replaced by Aurelien on drums.
