Founded in 2005, Max Pie originally played classic Hard Rock / Metal in the vein of Deep Purple and Whitesnake. Max Pie gradually evolved into the progressive heavy metal group they are today characterized by extraordinary power and epic melodies. Like most bands, Max Pie underwent a number of inevitable line-up changes, but continued to write, rehearse and build step by step, a loyal following through his albums, a rigorous touring schedule and an impressive stage presence.
Original member Tony Carlino (singer) has been joined by Sylvain Godenne (drums), Damien Di Fresco (guitars) and Lucas Boudina (bass guitar). With this powerful line-up inspired by Dream Theater, Symphony X, Max Pie is creating his most inventive and ambitious material!

In 2015, Max Pie made his comeback with a brand new album: “Odd Memories”. This one is more progressive, more melodic and more powerful than ever. The album was a critical and commercial success in Europe and the U.S.A., both with the Prog-Rock crowd and hard and heavy rock fans in general. March 2016. Due to certain changes in Damien’s life and in order not to hinder the progress of the band, Max Pie have decided by mutual agreement to end their collaboration
April 2016, Thibaut Basely is confirmed as a new guitarist and permanent member of the group. The new line-up is stronger than ever, ready to take on the stages.
