We formed MEZIRE in 1995 as a Dark Electro Band. During the first years, we published several albums in this style ("Promo 1996", Hardware", "Collector", "Induction"). Through the years, we evolved our sound more and more to Industrial. These new influences become apparent on "95 - 99", a kind of Best Of. With our last album, "Reanimate", released in 2004, we achieved a perfect symbiosis between Power Electronics/Industrial and Dark Electro.
