Native of the French Gevandan’s mountains, Kevin Paradis, have been studying drums since the age of 6, by taking drum lesson with jazz music and experimental music master Michel Blanc, following Dante Agostini method. His first influences were Queen, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Mr.Big, Accept etc.
Aged 16 and lapsing progressively into metal music, by listening bands like Iron Maiden, Lamb Of God, Nile or Necrophagist, Kevin started his own band Dead Talking Mind with schoolmates, and recorded with them an album, “Social Therapy”, doing also duties of vocalist and producer.
After the band broke up, he joined French Death-Metal band “The Seven Gates”, Thrash-Metal band “Deadlysins”, and Progressive Death-Metal band “Death Lab” at the age of 21.
During the following year, he played as a session drummer for “Benighted” and “Seth”, was doing duties of drumming for “Agressor”, and joined Black/Death Metal band Mithridatic. Aged 23, he has joined “Svart Crown”, and was also a session drummer for “Melechesh”. Today, Kevin is drumming for “Agressor”, “Death Lab”, “Deadly Sins”, “Mithridatic”, “Svart Crown”, and have started the Progressive Metal Band “The Arisen” with his mate Jordan Bonnevialle (ex-Dead Talking Mind).
In 2015, Kevin has made his first US tour with Svart Crown, sharing the stage with Deicide, Hate Eternal, Etombed A.D etc. and record an album with Mithridatic (coming by the end of 2015).
Currently strongly influenced by “Ulcerate”, “Kriegsmaschine”, but also by “Between The Buried And Me” or “Animals As Leaders”, Kevin try to keep his drumming as dynamic as possible, and as versatile as possible.
