Members Hugo Girard

Vromb (recording alias for Hugo Girard, real name Mario Girard) is a Canadian electronic music act[1] from Montreal. Vromb has been internationally active since 1992.

In the independent underground electronic music scene Vromb has a solid reputation. Vromb creates a unique sound consisting of industrial music, minimal techno rhythms, dense music layers and sci-fi sounds. It sometimes also includes the voices of his fictional character, Professeur Heurel Gaudot.

The uniqueness of Vromb can be fully experienced during his rare live appearances.[2] In fact, while electronic musicians will usually perform with a laptop, Vromb is performing with analog synthesizers.

Most releases by Vromb are made available in refined packagings. Most notable is Épisodes released in 2001 by Ant-Zen in Germany.[3] This release is available under three formats. Of which, the most elaborate is a thick metal box, including a 5" vinyl, a luxurious booklet, as well as a CD.

Since 1993, Vromb has released about two dozen vinyls and CDs on reputed labels from Germany, Austria, Canada, The United States and France such as Ant-Zen, Hymen Records Tesco Organisation, Klanggalerie, Angle Rec and Hushush.One of his more critically successful albums was Memoires Paramoleculaires.[4] His album, ''Rayons'' in 2003 was also well received by a number of music critics.[5][6]
