Franck Camus was born in France in 1970. Early on, his parents got him interested in music by way of classical piano and vocal studies. By the age of seven, he was discovered to possess a great talent in sports, especially swimming. Music, then, temporarily took second place in his life while swimming dominated. While studying physical education in university at the age of eighteen, he rebegan his love affair with music by teaching himself how to play drums. At twenty-three, he was stricken and paralyzed by meningitis at the height of his swimming career (having won swimming and water polo championship titles in French university leagues).
His illness, though, catalyzed his understanding of movement and the human mechanism, and this wall all it took to make him redouble his efforts to rebegin to walk, swim and of course, play drums. Possessed of a strong character, he relearned to do all this and founded his first band two years later, playing high-speed death metal all over Europe with Damn Nation (France) and Feeling of Death (Belgium).
One day in 1996, Franck Camus heard Cryptopsy's 'Non So Vile' and was blown away by the intensity of the drumming. He contacted the group in order to take lessons from drummer Flo Mournier, who quickly accepted.
Franck Camus moved to Montréal in 1998, having brought his big drums with him, and undertook a search for a fast, technical metal band. He joined Paroxysm in 2001, and their first album, 'Revelation Is Denied', came out on G.W.N. records in 2004.
Paroxysm play mind-blowingly technical death metal, yet maintain a groovy edge amid jaw-dropping tempo changes. This has earned them many opening slots in metal show, included one for CryptopsyY at a jam-packed medley.
In 2007 Franck Camus and Paroxysm announced that due to personal differences, they had parted ways.
Paroxysm recruited a new drummer named Florent Bouchy (formerly in BodySerpent).
On a personal level, Franck Camus studies drumming techniques in jazz, rock and polyrhythms with Bruno Roy, all the while holding down a career as kinegiologist in physical fitness centers.
In 2002, Franck Camus got noticed and hired by the Cirque Du Soleil, to train their performers and musicians. Physical fitness and musical training were then joined in Franck's ultimate goal of preventing skeletomuscular injuries in musicians. He has, since then, been preparing numerous clinical projects and conferences (drum fest November 2006), and the release of the new album 'Scars of the Art' in October 2007.
More recently Franck has been drumming for Exhult.
