5 Drummerszone artists - Flo Mounier

Flo Mounier
France, Canada
Flo Mounier plays drums in Canadian techno death metallers Cryptopsy. Born in France in 1974, Flo Mounier moved to Chicago 7 years later, where at the age of 13 the ground work was laid and his drumming career started with drum teacher Tony Castelli.

A year later, and now in Montreal, Canada, Flo continued to gather ammunition and to develop his skills. His hard work paid off as he soon became one of the most recognized drummers within the metal scene. Drummer for the band Cryptopsy (formerly known as Necrosis), Flo Mounier has toured Canada, Europe, Japan, and the United States as a headlining act over the last 3 years, and combined record sales have reached over 145,000 copies to date.

Flo Mounier also plays for local Montrealer Rmy Langlois, who's album Echo is making waves in the Rock Qubcois scene. Wherever Flo has played, his reputation remains the same; he combines great chops with blistering speed and technical brutality. Add this to an open mind approach that embraces different musical genres, and Flo has developed an even greater ability to enhance the creative edge within his unique phrasing.

Having studied with the likes of Magella Cormier and now part time teacher Bruno Roy, Flo Mounier's exploration of the Latin / Jazz approach has added an originality to his style which sets him apart from the rest. Flo's speed and precision apply to his live performances as well, and his playing continues to get even faster and tighter. His delivery and execution of complex fills at abnormal speeds will leave no one feeling indifferent.

Flo's style is the example to follow for the new generation of drummers who wish to find out more on what the discipline of extreme drumming is all about.
