Flo Mounier

Drummer for the band Cryptopsy, Flo has toured Canada, Europe, Japan, and the United States as a headlining act over the last 6 years, and combined record sales have reached over 250,000 copies to date.

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, Flo has developed an even greater ability to enhance the creative edge within his unique phrasing. His 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.

His hard work has paid off as he is today one of the most recognised drummers within the metal scene. Flo's style is an 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.
Special Events

Flo Mounier performed at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, on March 30 and 31, 2003. Flo Mounier was invited by Matthew Barney, an American artist who from his earliest work has explored the transcendence of physical limitations in a multimedia art practice that includes feature-length films, video installations, sculpture, photography, and drawing.

Matthew Barney and the composer Jonathan Bepler put together two performances at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City. Other participants were Will Rhamer the vocalist for Mortician and Derek Roddy the drummer for Hate Eternal. The performances at the Guggenheim featured the five-cycle film project The Cremaster Cycle.

Flo Mounier appeared at the Montreal DrumFest on November 7, 2003. Mounier's 25-minute performance included a medley of new material with fellow Cryptopsy members Jon Levasseur, Eric Langlois and Alex Auburn followed by a 7 minute drum solo and a drum "duet" with Ange Curcio (Éric Lapointe, Corey Heart and Jonas). A standing ovation from the audience, comprised of mostly fellow drummers, concluded the event.

Flo Mounier was featured on the cover of Drums Etc magazine for the May-June 2004 issue with Ange Curcio (Éric Lapointe, Corey Heart and Jonas).

Flo was also featured on a sports television show called Adrenaline on CBC French network Radio-Canada, on June 26th 2004. The idea behind this TV show was to discover people that perform at high physical levels in their career outside the sports world.

Flo was part of Demons Stole My Soul - Rock `n Roll Drums in Contemporary Art Exhibit, held at The Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (MOCCA) in June and July 2005.

He performed a solo, exhibited his drum kit and a video projection of one of his solos was shown as the entrance piece throughout the duration of the exhibition.
