The name Lux Incerta comes from a Latin expression that symbolizes the ultimate moment when light is about to lose its battle against darkness. This concept leads the artistic soul of the band, for whom the battle between light and darkness, good and evil, pain and despair is the main inspiration. It is why their music is sometimes melancholic and sometimes hopeful, the vocals are sometimes clean and sometimes satured, the rythm sometimes slow and sometimes fast.
After the split of SYNOPTIA, Benjamin Belot (Vocals & Bass, Aka Agone) decided to create his new project: Lux Incerta, with Gilles Moinet at the lead guitar (Aka Arkham), Josselin Vachon, the previous drummer of Synoptia and Nicolas Leportier at the rythm guitar. The band started to write songs inspired by the gothic litterature. His influences mainly come from doom and gothic music with bands such as MY DYING BRIDE, TYPE O NEGATIVE, PARADISE LOST, KATATONIA or ANATHEMA.
The band always try to lead this project with the best musicians as possible, each of the successive band members having an experience in others bands ("Penumbra", "The Old Dead Tree", "The Last Embrace", "Dark Sanctuary", "Hangman Blood"...). A dozen of concerts allowed Lux Incerta to forge a good scenic experience, alongside with more than one hundred concerts with their others bands for the band members.
