Miel Noir "Mk1"
Miel Noir started out as the solo-project of Dimo Dimov. Marcel P. and Gerhard Hallstatt only participated in the avantgardistic photo-session used for the booklet that accompanied the 1st release "Le Cabarét Grotesque" (2007, self-released). The 2nd Miel Noir release “Weiss“ (2008, released by The Eastern Front) was a split-CD with B-MACHINA. The 3rd Miel Noir release was "Der Honigflügel“ (2009, released by The Eastern Front).
Miel Noir "Mk2"
The second incarnation of Miel Noir started with the 1st concert appearance on March 30th 2008 in Madrid (Spain). Marcel P. joined as a live-musician. Even though Miel Noir (and Arnica) were late additions to the line-up after Naevus had to cancel and the performance had to be cut short to 3 songs due to problems during the Ostara sound-check, it was the start of “Miel Noir Mk2”. The quote was - on stage - with the intense applause still going: "We are doing this as a band!"
Ever since, Miel Noir has undergone a radical expansion, turning it from an experimental 1-man-project into a full-blown band, covering a wide variety of styles. The first release of Miel Noir as a band was the MCD "Wabenheim" (2010, released by B&W). The second release of Miel Noir as a band was the album "Honey & Ash" (2011, released by Steinklang Industries). The third release of Miel Noir as a band was the album "From The Ashes" (2015, released by Indiestate Distribution). The fourth release of Miel Noir as a band was the album "Honey-Beat" (2016, released by Caustic Records).
