Like most bands Max Pie underwent a number of unavoidable line-up changes but kept on writing, rehearsing and step by step building a loyal following thanks to a rigorous touring schedule and impressive stage presence.

The original member Tony Carlino (singer) was joined and renforced by Sylvain Godenne (drums), Damien Di Fresco (guitars) and Lucas Boudina (bass guitar). With this powerful line-up inspired by Dream Theater, Symphony X, ... Max Pie is now creating his most inventive and ambitious material !
