Le Syndicat was founded by art students J.M. Onni aka Ruelgo and Van Minh L aka Zyklon in Paris in 1982. The first goal of this association was to make noise performances. A year later, the tape label Le Syndicat was created with help from Zorïn, painter, graphic designer, and visual scientist. Their fascination with chaos, strength, and violence was not motivated by provocation but by the sheer pleasure of manipulating noise material. This was the main difference between industrial music and Le Syndicat's empiric bruitism. After releasing some intense noise albums in the mid-'80s, Ruelgo, with new member Veïdt Mjölnïr, turned to more musical styles, experimenting with ambient loops, heavy rhythms, etc.
