Phil, Steeve and two other schoolmates found Hanniball. The band plays mainly covers of The Ramones, Radiohead and Rush. Steeve begins to write music and some well-known riffs come to life. Hanniball only had a few gigs. Some may remember l'Arlequin. 1998
Victor and Marie-France leave the band, leaving Steeve and Phil in search of new partners. After a short time, Dan joins in. Right from the start, the band clearly asserts its will to play and write progressive rock music. An original group is founded when David and Mouse join the band still keeping Hannibal as its name.
