Negativa was formed by ex-Gorguts guitarist Steeve Hurdle, as an experimental death metal project. Following the demise of Gorguts, vocalist/guitarist Luc
Lemay joined, and drummer Etienne Gallo and bassist Miguel Valade were added, culminating in the release of their self-titled EP/MCD in 2006. Recently,
female vocalist Roxanne Constantin has been added to the band, to allow them to explore more diverse genres, moods and atmospheres.
