This group derives its name from Beethoven's symphonic work of the same title, which means "Hero" and was meant to allude to Napoleon Bonaparte and his Herculean accomplishments in reforming French society.

These talented musicians named themselves by this title to commemorate mankind's accomplishments and societal development and growth by identifying the hero in all of us and our ancestors.

Their music pays homage to humans' primitive roots by fusing synthesized natural sounds like bird calls, wind, and water with more modern electronic music in a metal, heavy rock combination always incorporating a strong drum beat.

The performers and other contributors to this amazing ensemble include DJ's, computer technicians, environmental biologists, and a sound-tech crew.
