Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Anachronaeon started as Human Failure in the year 2002, consisting of Andreas Åkerlind on drums and Patrik Carlsson on guitars, bass, vocals, keys. They rehearsed and recorded ten songs in ten rehearsals. That became the "Human Failure"-demo.
The band then decided to make more serious music, and really work through the compositions. In 2003 Anachronaeon was born, and with "Tales from a hollow eternity" the new path was trampled. In 2004 the band consisted of three members (Mac was second guitarrist back then).
The three recorded the "As the last human spot in me dies" cd (2004) and actually performed a live gig (the only one EVER!) as opening act for Katatonia. Live Kalle Ullbrandt helped with bassduties, but was fired when Mac all of a sudden wanted to drop out of the band to focus on jazz music(!).
Again there were only two, and they decided too keep it that way for now...
In late 2005 a russian Anachronaeon-fan wondered if he could promote the band in Russia, since Anachronaeon still was not signed by any label. The band agreed and within two weeks Stygian Crypt Productions showed interest.
070707 the demo "As the last human spot in me dies" was released by Stygian Crypt Production, with new cover art.
Our second cd called "The New Dawn" was released by Stygian Crypt Productions 7th November 2007.
Our third album is released in December through Stygian Crypt Productions and is called "The Futile Quest for Immortality".
