So, we haven't given this official website so much love recently. Most stuff is happening on Facebook etc and reviews are starting to be found out there on the interwebz (just Google "The Oracle and the Keyholder", and you'll see). So far only good reviews for the album. If you wanna buy the album directly from us, just hook us up!
We are working on new material and looking for gigs for the coming remains of the year. Wishing you a great summer and we hope you enjoy the album!

Juli 1st - Recent news and updates
Hey metalheads! So, what has happened since the last update? Well, "The Ethereal Throne" is confirmed to be an autumn release, which means that within a couple of months the world will be able to hear it!
Smerdulak has done one hell of a job with the cover art and really outdone himself,
which is not to say a little.
We are also negotiating about a t-shirt design by Mr Smerdulak as well. We feel we need a t-shirt that looks as nice as the album, and let's face it... I am like a blind man without arms by the designing table compared to Smerdulak's skills.
We have also put "Wasting Love" on a Xtreme digital compilation that is a free download.
Check out facebook-page for more info if you wanna download it.
"Wasting Love" will appear on the Satanica Production release MUCII that is a collection of 100 bands.
More info on this as soon as it's out (for those of you who actually would like this song on disc).
I have also put in the tracklist and cover art of "The Ethereal Throne" in the releases section, where you also can download the opening track "Mary".
More to come!

April 27 - Recent news and updates
Hey guys... it's been a while since we've updated this site but now we actually have something.
We are releasing a cover song as a free download... Iron Maiden's "Wasting Love".
In our version it is not a ballad anymore, and we interpreted it freely,
so don't expect a version true to the original.
Smerdulak has begun working on the cover art for "The Ethereal Throne".
We are so eager to see what he will come up with... it is said to be really dark.
Hopefully the release plans of getting this album out in 2011 can be true.
Soon we begin working on the next album. We're gonna have a little break for two weeks,
then we get to work!
Join us on facebook (since that's where the most action is today, like it or not)
Thanks for supporting us!

27th of February 2010 - Anachronaeon @Hollywood Metal
Yesterday evening I (Patrik) was interviewed by Brendan Biryla at the radio show
Hollywood Metal. The show featured both Anachronaeon and Eyecult.
Four ANACHRONAEON songs from the new album 2010 The Futile Quest for Immortality
were featured on today’s episode. They include: “Ages Ago”, “The Darkness In The Corner Of My Eye”,
“The Message” and “The Beast Called Man.”
Two EYECULT songs were also featured. These songs are from a December 2009 release
called Morituri Te Salutamus, they are “Aeternum” and “Oblivaeon.”
15th of January 2010 - "The Futile Quest for Immortality" is released!
And finally the day has come... The day that we have been waiting for since that moment in january 2009 when we declared "The Futile Quest for Immortality" complete. A piece of music that is both an image of where we were musically in time, and also where we were in mind. A journey captured on a compact disc.
For us who have lived and breathed this album for more than a year (almost two when you include songwriting and recording) it is like a burden have fallen of our shoulders.
Finally everything we’ve been carrying aroundin our heads is out.
It’s almost like a confession and we stand by this album as a strong one.
This means that we came close to the album archetype in our heads. Closer than we have been on any other recording (Eyecult excluded). Of course we've learned a lot during this year and during the recordings that we will take with us to the next album (hell yes, there will be another album!). In total the performance together with the production have taken a huge leap since "The New Dawn", but I guess that's what to be expected by a band - pressing the borders little by little each time. This is also the first album that was not recorded and considered as a demo recording from our side (which "As the last human spot in me dies" and "The New Dawn" actually are... good demos though).
If you are familiar with our music since before I hope you still feel at home
but at the same time find new things, and if you are not one of our dedicated ten fans
I hope you have found something profound and honest in what is being presented to you. If you want polished, over-produced flat metal dipped in stereotype commercialism
I suggest you move on to another site.
For those loyal who've been waiting as much as we do for this release, we raise a bathtub of beer for you (a bottle does not seem enough). You know who you are and if you are in the credits in the booklet, you bet we know it too.
There's a link to the official press release for the album under the press-section
for music journalists and for those who are interested in general.

11th of January 2010 - Hello fellow Anachronaeonists!
It's time we brought you up to date on what's been going on in camp Anachronaeon lately.
-"What? This update is not about "The Futile Quest for Immortality"?
Nope. Because no matter what happens, the machinery of Anachronaeon (read: I and Andreas)
kick back and just wait for stuff to happen. While the Eyecult drum-recordings took place
took the opportunity to write nine new songs for Anachronaeon.
Since we completed the
Eyecult-recordings, we took a three week break from music to recharge our batteries.
started to work on the follow-up to "The Futile Quest for Immortality".
I can reveal now that this one will be conceptual. -"Not another alien record huh?"
Well, I actually thought about it, but no. This time I took with me what I've learned and was
critizised about with "The New Dawn". This album is about a serial-killer who murder for the
greater good of God by the command of God. Or at least that is how he percepts the situation.
The theme sort of takes on the danger of unscrutinized religion and the human psyche
combined. More on this later.
As of now all the lyrics and music for the album is written (I was actually done with this in
2008/early 2009) and so far all rhythm guitars and melodic lines for 6 songs our of 9 have
been recorded. I save all the solos for later when all basic guitars have been recorded.
Yesterday (Sunday 10th) we were supposed to record the seventh song.
Things did not go so well. Of course it had nothing to do with the actual playing.
The problems were of technical character, more specific about our sound card.
We thought the guitar sounded weak, and when we checked the input we realized that we only
had mono signal. One input channel was only giving 20%. Damn it! Our warranty is since long due and
while Andreas was checking what he could do with the sound card I broke a string on my
guitar... first one in ten years actually.
When Andreas tried to open the sound card we found that one screw was impossible to unscrew.
It was deformed, so we could actually not fix the contact problem. One way to solve it was
for him to press down the input cable through my entire take, but even then the sound was
swaying. We thought that now we have to either send the card to a repair shop, delaying our
recordings for a longer period of time, or that we had to invest good money in a new card.
None of the options felt fun in any way.
I came home with an empty feeling - a feeling of unfinished business.
What we did accomplish that Sunday though before calling it a day, was to reset all
parameters for the card and made a line-in sollution by resetting our sound card from the
very base. So next Sunday there will be no excuses for not continuing our mission.
The Future however holds some uncertainty about how we will proceed with Anachronaeon.
-"What the hell are you saying dude?"
Andreas may have to move, which means that we not be able to record drums or vocals at his
place. We will solve this in the most practical way we can by temporary solutions. There may
be forced longer breaks up ahead and things may take a while longer for everything, but rest
assure - we will prevail! We just don't know what the future holds right now.
Next year Andreas and I have been playing together for 10 years - that's right. And we hope
and intend to go on for at least ten more.
Soon it's January 15th and "The Futile Quest for Immortality" is released.
Thanks for the support guys!

19th of July - "Tales From a Hollow Eternity"
Anachronaeon's 2003 demo - download for free!
Since November is forever away, and the fact that we once
(sometime in 2004) offered all our three fans the entire "Tales from
a hollow eternity"-demo (the first one under the name Anachronaeon)
in 128 Kbps, so that it now is available on russian paysites for mp3 (we
never gave our permission, but of course that doesn't matter in the digital
world) we have decided you give you guys who really want this demo in
nice quality (192 Kbps) the chance to get it.
This demo was the first step into the sound that we have
today, and is special to both Andreas and I. We recorded it on an 8-track
portable studio. We didn't use any metronomes, so all takes are delightfully
"as is". All drums are recorded in one take, just like on the
cd we were about to write and record next: "As the last human spot
in me dies". Of course, we really sucked at playing compared to now.
My vocals are sour a lot more often than now and some tones are bent to
hell and back in certain solos, but hell... I'm proud of it. The first
step of a long journey as it feels to me now. A journey that is far from
However... we won't make it too easy for you.
This time you actually have to e-mail me personally and ask for the demo. Then
I'll send you the download-link.
In return you accept that we e-mail you news about Anachronaeon when something
(like once a year, hahahaha).
So, please, e-mail me at "email@example.com"
and write "Tales" in the subject-line and I will gladly give
you the link.
Hope to hear from you soon, and hope you're longing for
November as badly as we do, so the world can finally hear "The Futile
Quest for Immortality".

24th of June - Delayed release. New site is up!
Since the cover art took longer than estimated we fell out of our previous release schedule.
Stygian has several releases ready which all had ready cover art. Therefor we are sorry to tell you
that "The Futile Quest for Immortality" will not be released until November 2009.
Hang in there with us!
You might have noticed the mp3-player that we have integrated into the
It is a sample player containing about 2 minutes of every song on "The
Futile Quest for Immortality"
in 160 kBps (which obviously kicks and grinds MySpace's ass into meatsauce
Obviously you'll need a flashplayer to listen, which you can download
We also have a new guestbook, and some more buttons in the
menu compared to the old site.
Hopefully you'll find everything you're looking for even faster now.
(You need flash plug-in for the guestbook also!)
Also we've added simple statistics to the site (for the first time ever).
We really wanna know if we have more than two fans out there. Soon we'll
